Perhaps there’s nothing more fitting than a Mercedes-Benz rolling on the mean streets of Camden or Newark. And it’s about high time the company got some credit: in a story that just happens to hit the right buttons, Mercedes-Benz USA was voted one of the best places to work in New Jersey, where they pump fists and not gas.
For the second consecutive year to boot, Mercedes’s American headquarters in Bergen County were cited by NJBIZ Magazine as one of the best large-sized company (over 250 employees), coming in 6th and gaining a position over last year—and being the only car company on the list.
“Mercedes has a long tradition of doing business in the Garden State,” said Ernst Lieb, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA. “To achieve this accolade in a recovering economy is a true statement of how unified we are, working together to inspire our entire organization and deliver the dream that customers associate with the Mercedes-Benz brand.”
Perks at Mercedes include the 3rd-floor water cooler filled with Jager bombs, a call center that plays Ke$ha for hold music, and for being one of the few offices that doesn’t overlook Staten Island.
