    I have been working at Cerberus Capital Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good salary, ok bonus programs. Good recognition of top notch sales people with trips for rewards. Benefits were great with AT&T, not sure how they will change with Cerberus. Three weeks off each year (personal/vacation) and good tuition reimbursement programs.

    Cons

    No benefits for retired employees, no 401K available as of right now, and only 4-5 pd holidays each year. Bonus changed recently from being obtainable to being very difficult to obtain. It is still doable, just expecting more work for less money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bonuses feasible so employees have an obtainable goal. Otherwise, looking forward to even more progress.

    Some people there are actually very smart. You're very lucky if you actually get to work with them.

    Smart people, diversified and interesting work. Compensation structure is fair to generous, sufficient numbers of staff at all levels to meet demanding workload of all departments

    I have been working at Cerberus Capital Management full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tenure associates have good health benefits, medical, vison and dental for family even for part time associates. 401k retirement as well.

    Cons

    Management from store directors, district mgrs to top management treat the supervisory mgrs and the labors with disrespect no regard for their human life.
    More worker's and hours are needed to accomplish the unreasonable daily tasks.
    It is not human nature for one to work at their max on a daily basis. This can be very debilitating after time. Supervisory managers are treated like slaves. Constant treat of losing ones job. Must be available 24/7. Evening on one's day off as well as Vacation time. Job doesn't pay enough we're not six figure office mgrs. We do the grunt work. No time to manage the impossible. So please do sell sell us you're horrible to work for worse than svu.

    Advice to Management

    STOP you're ABUSE Bully ING management
    Style. From store mgrs, district managers up. We are human beings.
