A wolf in sheeps clothing
Shader (Former Employee) –  Johnstown, NYAugust 4, 2016
Everything seems great when you start. Good benefits, good pay, not bad hrs. Very dependent on new hires to work very hard, yet shows a lot of favoritism to select individuals. Honestly, seems more like high school in the way its managed by shift leads, upper management is excellent though. There is too much of the blame game between all shifts. In actuality only the shift leads are unprofessional with the exception of the first shift lead. Co workers are very friendly and knowledgeable and most work as a team with others. I enjoyed my job as a shader. The job duties, depending on what your hired as, are challenging with a very strong attention to detail and very little room for error, which I loved. If the shift leads were more professional and adult like, it would be an excellent place to work.
Pros
excellent benefits and pay rate
Cons
Shift leads need to be more educated, and act a lot more professional

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJJuly 25, 2016
Newark plant the worst place to work, new, youngs and inexperienced management run a modern slavery factory.
They only care about the daily numbers.
People worth nothing, easy replacements.

Company trying hard to reinvent itself
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Montvale, NJJanuary 7, 2016
Family run company that had a culture shock when a corporate CEO was hired. Many people lost their jobs and morale was terrible. There have been changes since and is getting better, but still seems like a company without an identity.
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
Management, dying business model

Not ready for the I/M market
specialty Coatings Rep. (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LAFebruary 10, 2016
Products and pricing is out of line with market requirements. No technical service to attend jobs while coating. Plus distribution points are out of date. while wait times are unrealistic for market.

Customer Service Rep/ Trainer (Former Employee) –  Flanders, NJMay 23, 2016
I started as a temp to hire worked for 3-4 moths and moved up quickly. Hire Full-Time and almost immediately moved up taking over fax distribution team. Was selected to participate in new Sap system debugging program due to company integrating SAP from infinium (an ancient data entry program). After most of the bugs were clear I was nominated do to my knowledge of SAP, to take over training position. I trained current representatives that had been there from 2-20 years as well as 15 new employees retaining 12. Personally every day was less then typical because my hours would be changed to meet company needs. I've learned a lot about paint and its distributers. My co-workers were very helpful at 1st after while I was doing most of the helping. Hardest part of the job, to me was keeping everyone up beat to meet specific cut off times for order to be entered and warehouse to receive it in time to have it on truck for next day delivery( which is a Benjamin Moore pledge. Most enjoyable were also co-workers and the 2 managers. they were very knowledgeable and have great personalities.
Pros
Always changes, Great benefits, Great Bonuses, Great Pay, Helpful Co-workers Kelly Pardo and Kim O'brien the Best
Cons
Team leader can be unprofessional at times

unhealthy work environment
filling (Former Employee) –  johnstownSeptember 23, 2015
Very stressful place to work some of management were bullies to get there numbers out. If you were temporary it took forever to get full-time unless you were in their click. Very few women worked there and thats how they wanted it and it was obvious.And the free lunches were only on occasion not every day or week!!!

Not a place to build your future!
Director (Former Employee) –  MontvaleMay 27, 2015
Senior management is holed-up in their executive wing, making strategic decisions with little input from the rest of the company. Constant churn of employees as the whims of the strategy change. Sales continue to decline year over year, while competition grows at double-digit pace. Not a good long-term outlook here.
Pros
None

Easy to be the smartest person in the room
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Montvale, NJJune 16, 2014
This company is successful despite itself. The products are great, but the people working at the company seem to be trying to ruin it. Direction changes every few months. Everyone is embroiled in power struggles to save themselves from being in the next round of layoffs. People talk about the great hours and free lunch... That's nice, but is that a reason to work somewhere??
Pros
decent hours
Cons
lower pay than other companies, nutty corporate politics at all levels, leadership changes direction every few months. layoffs every few weeks.

Was a great compnay, too many changes going on all at once. They have lost focus on what is important " the customer."
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Richmond VANovember 11, 2013
With all the changes, the customers have lost confindence in Benjamin Moore. The leadership has made choices, that effect the customers and the people in the field. But the leadership continues to keep their job, and everyone else suffers. 3 CEO's in 2 years. They keep doing the same thing expecting the end result to change.
Pros
salaries, and benefits are great. the associates and customers are great.
Cons
the leadership hasn't changed, only the people in the field.

Antiquated Systems, Does Not Progress
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Montvale, NJOctober 20, 2013
I worked at Benjamin Moore over ten years ago. Like many, I was let go. In my department many got let go at their 6 month anniversary after leaving excellent positions to join BM. HR would say "we know there is a problem with that department" yet fail to make any changes in the management where the true problem lies. I see the position I held appearing over and over again with virtually no changes to the job description. When I worked there BM was still using large scale green bar paper!
Pros
free lunch, good discount on paint, most people are very pleasant.
Cons
turnover, antiquated systems, awful cubicles

Good work and pay while it lasts.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Flanders, NJOctober 8, 2013
Most new employees are contractors and for contract work it has good pay and free lunch. However, when the time for re-enlistment comes up, most people are either switched to actual employment or let go. Unfortunately, your actual skill at your position is negligible compared to the money that department has for the purposes of being employed, so don't get too comfortable.
Pros
free lunch, casual enviroment
Cons
contract work, poorly fitting lab coats

Not the best place anymore
Accountant (Former Employee) –  MontvaleJuly 7, 2013
New Management is replacing all employees, yet managers who guided the employees remain. Co-workers are so nice although with all new staff it will be different. Work life/family balance is a thing of the past. Overtime is huge as workload is overwhelming.
It's terrible that great talent is let go instead of rearranging their responsibilities while they are supportive to the company and products. Hope things look up for this company.
Pros
free lunch, good benfits, & casual dress; good bonuses
Cons
work life/family balance; great product
