Dont work here!
Operations (Former Employee) –  CTDecember 27, 2018
Very poor management relies heavily on favoritism. Upper management is totally out of the loop. They promote an "open door" policy but then retaliate against anyone who speaks up. Promotions and advancements go to "friends & family" over the hardworking employees. Very hostile work environment.
Pros
Pto, Work/life balance

Depends on your manager
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Morristown, NJJuly 9, 2018
My first position there was great! My boss was helpful and encouraging. My second boss was the complete opposite and made working there extremely unbearable! She would tell me 1 thing and then do the complete opposite while informing upper management. She was not trust worthy at all and was 2-faced.

You can Get away with doing very little actual work
Claims Specialist (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJMarch 26, 2018
Surfing the web all day long and frequently checking/using your personal cell phone are way too easy to get away with. No one knows any better, especially if supervisor is not there. So easy to slack off and remain employed!

Don't work here
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Morristown, NJJanuary 16, 2018
Very poor management. Tremendous favoritism. Upper management does not know how poorly their managers are treating the employees. Upper management "believes" that there is an "open door" policy when in fact, if you speak to anyone over your managers head there is tremendous retaliation. Very hostile work environment.
Pros
Fair amount of PTO
Cons
Favoritism, too many friends and family, unfair hostile environment
