If you like change, this is the place for you

Marketing Associate (Current Employee)
Danvers, MA

ProsExcellent people, Danvers is convenient to 128 and flex time is available. Managers are not time clock micro-managers, if you have an appointment or sick child, they are very understanding. Working at home is also an option. Many training programs available and opportunities to learn.

ConsContinuous reorganizations and severance programs create loss of experienced personnel, which in turn causes one person to do the job of three. Owned by German company that does not value or appreciate American work ethics. Jobs are posted when they are actually already promised to a department "favorite" or current employee's offspring. "Old Boys Club" and favoritism runs rampant.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate one game plan and stick to it, give it a chance to work before pulling the plug. Communicate to lower levels and stop with the favoritism.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
