This will be a great turn around story

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Equipment Depot full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat parent company
Family oriented culture
Good leadership

ConsCommunication is still a problem

Advice to Senior ManagementI feel like if we stay on the path we are on this will be one of the best turn around stories ever. New leadership is really making a difference. It is great to see employees so excited again.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bad upper Management

Anonymous (Current Employee)

I have been working at Equipment Depot

ProsFriendly coworkers and decent health benefits.

ConsUpper Management is loaded with unqualified people. Most are in their positions because of politics and favoritism.

Pay scales are low for anybody outside of management.

Pay scale increases are rare.

Very little chance to advance your career.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart focusing on rewarding employees based on abilities. Provide an atmosphere of career development. Abolish the good old boy club in upper management and work towards placing individual that are qualified.

Terrible Company and Management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Mount Laurel, NJ

I worked at Equipment Depot full-time for more than a year

ProsCo-workers are great, paid on time, and checks never bounced.

ConsManagement is dishonest, will tell you one thing to your face, and another behind your back. This company in the PA region is very much a "good ol' boys" type of company, if you step on the wrong toes, even if you are correct in doing so, you become a target. Management unfairly targets employees (3 in my time with them) to cover their own inadequacies. The morale of the employees is one of fear and caution at all times, and is directly linked to the ever present emails about firing people. Be wary of this company, you can become cannon fodder at any given moment.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease please please for the sake of the people still working in the Mount Laurel branch, take an objective look at the people in management positions, they are (and not from a former upset employee point of view) inadequate, and will continue to drive the branch into the ground. I say I am not disgruntled because 1) I knew it was coming and 2) already had plans in place for what I knew was coming. I just hope that PON starts to take notice of that happenings in the US operation, because if you do not, expect that you will start losing more customers and eventually be forced to close the doors, and put alot of hard working people out of work.
