Manager (Former Employee), Franklin, NJ – June 14, 2013
Pros: company store, nice name on your resume
Cons: long hours, bad managers, limited career growth
I would not recommend to anyone to join this company if you value weekends, evenings and nights. The manufacturing environment is highly stressful with very long hours. Management was incompetent and rude in my case. Turnover is ridiculously high with many departments having all new people fresh out of college.
Some other locations have decent managers – more... and better work-life balance, but it really is hit or miss.
In terms of career growth there is not a good succession planning in place. Movements across division and functions are limited and as far as I have seen it is much more likely to be fired than to be promoted.
