    Overall good company to work for. Needs new management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood people to work with and excellent benefits.

    ConsPay below pay of competitors. Most management horrible at their jobs. Only reason they have jobs in management is good ole boy network.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of most of the management and open advancement opportunities for your excellent employees. You took a great step when you fired the CEO. But why still keep him in a position of power when he about ruined the company? Get rid of the management he put in place they are unqualified.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Bad upper Management

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    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.

    This will be a great turn around story

    Terrible Company and Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Mount Laurel, NJ

    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.
