Not quite an environment where one can thrive
Financial Administrator (Former Employee), Yonkers, NYJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: was close to home
Cons: everything
The turnover rate is high, and of course there are reasons for that. For. eg. before I was hired, there were 4 different people in my position over a 5yr span under the controller.Thing is, the title controller didn't limit him to Job specific duties. Only a "yes man" could last longer than I did under his leadership, unfortunately my character would not let me be a "yes man."

I did 2+ yrs there, but that's because I have the gift to IGNORE BS. There is plenty to go around, upper management turns a blind eye, until said BS hits the fan.

Rewarding position with 30% growth year over year.
Director of Operations - East Coast (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJune 21, 2013
Pros: exciting growing a company.
Company was basically in start-up mode when I was hired. I learned a tremendous amount of knowledge developing and implementing KPI's that we used to make decisions and run the company. I started with one direct report and had 5 upon completion of my tenure. Every year we set financial and operational goals for our team, and every year we surpassed them significantly. Lots of travel every week to multiple operations throughout the East, Puerto Rico and Canada.
