    Pros

    Their products are well known, 401K plan, good for people that wants a place where they can make the time to retire.

    Cons

    It is a shame that in order to make money Upper management have managers setting up employees to get them fired, so they do not have to pay any benefits stated by law. There is a lot of bulling, discrimination, harassment and intimidation from managers to employees in NJ.
    If you are young, smart and want to build a career, do not apply until they have a new and better management culture.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in management training and education about how to take care of their employees, and the legal implications of their poor, and low behavior; that would probably bring more profits to the company than using intimidation and setting them up to get them fired. Conair could be a great company to work for if these issues are resolved and taking care of. You have some great employees, and some great talented people leaving. May be you should ask 'what can we do better as a company?' and 'why are employees leaving?' Do not only listen to your managers, listen to your employees as well, and the true will come up, so can take corrective actions.
