Do Not Work Here

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Coby Electronics Corp full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood Compensation Package if you can figure out how to not loose your mid while here.

ConsThis organization is poorly managed, the training is awful, and when you walk through the offices in the NY office its like you are in a concentration camp, nothing but silence and people with frowns. The training consists of being handed a manual and being told read it. You are trained by making errors and then being scolded for them, and therefore learn to never make the same error again. The hours are ridiculously long, and god forbid you hit traffic and walk in at 8:02. Creativity and suggestions are laughed at. I have been in the workforce for over over 20 years and this was my absolute worst experience as an employee. My ultimate regret is that I stayed as long as I did.

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

Career killer, don't waste your talents here

Sales (Former Employee)
Lake Success, NY

I worked at Coby Electronics Corp full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPeople, some of them. If you survive here, you can survive anywhere.

ConsJust about everything. No management or leadership, no strategy, constant financial woes which are then blamed on the employees trying to do their best, clocking in and out like a factory and then management uses this as the basis to fire people even though you may stay late if you are late 10 minutes you are through. Everyone on management does what the owner says and are too afraid or have given up trying to convince him otherwise.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey wouldn't listen anyway so why bother,

A CE company, or rather a company period, to be avoided at the cost of your career.

Senior (Current Employee)

I have been working at Coby Electronics Corp

ProsAble to hire competent people from good companies under the promise of a brighter future.

ConsInability to deliver that promise due to poor leadership/communication/management/strategic vision, petty squabbles, selfishness, lack of character overall, and racial bias.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe last minute "seasonal sale" will eventually run out. Your exec. leadership is outdated. Time to pass the baton.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Go for the basics

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Coby Electronics Corp

ProsYou'll learn a lot. Really, you will. Nothing is taken for granted and nothing is assumed. Each and every aspect of each and every possibility is taken into consideration.

ConsNot that that's the best way to handle a business of that size... You'll spend countless hours, needlessly doing research on the whims of a senior level manager. Forget the work/life balance. It doesn't exist.

Advice to Senior ManagementPuppet regimes don't work. Know when your ability has outgrown your ability and know when to let the bright minds that you've spent all that money hiring, do their job. Stop forcing the old way onto the new staff... otherwise, just go get some robots.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
