    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Stamford, CT

    I have been working at Conair full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Standard 9-5 hours. Very little overtime.
    Free lunch
    Decent health insurance
    Nice profit sharing plan

    Cons

    People are promoted without the accompanying compensation. Because of that it's a company of commuters.
    The owner micro manages every aspect of the business.
    Very little room for advancement or professional growth.
    A place to work just to say you have a job.
    The most talented people either leave for greener pastures or get fired for being too smart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There really is no advice to give. The owner runs the place with an iron fist. He's going to do whatever he wants regardless of what anyone says.

    Very Hostile - Don't get stuck here if you can help it

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Conair full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Raises aren't great by any means, but consistent (even in a down economy)
    Stable company if you can handle the bullying from your bosses

    Cons

    There are two classes of employees here: the chosen ones and the despised ones. Doing a good job is irrelevant. Saving money or creating efficiencies is irrelevant. Accountability is non existent if you are a chosen one. If you are despised, watch your back. There is no changing roles, reputations, or "employee class". Management ego is at the forefront of every decision. Kiss the ring or kiss your future in this company goodbye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice at all. Either you're aware of the hostile environment you create and find it acceptable, or you're unaware and you're blind and can't read this website.

    Pros

    Comp breakfast and lunch, profit sharing and 401-k, good people. Benefits are good but each year the cost increases while coverages decrease

    Cons

    Employees are overworked or bored to death. People are often fired for very little offenses while others get away with murder. Boss has his favorites list. Compensation is all over the board but in most cases are below market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees. Get more feedback from the people in the tredges

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Stamford, CT
    Current Employee - Product Manager in Stamford, CT

    I have been working at Conair full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned a lot by using my own resourcefulness.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. Once you are in a job, you are stuck. Petty behavior among top management, you are embarrassed to be seen with them at client meetings. Overall, very unprofessional. The human resources department is basically nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in a human resources department and teach your managers how to develop people.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Stamford, CT

    I have been working at Conair full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people, no-cost breakfast and lunch, decent profit sharing, great options for investing your 401-k

    Cons

    Salaries are below market, some departments get away with murder while others are held to strict rules. People leave the company and their positions are often not filled while their colleagues are expected to pickup the workload without additional compensation. Hostile workplace. Really unfair across the board. If you're used to corporate America, this will be a tough transition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To retain good people, get market salary information and bring people up to where they should be instead of giving them the basic raise. Just because you're a friend of the family, doesn't make you qualified for the job and definitely doesn't qualify you for a higher salary.
