The company is great; my department is badly managed

Can't Divulge (Current Employee)
Ewing, NJ

I have been working at Cenlar full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPrivately owned, growing company. The CEO and board of directors really care about the company and their employees.

ConsThe direct managers are something different. They don't care to listen to their own employees and rarely ask our professional opinions. Decisions are made based on their intuition or based on fear of adverse judgement.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is little interaction between management and their technically-expert staff. Management should encourage career growth, give them respect and acquire respect in the process.

It's a paycheck.

Customer Service (Current Employee)
Ewing, NJ

I have been working at Cenlar full-time for less than a year

ProsIt's a steady paycheck, nice office, convenient to get to, always hiring.

ConsDreary work, you feel like a worker bee, low salary after 6 weeks of intense training and for your responsibilities. Useless work manual. Virtually no communication between departments. QA constantly nitpicking about minor mistakes. No interaction among employees, you don't get to know them. You're expected to sit in your cube for eight hours, taking calls that are either repetitive or from angry customers, never speaking to anyone, then you go home.

Advice to Senior ManagementRevamp the "manual", it's not user friendly. Change the work environment to have more interaction between employees. Raise the wages commensurate with the intense training and knowledge needed for the job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Are you kidding me

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cenlar

ProsHave a job, get a paycheck

ConsNo one knows what they are doing. Everyone in their own little world, company trying to grow with employees who are still in the 80s. No one wants to work. Management is non-existant

Advice to Senior ManagementWake up cut off the dead weight and the inexperienced kids. They arent a brain trust they are lazy

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not horrible, but they are unorganized.

Customer Service (Current Employee)
Ewing, NJ

I have been working at Cenlar full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat people to work with, pay is decent, lots of open positions to transfer to after a year, benefits are outstanding.

ConsThey recently hired a mass amount of people to accommodate a move to a new building, but they obviously didn't think things through because (a) there's only parking for 350 or so employees and (b) There are no desks available. I was so excited to get the position only to find out we have to take a shuttle bus from the new location to the old location. Originally it was set to be until March (which was fine because I was hired in January) but now I am hearing until May. It's frustrating because the schedules become difficult to deal with - it's like taking public transportation. Not only that, but imagine being hired and then told "well, we don't have a desk for you. Sit in this cafeteria and we'll set you up with a computer and phone." Then finding out that the cafeteria is STILL operating - so that means LOUD LOUD LOUD noise - people screaming at lunch, laughing loudly all while you are trying to remain professional on the phone and having the customer ask you over and over what is all the noise and you having to lie and say "well someone just got told they are having a baby" or some other excuse. Not only that, but they crammed about 40 of us in this little cafeteria. We are all disgruntled and hardly anyone wants to keep this job. All we do all day long is complain to each other about how much we can't stand how we are treated as NEW employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementBefore you make a decision to accommodate clients by having more employees, you should know that there is a place to put them first.
