    Enabling individuals to grow personally and professionally means the company will do the same. A rising tide...

    Marketing (Current Employee) Somerset, NJ

    ProsPrivately-owned by an owner/CEO that works harder than you do, SHI plans for the long-term and not quarter-to-quarter. Ideas are welcome and new positions are constantly created to fulfill those ideas and deliver ever-improving products to our customers. This company is also: young, fun, constantly growing, a $5 billion org that considers itself an underdog.

    ConsIf you need someone to tell you how to do your job every day you come to work, this place is not for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNever forget what I wrote above about the underdog.
