    Unfriendly and Depressing

    Human Resources Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Edison, NJ

    ProsI was given a good position and good pay (even though it was through a temp agency), and the job title was above what I was expecting.

    ConsThe people are unfriendly to newcomers, and the working environment is just depressing. People really don't like their jobs and there's a high turnover rate. Even though everyone's hours are supposedly 9-5, people were late all the time and left early. My first day, no one knew that I was starting, and one person thought I was just interviewing. My boss had a family emergency but no one bothered to tell me so I was just sitting around all day.
    The rest of the team was rude and unwelcoming, and they feigned interest only to take advantage of me later. When I shared my ideas with an individual, they took credit for them at the next staff meeting. Overall, it's just an unhappy and toxic place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a thorough sweep of the departments and weed out everybody that causes such a negative atmosphere.

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