    Former Employee - Accounting and Sales in Parsippany, NJ

    I worked at Jodhpuri as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a college student, Jodhpuri allowed me to do so many different things. I worked in the accounting office and was also able to participate in sales and marketing. Learned a lot of skills that other companies could not offer. Company was flexible with hours.

    Cons

    President and VP are not on the same page. The VP would give me a task and sometimes the President told me not to do that. It was confusing. Senior employees were not always happy to train interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ask each employee what they are doing everyday. Give them weekly duties and follow up with them at the end of the week.

    I have been working at Jodhpuri as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As an intern in such a small company, you get to do lots and interact with all the employees. You do things like create product presentations, invoice orders, make sales calls, fill out vendor applications, attend meetings, etc.
    -Great products and use of product differentiation
    -One of the first companies to introduce Reed Diffusers
    -One of a kind products like Potpourri Filled Lanterns, Potpourri Filled Wire Forms, unique Moscow Mule Mugs
    -VP (Sheila ) is a well versed business woman: business savvy, always trendy, great saleswoman with an impeccable memory
    -Employees are a family with the common goal of expanding Jodhpuri
    -Decent pay
    -Company is very flexible with college students' schedules
    -Great college internship

    Cons

    -Too much micromanaging
    -Need a bigger facility. Samples are scattered throughout employees' desks and in the conference room

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Company Management is inconsistent (For instance, one day you could be told to work with another employee to help them with their work, then the next day you two will be given a lecture on how inefficient it is to have 2 people working on the same job)
    -Company President micromanages: President asks EACH employee what they are working on every few HOURS. As a company president he should not have that much involvement in employees' work
    -Improve on common goals btwn President & VP.

    Micromanagement by upper management (owners). You need permission to make any decision regarding any function of work.

    Low Pay.
    Unusually high turnover or all positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for quality people and a general management. Get rid of personnel who are not in the company to work or help company grow. Need enthusiastic people.
