    Pros

    The people on the local level were outstanding to work around. They all were helpful, friendly, and would do anything I asked.

    Cons

    Working in CT for a company based in NJ caused our local associates to be treated with disdain by personnel from the main location.

    Advice to Management

    They should recognize the opportunity to accept the contributions by the local associates to help establish improved methods from an experienced staff

    Pros

    Good pay for what it is, nice to be outside during warm seasons

    Cons

    Dreadfully boring work, even more miserable during the dead of winter. Very unrewarding, unfulfilling job.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing they can really do, the job is what is it.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Capped pay. Micromanagement. Some positions don't offer upward growth.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate younger talent and open discussion for new ways to generate revenue. Need a formal training and on boarding process.

    Pros

    It was a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I never hesitated to ask for help and the other interns felt the same. It was also very informative even though I was a finance major they taught me the engineering side as well so I could fully grasp the business.

    Cons

    It was a very old school type of company. Many of the employees were over 40 and have been there forever. Not alot of room to move up but lots of opportunity to move horizontally. Definitely favoritism at times.

    Pros

    A good day is when I have a productive day at work. I complete all my duties for the day and also spend time with my coworkers and learn something new about them. Diversity is very important and when there are more opinions, a smart decision can be made.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement for people with finance backgrounds though.

    Pros

    The people, the camaraderie, the common goal of better serving our customers. I've been there 4 months and I haven't met one person who's been the least bit of a jerk. Your out of work obligations are understood and not a problem. The most basic effort is appreciated. I love my job.

    Cons

    It's sometimes hard to figure our all the different departments and what everybody does and how you fit in.
