think twice before accepting a position here

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Stamford, CT

Prosconvenient location, thats all i got

ConsVERY DISORGANZIED and poorly managed. people in management positions tend to be inexperienced and unqualified. promotions are based on personal relationships as opposed to merit. expectations during sales (which are all the time) are ridiculous. workloads and workflows in general are not well thought out. once in a dept your are "stuck" in that dept. there is no career path or growth opportunity. there is no promotion from within though there is nonstop boasting about it during the interview process.i equate this experience to highschool popularity contest...not an actual career with advancement opportunity and room for growth.

Advice to Senior Managementhire new managers who actually have experience managing PEOPLE. before making changes to process, you may want to consider how the process actually works by enlisting input of those who actually do the job; develop and maintain a REAL training program. actually aknowledge and recognize the hardwork and extra hours (without overtime or being asked) that employees put in. stop acting like this is highschool and maintain a professional atmosphere.

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