Slightly disorganised but fun work place.
Belkin EMEA Macrom Intern (Former Employee) –  Gemeente Amsterdam20 January 2018
Fun but slightly disorganised work place. The people are nice and the products are mostly interesting to work with. The location was easy to get to. The managers were relatively flexible as long as work was completed.

Horrible team lead
Refurbisher (Former Employee) –  Plainfield, IN17 January 2018
I worked there for a matter of 2 months and it's just a constant cycle in the refurbished Department on the lack of communication skills with the team leader she does not know how to communicate with her employees instead goes and gets the supervisor if there is trouble I never cause trouble myself just watching it from a distance and even going to human resources. I really enjoyed the people that I worked with but I just could not deal with the team lead anymore it was causing a lot of drama in the department when really it's a cool laid-back place to work other than that
Pros
People I worked with
Cons
Management there is no communication

Technical Support Supervisor, ASEAN (Former Employee) –  Singapore16 January 2018
A US MNC that is really a work life balance workplace. The Management as well as the company itself are people, employee and customer focus that will always listen to all comments and execute action. A very nice working environment

No work life balance
Global Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Playa Vista, CA15 August 2017
Typical workday is never typical, it changes from day to day and from hour to hour.

When emails arrive, at all hours of the day/night/weekend/vacation, you are expected to respond. Not respond is frowned upon and you will be called out by your supervisor in front of others for not answering in a timely response or at all.

Workplace culture can be argumentative, even confrontational. This "tear you down mentality" is tolerated and one particular manager lives by this and prides themselves in this.

The amount of work does not equal a fair salary. To say that this company believes in work life balance is a false statement.
Pros
N/a
Cons
Lack of leadership support - no training provided, more of a sink or swim mentality

Could be even Better if they wanted
Senior Corporate Trainer (Former Employee) –  Compton, CA4 August 2017
This has been my home for a long time. However, recent changes have made this place less than a friendly environment. A lot of top management are now leaving, and it is causing concern. The product is amazing, and top grade, awesome quality. I am a fan of the product. its just some of the people behind the curtain make it frustrating.
Pros
great product
Cons
the people

Standard DC Job
Operations Analyst (Former Employee) –  Plainfield, IN9 July 2016
Good job to learn operations in a DC but no upward mobility unless you are willing to wait for people above you to leave or retire.

Worst company I ever been to.
Supply (Former Employee) –  Playa17 October 2014
The mgmt is so unorganized who don't have any plan on anything. They would hire you and let u go in several months bc of sales decline to just make their balance sheet better. So no job security at all. People are horrible, mean and full of attitude. Suppliers HATE them. Don't work for this company!
Pros
No
