Not a place to be a minority

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsHealth care above average, though that is changing

Executive management may finally be understanding there's problems with the company and middle management.

ConsIf you want advancement, you'd better be a WASP male. If you're a minority then you may get hired, but your chances of training and advancement are non existent.

Chances of your pay increasing above what you hire in at very low - If you get an increase in line with inflation you'll be doing well.

Corporate policies are largely lip service ignored outside NJ

Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle management will tell you what they think you want to hear. Dont bank the farm on it being true and accurate.

Accept that there are issues and that they need ti be fixed. Being the only game in town isn't a good reason for mismanagement and apathy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
