    Current Employee - Office Manager in Cherry Hill, NJ

    I have been working at Puratos full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work here is the free bread and product tastings.

    Cons

    Poor management. There is a cultural disconnect between foreign management and native residents.
    Poor and very stressful work environment due to lack of defined process and procedure.
    A lot of bad attitudes which stem from poor leadership and mistrust. Everyone is a little shady and out to stab the next person in the back.
    Lots of responsibility for very low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should take the time to try and understand what is really going on in their departments and look beyond what they see.

    I worked at Puratos full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, good reputation with customers who pay a premium for quality products, world leader but very small in the USA

    Cons

    Long hours, not enough support staff, sr. management doesn't have a clue about running a company in the USA, no advancement opportunities unless you're Belgian, high turnover - a lot of good employees have left in past couple of years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what kind of company you want to be in the USA and send the expats back to Belgium - Americans can do the job!

    I have been working at Puratos full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere with a strong culture that can be felt from head office.
    Very nice group of people to work with, which makes going to work enjoyable.

    Cons

    Unionized environment really adds a lot of red tape to many business decisions.
    There is very few career opportunities that are provided by management which leads to employees leaving after two years. This company is essentially a farming ground for larger companies who can afford to pay more and have better career opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a clear career path to new employees, or hire an older workforce that does not mind staying in one position until retirement.
