A great company going through some really rocky times!

Worker Bee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsThe people were great and very friendly. There is no brick wall between the employees and senior management. I knew them all quite well, even on a personal level. When good work is done, it is recognized (just verbally).

ConsGood/hard work is rarely rewarded financially. Sometimes the company cares waaaay too much about the bottom line, and not the quality of respect due to employees. Seems like the holding company has a little too much power over the company, considering it was highly rewarded and performed up to par in the given times.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop letting the holding company pull the purse strings. You can't fire people and expect those left behind to pick up all the slack and still manage to have some shadow of a life.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
