Coordinator/Planner/assistant (Former Employee) – Nj – April 5, 2014
It's pretty casual.jeans & a tshirt or sweater..there are 10 employees & no one gets together for happy hour or anything because we are always working. Some days are pleasant & most are not.. Overworked & under compensated sums it up..you don't get what you thought you'd be getting out of this job.. Broken promises, no bonuses, no commission & you work overtime for free. Owner talks down to everyone & blames his mistakes on other people..has unnecessary meetings where he breaks you down & berates you & then tells stories about his personal life in gross detail. I'm doing the work of 3 people so I'm totally screwed with my salary..working your hired regular hours of 9-530 isn't good enough so you have to stay to 730-8 to make him happy (even though he shows up between 11-12 & leaves 4 or 5)
My co-workers & a casual small office
Can't take lunch, work 10 hour days without compensation, getting talked down to
What many people don't realize is that all corporate office run the same...no matter how big or small.. I challenge someone to tell me a tell me 1 time you didn't disagree with your boss.. It's life, you move on but you don't go attacking someone with one sided stories when the others can't explain their side.. Believe me or not but office politics happen everywhere and in my first hand experience the blame shouldn't be only be placed on the employer..in my first hand experience the ex employees have a Lot to blame on themselves,
Feels like a family
Days are long but who cares when you get summer hours
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Ramsey, NJ – December 13, 2014
Native Nation Events is a very small company with less than 15 full-time employees. My experience at Native Nation Events, though brief, proved to be a negative one. The owner also acts as creative manager and was my direct superior. Personally, I had no problem with him but my female coworkers were not so lucky. He made overt advances towards them and on multiple occasions implied to several coworkers that they would do better business if they slept with our male clients. I could not deal with this type of environment.
Group Account Manager (Former Employee) – Ramsey, NJ – November 19, 2013
A typical day of work consisted in being harrased by the owner. He would micro- manage all of us and call you into uncessary meetings only to put you down by insulting you or talking about inappropiate personal life matters.
Everyone in the office was unhappy and felt harrassed. The turnover was alarming and he would strategically lay people off right before they're commision and bonus was due to them.
