Walk, Don't run
Confidental (Former Employee) –  Long Island City, NYOctober 19, 2017
Do yourself a favor and believe the reviews that are posted online. There's not a lot of reviews online about this company, but please do believe what's out there because I didn't. So I will save you the time & grievance of dealing with the company.

Depending who you report to in this company, you'll more than likely be miserable. You're hired and expected to know everything as soon as you start. There is no training offered, and are thrown into the wolves. When you are drowning and seeking help, no one is there to pull you up. Even when you ask for help!

A few take aways from this review: leadership is poor, turnover is high, low salaries offered, no company culture but miserable people that work for a company because they need to pay rent in NYC.

People leave managers not companies, will always be true.

The truth sucks, but someone had to set it free.
Pros
People you work with

Professional workplace environment with room for growth
Former employee (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 4, 2016
A very friendly and professional environment where higher management and executives really listen to what you have to say.They hold meetings on a weekly basis to assure everyone is up to date with projects and what's going on internally. Yes things fall through the cracks at times but management works really hard to assure things also get fixed
Pros
lenient, professional, company perks like summer fridays off
Cons
needs more structure

Terrible Company
Employee (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NYApril 5, 2015
Terrible company. It is family run and wrought with a great deal of extended family that makes up the entirety of management. Most of these individuals have been handed positions they don't have credentials for and it shows in both their work & office manner. You'll be expected to do your boss' job and accept all the blame for any of his shortcomings.

There is no room for growth and the office culture is one that centers around threatening you with grave repercussion if things go wrong but ignoring any kind of success. My short time here was marked with plenty of comments about how my contributions were nothing special and upper management could easily do my job or find somebody to replace me.

Do yourself the favor of avoiding working with & for this company.

None
