    Things are much better here with all the changes at Puritan's . Teams are working together. New leadership is much more approachable and open to new ideas. We actually know that we will get the business going in the right direction.

    Pros

    Decent people
    If you like in Suffolk county it's good commute
    Decent casual environment
    Some VPs are very nice especially the new one

    Cons

    Bad leadership, especially the president of puritans. The team hates him but everyone is hanging by the thread. Bad culture, no morale. Business hasn't grown in years because they don't invest and expect different results by doing the same thing. Very lean teams and dated technology

    Advice to Management

    Build a culture, improve morale. Invest in people and brands

    Great benefits, professional atmosphere, good chances for advancement.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, in your equipment, and in your facilities. In the long run you will reap the benefits of doing so. The money and time that it takes will come back to you in the long run. Bring the company back to how it was before the Corporation was taken over.

    I worked at The Nature's Bounty Co. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the benefits were good.

    Cons

    The place has gone down hill and most of IT has been outsourced.
    Before they outsourced most of the IT department, it was a chaotic mess and it's only gotten worse. Morale is at an all time low and it will be even lower January 31st when most of the IT department is gone.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to tell them, it's to late, they already destroyed the place and they never listened to their employees anyway.

    Pros

    Long Island Based. Some good products.

    Cons

    CIO is more concerned with expanding his empire than managing what he owns. It shows in the good people he has lost. He displays a lot of favoritism, and promotes or expands the roles of people who fall in this category, even if they don't have the background or skill-set. After years of this, he has lost the respect of his department. He cares only how he advances himself and looks to other execs. He sets unreasonable expectations on the backs of overworked associates and an understaffed department.

    Advice to Management

    This position needs someone who can manage within IT org and also work with leaders throughout the company.
