No longer a good place to work

(Current Employee)
Yonkers, NY

ProsThe staff that does the testing and actually creates the products is dedicated and terrific, if unheralded. Good benefits, though eroding. May still be a reasonable place to work if you're a test engineer or in IT.

ConsZero accountability for some senior managers, a few of whom are lacking in conscience. They have license to do just about anything they want to those below. E.g. They recently fired CR's chief editor without cause, with the blessing of both HR and the CEO. There's widespread fear among day to day staffers that any of them could be next. If this is the kind of place you'd like to work, good luck!

Advice to Senior ManagementBoard of Directors: Get your heads out of the sand and learn the truth about the goings on in the organization by speaking directly with rank and file. Then remove those responsible at the top who have ruined what was once a proud and admirable organization. Restore integrity, honesty, and competence to CR's management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
