Solid company; Good place to start your career

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsProvides its associates with a great work/life balance, good benefits, and a friendly work environment. It is a large company, so there are many opportunities to move into.

ConsUpper management is weak and does not care to develop its employees. Some people linger in their jobs because they have held it for so many years. Incompetence is ignored at a certain level with work just re-allocated to those that are more competent, allowing some people to unfairly get paid for doing little to no work.

The company is also very interested in their bottom line, leading to a lot of offshoring, instability, and constant restructuring within the organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in developing your employees rather than cutting costs at every turn and ignoring weak leadership. You are losing a lot of good people that once made this company stable, a pleasure to work for and who made this company a leading competitor in the market.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
