It's a typical corporation who doesn't seem to value their employees.

Pros

The work/life balance is pretty great. There is generally a great opportunity for travel because they're an international company.

Cons

Huge disconnect between local branches and headquarters, you get the feel of that "stereotypical corporate culture". It doesn't seem like a company you could grow passionate for. Upper-level staff seems to look down on lower-level staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a better communication flow between staff and senior management.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here would be the discounts on merchandise.

    Cons

    Management is not all that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to learn how to treat people. They have a really high turnover rate here.

    Should have had a bed available, because I practically lived there.

    Pros

    GREAT people!! Wow... can't tell you what a group of talented people that are there. Unfortunately, it goes unnoticed. This is truely their only asset...

    Cons

    There are not enough people working there - as a manager, I had so many things to do that things were getting done half-a**ed. I hate working and not making something great... just good enough.

    I would have loved to do a much better job, but since I was working about 60 hours a week (on a good week), I just couldn't.

    When the company was in NJ, there were 300 people, not there are about 50 - and a great work load.

    DONT EVER SPEND YOUR OWN MONEY TO PURCHASE THINGS!! Just an FYI from experience, I was asked to purchase things, but because we are so overworked, I didn't submit the expense for as soon as they would have hoped... and because of it, I was out over 1k! Others never spent thier own money - and if you apply to this company, make this your rule too! Put yourself first. always because you will be taken advantage of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIRE MORE PEOPLE! You can't expect to lay off 300 people and hire 50 to replace them.
