Current Employee - Vice President in Long Island City, NY

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

The vacation allowance is unmatched.

Cons

Politics, lack of ownership, inefficient use of time and resources, not smart when it comes to knowing who the customer is, mass marketing, no challenge, you are just a big cog in a big wheel. Can't accomplish anything because of the multiple levels you have to go through and the lack of capable technology.

Advice to Management

Give regular constructive feedback throughout the year. Stop treating your employees like children - this whole VOE thing really has gotten out of hand. We spend more time trying to make people feel good than getting things done. I'm an adult. I don't need cakes and prizes, etc. I need trust and guidance.
