Lost its way

Manager (Current Employee)
Yonkers, NY

ProsThe company has a great mission--to inform and protect consumers by providing ratings of products and services and working for a safe marketplace. In general the employees are on board with the mission and feel like they're helping consumers. On-site gym is nice.

ConsIn addition to the endless rounds of layoffs, management does not seem to have a plan going forward to resuscitate the business. Laying off people will not solve the problem--you need to add other revenue streams.

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

Too… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
