    Not Everyone's cup of tea

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mount Olive, NJ

    ProsVery intelligent senior management whom have a strong knowledge base on the various industries we deal with. Compensation is competitive. Good work/life balance. Excellent opportunities for growth if you're committed and put in the work.

    ConsSenior Management sometimes gives mixed message sometimes. Undermanned in certain areas which poses excess stress on the rest of the team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust in your people

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    You are all in it together

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsJeans day once a month & the keurig machine

    ConsThis is the craziest environment I have ever found myself in. You are punished if you use your vacation time, you are punished if you say the wrong word...you basically walk around like a scared puppy dog hoping that you don't get fired. However, usually, if you are getting fired, the whole office will know before you do. Most likely you will get a call the night beforehand. That is how unethical this company is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate an actual management team who are able and willing to manage properly and provide advise and direction to their employees. Right now it is "a sea of people running from Tsunami's!" If you work here....you understand what we deal with... Also, the function of the BCC should be removed from Outlook. If you want to tell somebody something, then tell them. Don't try to email one individual and BCC the other 50....they will find out...doesn't make sense.

    Unorganized and lack of Vision for the Future

    Professional (Former Employee) Mount Olive, NJ

    ProsOffice Culture is Asian with respect the main concern. Employees are respectful to each other thru the guidance of leadership. Small company mentality with big ideas, but no vision on how to execute.

    ConsOffice Culture is Asian with respect the main concern, but little to no respect for Employees. Great coworkers, but everyone is fearful. No trust in the employees or their abilities. Warehouse is disorganized and has questionable safety issues. No break room or area to eat lunch. Vacation is discouraged and non flex time makes it difficult for working parents. Human Resources is nonexistent only grievances are to Senior Management which are the problem.
    Small niche company feeling the growing pains. In order to achieve next level need to make aggressive changes are stay small.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire an consulting firm to reorganize the structure and to investigate warehouse safety. As the company expands they need to invest in better systems and infrastructure. They have small problems, but if they decide to grow these problems with become explosive. Management lack of communication about future plans and direction leave employees confused and uncertain about Tronex.

    Do not work here unless you are desperate.

    Analyst (Former Employee) Mount Olive, NJ

    ProsI don't know that there are any Pros.

    ConsExpectations from management are vague at best. There is next to zero direction with high expectations. There is a certain element of fear the employees have of management. This is by design. The culture is very negative and driven by how the company is perceived by the world outside. The company has very high turnover and is not concerned by it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake some classes on effective leadership.

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

    Lousy Company with innocent employees

    Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsJeans day on Friday and gets lunch break.
    Once a while everybody gets the chance to stand in the line to applause and praise the great leader. Ridiculous. Eye open experience.

    ConsThey are so proud of being minority owned American company. But it's actually Chinese owned company. I have no words to this company simply run by fear in less than 6 months. Please read all the review above except the first one, they had marketing people to write the first review.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement were made by default through growth of company, lack leadership skills at all. President is indecisive and a bossy lady runs the company that leads the fail.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A ridiculous business with a ridiculous niche market.

    Analyst (Former Employee) Budd Lake, NJ

    ProsYou get a lunch break.

    ConsIt appears Management cares more about demanding respect and making employees walk on eggshells than the actual business itself. They are trying to get off by being an Asian owned company. That is what they are so proud of for some reason. They go to ridiculous levels of controlling everything from communication to how a tie is tied. They are too concerned about what the outside thinks of their company. It is a sink or swim mentality with no training. Never seen anything like this before. There are many more Cons. If you get a call from a recruiter about this company. Proceed with extreme caution.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoesn't matter, they won't listen.

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

    Fast paced is one thing - chaos is the reality

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mount Olive, NJ

    ProsCustomer focus
    Dedicated employees who truly desire to do the right thing

    ConsCondescending leadership, give lip service to an open, collaborative environment when in reality new ideas are discouraged, and employees berated and beaten down.
    Highly controlled and distrustful environment.
    Extremely high turnover

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo point in sharing anything - it won't be heard.

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

    Eye opening experience into the human ego, self centered executives.

    Business Development Coordinator (Former Employee) Budd Lake, NJ

    ProsGet experience working in an Asian business culture

    ConsManagement were made by default through growth of company, lack leadership skills. Very disrespectful and egotistical owners, break down employee's confidence, undermine ability, and test patience and temperament to maintain control.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive clear and decisive instructions and trust things will get done correctly, reward by not undermining ability and intelligence. Don't believe that a management titles fool subordinates into believing leaderships skills are present or effective in any way.

    Fast-paced Small Business that offers personal and professional growth

    Marketing Analyst (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsThe top management are always open to listening about any concerns and no one is too busy to listen. The environment is conducive to productivity and the employees are above average in skills and competency yet are not cocky. There is no micromanaging and individuals are able to be as creative as they would like and explore new opportunities and concepts that might not have been seen by management.

    ConsThe pace of work is extremely fast and some people might not be able to keep up. There is a high demand for excellence and precision which can be stressful. Do not work here if you are not interested in a long term career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI wholeheartedly support the way Tronex leadership runs "the ship" and believe they care about their employees more than the average employers would. They go out of their way to see how you're doing outside of work and actually get to know who you are. Yes, a company exists where the President treats every employee including warehouse staff equally.

    Very fast-paced environment; leadership severely lacking respect and professionalism

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany is fast-paced and can teach you a few things if you're patient and look carefully for the signs. Employees are very kind and helpful.

    ConsCompany is run based on what the "outside" might think, therefore management takes very unnecessary measures to ensure a strict and uncomfortable environment . Leadership is unprofessional and in many ways, limited on actual experience. Employees are basically run by fear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTraining. Leadership needs to dump the theory of sink or swim and realize that this is a very ineffective, inefficient and costly way to run a business. Company needs to close its doors to old fashioned ideologies.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
