Working in a Machine

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsGood people to work with
Good mix of co-workers
One of the leaders in the industry
Personally had a great relationship with management, but wasn't always the case with all workers

ConsManagement treats sales people better than support staff
With new management, they brought all of their people in from a previously failed business
Still paying former employees salaries while the workers are getting pay cuts and furloughs
Little room for advancement, and none if you do not constantly ask for it with a reason to why you should move up and to what position
Very few people have gotten any sort of raise or increase in compensation over the past 2+ years

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like you care about them. It's more than just matching 401K or letting people take loans from it. Everyone took a big hit with the economy, but the scale wasn't completely fair in terms of paycuts. Show the office that you took a bigger hit than they did because bottom line ends with management. It's not the sales assistants fault the company made bad decisions, so why punish them more than yourself? The 5-10% of their salary is a much bigger deal then the 10-15% of yours. Create initiatives and incentives for people to actually make more for doing a good job. People are leaving for more money elsewhere and to work for better companies. Make everyone feel wanted and needed rather than just a cog in the machine.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
