Wondering if these other reviews were written by the owners!
Assistant product manager (Current Employee), Stamford CTFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: bad pay, little vacation, no room to grow, low raise, politics
This is a horrible place to work! I have never been in an office with a worse morale. Privately owned company means no one to answer to and is run like a loony bin. They don't promote internally and prefer employees to sit with their heads down and not ask questions. You do well here if you are a sheep. Horrible pay and very low raise cap per year.. Not enough to cover inflation! Upper management turns over within months- even they can't handle it! Do not put yourself through this!

Director Sales & Mktg Ops - Cuisinart/Waring Divs (Current Employee), Stamford, CTFebruary 10, 2014
Everyday is different, which I love. Am not pigeion holed into one function. I am involved in every facet of the business.

I learned to listen to the problem, evaluate and make quick decisions to a solution. Numerous differnt issues presnt themselves during the course of the day.

Co-workers for the most part are exellent, just need to keep them focused and goal oriented towards the Corporations growth.

Hardest part at times is to get personnel to understand the whole picture. The goals of the Corporation is the main thrust, not just their own area of concern.

As stated earlier, the diversification that the job affords is the most enjoyable aspect of the job.

While working at Conair I have learned many new things.
Web Production Artist (Current Employee), Stamford, CTAugust 20, 2013
Pros: great challenging atmosphere with plenty of friendly people
Cons: pay scale is a bit low but it benefits in healthcare and free lunch
I was hired as a web production artist but took on many different tasks. Most of the work is front end programming but I also get to design emails and code them in HTML to send out to consumers. I also get to design landing pages and web banner adds as well. I really enjoy the work I get to work on but I also enjoy the people I work with. I normally get along well with anyone but this place is so friendly that you end up knowing everyone in this 300+ person company.

Side Shift Operator (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 5, 2013
Pros: processing mortgage loans
Cons: loans going into default
A typical day is arriving at work which is a beautiful entrance that makes employees proud of what they do for the community. Great from the lowest compensated to the highest makes it clear that without the next person the task will be compromised which goes against our mission statement. Of course as the economy suffers unfortunately so is certain positions throughout the corporate ladder.

Can be a challenging environment if the individual is not resourcefull.
Assistant Product Manager (Current Employee), Stamford, CTMarch 1, 2013
Pros: lunch is free as there is a cafeteria which you do not pay
Cons: lack of support in terms of training
Conair Corporation is a sales driven organization. Products are launched within the 6-9 month period, which is an accelerated timing.

You wear many hats, from brand marketing to trade marketing.

I've learned to develop a broad level expertise from promotional planning, to vendor relations, to navigating the system.

The hardest part of my job was the lack of training in terms of understanding the process. Being able to secure the right contact is key.

Co-workers are great and some have been in the company for a long time, while others do not stay that long because of the lack of support. Marketing seems to be a revolving door within this organization.

Freight Coordinator (Former Employee), Glendale, AZOctober 28, 2012
Entering loads into AS400, Directing drivers where to go to get there load and handling all of the Bill of ladings. Billing the loads and sometimes filling all of the paperwork. I learned alot from Conair my manager and my co-workers we were all challenged at times. The hardest part of my job there would be months end when i would have about 20 drivers at a time and trying to get them all where they needed to be and there bills all with out any mix ups. Loved working with the different types of people and meeting new people.

PRODUCT MANAGER, Hair Dryer (Current Employee), Stamford, CTApril 4, 2012
Pros: free lunches
During my entire career, I have managed and performed key marketing functions including demographic analysis, identification of niche markets, multi-media strategies, use of on-line and social networks, product management and product launches. My efforts resulted in growth rates of 75%, profitability increases of 175%, and #1 market positioning for product lines, resulting in numerous corporate awards.

I attribute my success to my ability to recognize and capitalize on market penetration opportunities, combined with strategies that maximize appeal to niche markets. My management style is to work cross-functionally with internal resources to build consensus and support for shared goals, while capitalizing on revenue growth opportunities. In addition, I am an excellent project manager, taking ideas from concept to successful implementation, using goal setting and performance metrics to ensure the achievement of positive outcomes.
