I have advanced through several HQ and field based positions and experienced a good amount of success here.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Whippany, NJ

ProsDon't typically push anyone out. If you want, you can spend you entire career here.
The new CEO seems energetic, with good ideas, and a long term vision.

ConsTo call them austere would minimize it. Extremely bottom line focused, at the expense of long-term growth.
Passive aggressive culture. People are very nice superficially, but don't reveal their true motives.
Very bureaucratic and slow decision making.
It's not what you do or accomplish, it is who advocates for you. It's about who management is comfortable with, not who is most qualified.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake promotions based on merit, not who is liked more or more well connected.
Set up on boarding for all new employees, both internal and external hires.
Focus more on the long term, not the short term.
Provide more transparent career and succession planning.
Promote strategists and people who have accomplished, not "potential".
Spend for the long term instead of bleeding assets for every penny of profit.

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