    Pros

    - World renown brand name with strong reputation for your résumé
    - Lean organization with very hands-on approach; allows employees to really learn and hone their skills as they work
    - Excellent Central Jersey location; great for serious employees not looking to travel to NYC
    - Standard working hours plus summer schedule
    - Employee discount

    Cons

    - Upper management takes advantage of the work-life balance the location affords; low pay for industry
    - No promotion from within; to get a 'industry-aligned' pay increase, you have to leave
    - When key team members leave, their work is divided amongst remaining members, not a replacement hire

    Advice to Management

    You are a powerhouse brand within the industry. Treat your employees as such. Institute career tracking, work with employees to develop their skills and you will retain the top talent you helped create (that you are losing to competitors)

  2. In a state of progress, getting better

    Pros

    Waterford Wedgwood was a good place to work. The management kept us as informed as possible. Employees were valued as people, not just as cogs in the wheel. While pay was not exceptional, I was happy working there since I was always treated fairly.

    Cons

    The greatest challenge was always financial in nature. Product was often not available in a timely fashion or prices had to be increased to a level that was too prohibitive to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    The executives that I had access to were all very talented and doing their absolute best to make the company successful. Unfortunately there were too many factors that could not be rectified and ultimately capsized the retail portion of the company.

    Nice colleagues, 9 - 5 is acceptable, everyone was genuinely working hard.

    Cons

    No visibility of senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Initiatives need to be enforced and aligned from the top, otherwise changes will not happen.

  6. It is run by a capital funding company who could careless about its people and only care about making their big bonus'

    Pros

    The product and the people who have worked hard to put Waterford and Wedgwood products to the market

    Cons

    KPS Capital Fundings values regarding people and their human resources philosophy

    Advice to Management

    It appears the only thing that is important is making the bottom line look good so they can sell the company
