Corporate office nightmare

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Egg Harbor Township, NJ
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Egg Harbor Township, NJ

I have been working at Spencer Gifts

Pros

* Very relaxed dress code.
* Great opportunity to a slacker who just wants to collect a paycheck.
* No real leadership to discipline those who do not do what they are supposed to do.

Cons

* No career progression/promotions available.
* Work not recognized; often told they could hire someone off the street to do my job.
* Consistently left out on an island to plan, organize and execute a high priority project, while upper management would be working from home.
* Employees not respected.
* Pay was unrealistic with industry standards.
* Turnover in the corporate office is ridiculous.
* More directors/vice presidents then real time workers (more chiefs not enough Indians)
* Upper management did not have the technical abilities to make technical decisions; alot of programs used were new in 1980.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A real hard look with the upper management needs to be done.
