Clerical Asst to Sales Order Dept, (Former Employee) – Carlstadt, NJ – August 20, 2017
After about 5 months of part time work, I was doing the work of a full time employee, unrecognized. They hired a full type assistant to the department...poof, there went their need for me. Laid off after 6 months.
Good company with a great legacy and high profile name for design industries. Most of the associates are great people and nice to work with. Senior leadership was just ok as it was a challenge to developing relationships and establish clear communication due to the abundance of meetings and travel schedules. It wasn't clear at times the roles and responsibilities of fellow employees as there've been many departmental changes. Overall work-life balance is good depending on the department as some work longer hours than others. Benefits and PTO are very good. Unfortunately, there's a lack of corporate culture and sense of community.
Pantone started out excellent when it was a privately owned company, once it was sold to a larger corporation the atmosphere and morale of the workers declined due to the replacement ofmanagers with little to no knowledge of what we actually did there.
