Advice to Management

The best advice I can give is to listen to your employees need to advance within the company. It may not always be best for them or for the department to grant it, but when you lend an ear to their desires they will be better employees for, because they will feel valued, appreciated, and heard.

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people "in the trenches" for this company.
    The benefits package is nice.

    Cons

    First of all, they are NOTHING like they seem. Brainwashed individuals toiling for less than can be had elsewhere, nepotism abounds. If you are not one of the New York natives that expanded to new areas with the company, don't plan on being promoted. As with most companies, how much money can be made is the only concern. This is a company that does not care about their employees, no matter what they say, and that Top 100 Companies to Work For rating is a farce. Many have suggested that they "buy" that rating, and after being inside the company I would have to agree. There are a lot of underhanded things going on that far exceed normal "workplace politics".

    You've been warned.

    Advice to Management

    Might be time to reinvent the wheel.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Clean, upbeat environment, positive customer-friendly culture, efficiently managed, opportunities to advance, always new things happening, such as product demos, events.

    Cons

    Low pay (even if competitive), mindlessly repetitive tasks, lots of pressure to be upbeat despite the fact you are working in a menial, low-paying job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more, treat them less like production machines. Paying competitive wages isn't enough if those wages aren't fair to begin with.
