Pros

The company is very savvy at selecting great products and great people in the marketing department. The atmosphere is friendly and focused on the work. Pay is somewhat above average but in line with NYC location. Incentive compensation (options, restricted stock) can be very rewarding if you stay long term.

Cons

Management does not allow a lot of new thinking and essentially is stuck in the past. This is the main problem at an otherwise solid company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower executive directors and other middle brand management to really own their businesses and make decisions on their own.

    Pros

    Pay is level with industry. You do get more vacations for more years of service. Paid lunch time. Usually no overtime.

    Cons

    Unless you enjoy your job function, you can be bored here, as the company culture is lacking spirit and fun. Pay is not so great considering the location (minutes from NYC where everything is expensive). Parking is expensive and not provided by company. No gym. Workload used to be very reasonable, but has doubled in recent years due to pressure of patent expiration. Depends on managers and groups, you may or may not be valued as an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve company culture to boost morale.

    Management and the inconsistency they allow and foster. Not top management, middle management.
