    Current Employee - Finance Manager in Wayne, NJ
    Current Employee - Finance Manager in Wayne, NJ
    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - People are overall pleasant & friendly - Hours are generally good (40 hours/wk) - Management does take the time to communicate company development quarterly - Management is committed to improving the business

    Cons

    - Bonus incentive is nominal and is tied to company & international performance which makes it hard to really motivate - Promotions can take a long time; Lateral moves are encouraged and more frequent but the company policy is not to give pay increases for lateral moves - Company overly focuses on bringing in MBAs - it's a core requirement, but any MBA from any school is fine. Quality of education is irrelevant for this company, you just need the degree. This leads to a VERY wide range of talent all at the same title - Too many test initiatives + analysts who don't know how to interpret data properly -No tuition reimbursement -HMO healthplan is affordable, but POS plan is very expensive, especially for a family.

    Advice to Management

    Need more stratification in the titles; (At this company, a person one year out of college can be a Senior Analyst, and so can someone w/ 10 years of experience from an Ivy League school)

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Auburn, MA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Meet a lot of guests, you get your hours, but ive heard it stops after christmas. knowledge of products, and you can wear earrings.

    Cons

    minimum pay wage, there are only raises after 1 year and if you meet quota at cash registers, as in bpp's, loyalty, etc etc. even if you get a raise you get no more than 30 cents i heard. But we will see, im devoted to the company.

    Advice to Management

    apply bonuses to associates, and better raises at the end of the year, to keep us motivated to working. i think after a year there should be atleast a 50 cent raise.
