Pros

- International assignments if you are willing to relocate

Cons

- Almost no opportunities for promotions
- You have to be a "lister" to be even considered for a promotion/manager level position.
- No training given to new hires
- Salaries are differentiated based on your educational qualifications and not your job role. Eg. you could be at the same position as another employee but earning $10k-15k lower than them as they have a higher qualification
- Very political environment
- Managers are not trained to manage/coach people. There isn't much differentiation in the job role of an employee and his manager. So you could be doing exactly the same work as your manager but of course earning lesser.

    Pros

    Big company, lots of opportunity if you are flexible and can move around the world. Great entry level job, but then get out by the time you make it to manager. Nice sustainability agenda.

    Cons

    Zero growth in NJ. Less upper management roles every year. Downsize and restructuring is the norm. Work life balance is poor. Leadership does not deliver. Leadership is encouraging an up or out mentality... meaning if you are not promoted in a couple years, you will be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful what you wish for as you'll be losing a lot of your top talent.

    Pros

    Not too many pros here but the sustainability living plan is amazing, also the agile working and working from home option is great

    Cons

    poor processes improvement strategy, issues are always blamed on people other than actually looking at the process.

    Advice to Management

    Need true supply Chain Managers with People Skills
