    I worked at Hartz Mountain full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well known brand, can bring your pet to work.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, CEO makes ultimate decisions and micromanages everything from Marketing and Sales strategy to employee parking spaces. The culture does not allow management and employees to have input into business strategy and company culture. Japanese leadership keeps trying to recreate their Japanese business model in the U.S. and it is not working. The company continues losing business and good employees. Stay away from the chaos and dysfunction!

    Advice to Management

    Give Management and employees more autonomy and respect their expertise. Have a clear vision for the company's future and communicate it to employees.

    I worked at Hartz Mountain full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive for the industry

    Cons

    Very poor management
    No stability- lots of layoffs
    No culture. People all in fear.
    No sales growth for last 4 years.
    No raises and no bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    For management under the Japanese..stop getting a pay check and leave. You aren't making a difference.
    For the Japanese..stop thinking you can bring your culture here.
