Never mind the lawsuits and other pesky issues – Vonage is growing like crazy. It is adding employees like wild mushrooms after a monsoon rain. The company says it has outgrown its Edison, NJ digs and will be moving to a new office in Holmdel, NJ. The company plans to hire another 1000 employees by the end of the year. The irony of the move should not be lost on anyone – Holmdel is where AT&T and other Bell employees make home. Jeffrey Citron in jest had told me earlier this year, “We are one communications company hiring in NJ when others are laying off people.”
“It should be especially exciting for residents of Holmdel and Monmouth County municipalities who formerly worked for AT&T, Lucent, Agere and Avaya, many of who are still looking for employment in the telecom industry,” Holmdel Mayor Larry Fink told Ashbury Park Press. “That might bode well for them.” Former AT&T employees are loving the idea of Vonage move to their county, according to this report.
