    I worked at Newark Element 14 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job helped me since there were great benefits. I did receive a decent salary. 4 weeks severance. I was glad to finally end it.

    Cons

    Worked with people that had no management experience. Many crude and rude people in North Aurora. Dangerous atmosphere with possible substance abuse issues. Customers were openly mocked. No real performance indicators or goals shared with employees. One month we are told we hit the numbers, the next we are told that we had not, but the projections were met? Poor morale was standard operating procedure. No recourse to appeal to upper-level management. Messy and dirty conditions. Chaotic accounting and IT, constant customer complaints and issues. No contact management! No integration of distribution and service sides of the business. Lay offs and other depressing business decisions sapped morale. Managers would leave in the early afternoon and the employees would stay and work till 5PM or later. Quality was a joke and then non-existant as QC was laid off!

    Advice to Management

    It's too late. You didn't manage the managers.
