Great place to start out (and then move on), super corporate.

Production Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsGood work/life balance.
Mgmt and culture vary by division, but overall a sometimes fun, sometimes dull work environment. Mgmt can be very supportive and encouraging in letting associates take on new projects/tasks.
Great training and learning opportunities for entry level.

ConsTakes forever to get raises and promotions. Previously had a culture of bringing in outsiders to fill positions instead of promoting from within. Getting somewhat better at this.
Company is under new ownership, so a big re-org is going on. Layoffs will continue until it's finished.
The job can get somewhat prefunctory, so many depts and everyone focuses on their silo.
Salary, vacation, benefits are pretty average.
HR Dept is worthless.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate more incentives for retaining talent. Cut out the fat paychecks at the top level. Hire better leaders!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
