    Management is awful

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe sales associates were great and the money could be lucrative

    ConsManagement is disrespectful and has no idea what they are doing. Training is a joke and sales is on call 24-7

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees with respect.... Create a real training program and get on the same page.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If run properly could have been a great company.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Red Bank, NJ (US)

    ProsChance to work with some good people. Good location.

    ConsWhen things were good senior management all bought expensive cars and we're living large. None of that trickled down. Horrific pay and benefits. Many people have been there their entire careers and would be lost if they ever had to work somewhere else. I actually feel bad for some that feel trapped because of the good location.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior Management is the problem

    Management (Former Employee) Red Bank, NJ (US)

    ProsSometimes innovative if the CEO wants to pursue a new fad or technology.

    ConsLets get the obvious out of the way. Not a good idea to seek work in a depressed industry. And It becomes a really bad decision if you choose a poorly managed company like this one.
    Senior Management is the real problem here with very inconsistent communication, strategy and execution. Even given low marks in Builder Magazine by their peers.
    In spite of the representations by HR and hiring managers, policies and procedures are not adhered to, career path depends on favoritism and results are achieved through bullying and partiality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWon't ever happen but need to replace the CEO.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If this is your next career move, you'll want to seriously reconsider...

    Project Specialist (Former Employee) Red Bank, NJ (US)

    ProsIf you're looking for an environment where you can spend all day socializing, playing dirty politics, dealing with bureaucracy, and interacting with the most close-minded, unprofessional, and fake colleagues, then this is the place for you.

    ConsThe work at all levels is not challenging, rote, out-dated, inefficient, and no one wants to change a thing. They claim to be "cutting edge" but it's all talk. The knowledge, experience, and expertise to bring the company into the Millenium does not exist; any attempts to "raise the bar" result in a company-wide collaborate effort to quickly, expel the poor soul. If you've ever read the book "21 Dirty Tricks at Work", everyone at this company is very proficient at the swift application of these tactics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up! All those who you think are dedicated, loyal confidants working tirelessly for the best interest of the company are actually working tirelessly to continue maintaining the major cover-up of costly business mistakes, hiding their incompetencies, and keeping the company stagnant in order to continue racking up on unearned bonuses, coerced promotions, and fabricated accomplishments.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
