Pros

Excellent fringe benefits. Ability to go where you want within the company.

Cons

Poor company cohesivness. Poor selection of supervisors/managers that have little to no clue how to run the operation.

Advice to Management

If they place a high emphasis not just on experience but education when hiring managers it would do them a lot of good. Also they need to learn that putting someone in a management position with little to no experience and expecting them to make everyone happy is not going to happen. They need to hire managers, not go out and find people to fill the role of a manager.

    Pros

    Flight benefits and the ease of the commute to the headquarters in Forest Hills. You're reverse commuting so it's never a packed train. Sweet. A distant third is that people like the brand so it's easy to be proud of where you work.

    Cons

    The company is not disciplined and therefore promoted a lot of people early on and has since just stopped promoting. Period. Especially in the non-operational support areas. There is no middle management in many departments and a promotion from coordinator to Director does not seem realistic.

    Advice to Management

    Put the right people in the right jobs and get the wrong people off the bus already. This company has too many people who either don't know what they're doing, don't do it right, or just make their job harder than it really needs to be. Just because it's a young company does not mean we all have to be territorial and stake our claim. In fact, it should be quite the opposite.
