Pros

Talented people, fun brands, good products

Cons

Senior management is does not allow people to have flex time, makes people feel guilty about taking vacation and sick days, and expects its employees to work far more than 40 hours/week. Though low salaries are billed as the trade-off for family flexibility, that is not in fact the case. Further, many senior managers do not allow the people that report to them to shine.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior managers need to work harder to allow employees to have more flex time; if the work is getting done, vacation time shouldn't be a problem; nor should face time.

    Pros

    Good benefits. My department pays well. My department has flexible hours.

    Cons

    We have mandatory overtime to make our money instead of a nice raise each year. Deadlines have to be met but we have to make up the time because of other departments being late. Working with the NY side of our business is not a pleasure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share what is going on in the company. We know when something is up...just go ahead and tell us. We can tell when you keeping secrets.
