    Pros

    fast paced environment with decent benefits. Good place for people starting out there career

    Cons

    culture of blame exists in the workplace. When things go wrong, they look to blame instead of finding a way to fix the issue.

    Pros

    There are great people here and the office is fun.

    Cons

    Nepotism and the old boys club runs rampant. If you are one of the chosen few, you can get away with anything and are allowed to punish and retaliate at will. Nothing will ever get done. If HR and management actually do eventually take action, it’s a year later. It’s a complete joke. If you’re female, don’t bother to try to get senior marketing officials to listen to you.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your toxic middle managers. Empower HR and managers to terminate toxic employees faster.

    Pros

    Benefits and wellness programs, volunteering opportunities!

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Need to start promoting within the company instead of offering higher positions to outsiders first. Focus more on the positive things about people instead of just the negative.

    Advice to Management

    Train management all around to include HR skills

    Pros

    None, it’s all a bunch of lies

    Cons

    It’s an old boys and girls club. Unless you have a family member in upper management forget having any future there. I’ve never seen such extreme favoritism in my life, they refuse to update their systems yet if there’s any discrepancy they will 100% blame it on you. Their work-life balance is a joke, even after putting your heart and soul into your work they’ll turn around one day and decide to fire you for any excuse they can come up with. No formal training, they run on a sink or swim mentality. Only way to succeed is to throw coworkers under the bus. God forbid that you’re human and make a mistake, forget ever being able to redeem yourself they’ll start a paper trail and your days there are numbered. The biggest red flag was seeing employees who had been there for years on end randomly terminated for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and be loyal to those who are loyal to you.

    Pros

    The fact that we have a HR rep for our division.

    Cons

    HR is useless, unprofessional and unapproachable, close door. Does not follow up, not accessible, not objective and is supervised by mgt. The result is no corrective action for mgt., they are allowed to bring down morale, push out good employees and hold employees back. They only look out for themselves and not the company or employees. Mgt is allowed to bully and belittle employees without recourse. Pro-management, suppose to be neutral.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional in your job title in human relations to employees. Have less turnover of HR representatives. Outsource this position to individuals that can be objective and involved in fair hiring practices, training and coaching staff. Inexperienced professional mtg., provide more people training for mgt. Mgt does not have basic people skills when dealing with employees, ex. confidentiality, intimidation and don't have strong technical skills.
