    Interesting Group

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMost of my coworkers were extremely intelligent.

    ConsThere seemed to be too much of a insiders club. It was hard to get anything done.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Customer Service Rep. Call Center

    Great place to work

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Newark, NJ

    ProsGreat co-workers. I liked most of my managers. The atmosphere is fairly positive. Decent IT department.

    ConsPay is so-so. Benefits are lousy. Mass transit is a pain because it's a mile from the train station (not fun on a rainy day) and the so-called "light rail" only runs like every 45 minutes or whenever they feel like it. Lots of charming bodegas.

    Advice to Senior Managementmore consistency and team-building

    Excellent work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI learned about Channel management and creative ways you can grow 80% gross margin business.

    ConsPlaying politics within the sales organization was bit challenging especially when turnover was bit high. Not enough time to develop relationships

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time with customers and hire better strategic marketing directors.

    Nice atmosphere and people

    Contractor (Former Employee)
    Coralville, IA

    ProsPeople were friendly and helpful to each other. Was allowed to work independently without micromanaging. Manager responded promptly to any issue I had or request I made.

    ConsPay was very low. Hours weren't ideal. Most available positions are 2nd and 3rd shift. Strong chemical smell in hallway most of the time....needs better ventilation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe as flexible as possible with hours to help parents with kids.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    OK

    Associate (Former Employee)
    Newark, NJ

    Prosnice co-workers and decent work-life balance

    Consemployee health plan is poor
    used to be a lot more fun
    little opportunity for advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's hard to say what they could be doing better. The biggest challenge has been the downturn in the business, which only recently began to recover. It was painful to watch as the company went through round after round of lay-offs.

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

    Somewhat decent company that hires family members of senior management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Newark, NJ

    ProsGood co-workers, very flexible on time and working from home, casual atmosphere, parking garage a block away (big plus), location its ok (a couple of good places to eat near by)

    ConsNo real room for growth, bad pay, horrible benefits (co-pays are high), a lot of senior positions getting paid well for doing nothing (too much of that), really old technology (very poor for a telecoms company), no real sense of direction, no innovative products, dirty facilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring company up to date on work ethics, dress codes (some people just show too much or wear sweat pants to work), trainings to improve work, technology needs a serious overhaul, get rid of so many dead weights that don't do anything (too many).

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