    Pros

    Fairly young and progressive culture where things can get done fairly quickly without a lot of red tape. Open office environment makes it a more fun place to work. Company makes money and has good compensation. Flexible on work location.

    Cons

    Hmmm, actually I can't really think of many negatives. I mean no company is perfect and they all have their flaws, but nothing that stands out to me. They do stretch their people a little thin.

    Advice to Management

    Continue treating the associates well and focusing on engagement, and they will follow you.

    Pros

    - Open office environment. Everyone is approachable and accessible. - Great products that consumers are passionate about. - Track record of breakthrough advertising and thought leadership on marketing best practices. - Numerous opportunities for marketing training - Regular rotations between different types of brand roles.

    Cons

    - Like most CPG firms, processes can be slow. Not able to quickly react to marketplace considerations. - Pay seems to trend below industry average, though bonus payouts can be significant - Hackettstown location (but most associates work from home one day/week, and many car pool from NYC or Morristown)
