    I worked at Jarden full-time

    Pros

    Forward thinking, taking safety to high tech advancements. Fast paced and creative. Illinois based company with engineering and marketing in same building located in Aurora, I
    Illinois.

    Cons

    Need to be able to change hats sometimes on a weekly basis. Priorities do change consistently as technology changes but that is the state of business in general today. Marketing and engineering do not typically see eye to eye but are respectful. Show your worth asap or you will be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Easy to lose some perspective of your product when the bottom line is the number one priority. When you manufacture life safety products the bottom line and the quality of your products have to have equal importance.
