  1. Coworkers are great. Discordant environment requires change.

    Pros

    Local to Long Island. Hands on training can lead to promotion. Accessibility to the warehouse allows greater comprehension of the flow of production and shipping. CEO walks the floor and is available for questions and feedback.

    Cons

    Unorganized decisions by managers, salespersons and consultants leading to projects done on a whim without input of those involved prior to execution, thus creating chaos and a discordant work environment. This also leads to potential customer service issues with clients when due dates cannot be met.

    Advice to Management

    Refrain from hiring or better prepare consultants unfamiliar with the occupation. Evaluate projects with all persons involved for better execution.


  2. Horrible Management. You cannot ask for help or the supervisors give you an attitude. You cannot socialize.

    Pros

    Experience. Health/Dental/Vision Insurance available. Good vacation/sick PTO. Variety of shifts/scheduling available.

    Cons

    "mandatory" Overtime...you are worked to death. They know their busy times of year yet refuse to hire enough people, so everyone is overworked and underpaid. No raises or good incentives. No room for growth or upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people during busier months! Seasonal/temp or even interns!

    Respect your employees and appreciate them while they're there. Don't wait until they put in their 2 weeks notice to tell them how great they are.

    There is excellent talent in the creative, merchandising and marketing departments. Great to work with and new ideas are encouraged. Management always looking for new approaches, creativity is appreciated.

    Can be fast-paced – more communication would help.

    Pros

    Some of the staff ( the ones being abused) are great people! They unfortunately are stuck at this miserable poorly managed company due to the bad economy.

    Cons

    If I could rate this company a minus 5 stars I would. Where to begin- management is a bunch of lying thieves. They look for unintelligent brown-noses to promote to supervisor positions. These people couldn't survive in a real company. The Customer Service and Sales Department is a joke. In CS they treat the reps like garbage screaming at them even while customers are on the phone. The Sales Dept has deceiving individuals always trying to take earned commissions away. These people truly have issues! The management promises the world but are compulsive liars! This company cuts corners to fatten their wallets at the employees expense.

    Advice to Management

    Do everyone a favor and fire yourself!!!

    Pros

    None to speak of at all

    Cons

    There are way to many to list I would waste my day writing them down, but I short list , disorganized, wasteful spending, the keep the owner in the dark at all costs. There bullies with Spanish immigrants who work there. The building is just a mess work conditions are horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to tell the owner nelson to open his eyes or sell.

    Pros

    There are none. I cannot think of one positive thing to say about this company. Stay away at all costs.

    Cons

    This is the most disfunctional organization imaginable. It is completely void of any leadership. If the alternative to working here is unemployment, choose unemplyment.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the business.
