I worked at CustomInk full-time for less than a year
Pros – Great benefits, lots of room to grow. Constant (sometimes mandatory) overtime available during busy season. Free lunch twice a week and very cheap health insurance.
Cons – Only existing employees are considered for increasingly responsible positions. Your Manager will probably be a "lifer," along with your coaches and everybody up to Rob K. These folks have no outside experience and the result is misguided incestuous mid to lower level management. Grow slow to get it right.
Ambitious marketing outpaced reasonable hiring capabilities which trickled down to the other teams like a Reaganomics fever dream. Best quote from busy season: "I am so stressed out, I haven't had a day off in over a week and this is all over (expletive deleted) t-shirts! I WANT MY LIFE BACK!"
Advice to Senior Management – A "lifer" there once told me "CustomInk is like a salad, I love the toppings but some of the stuff under them is pretty bad." Open up to outsiders for a healthy mix of promotions and new blood. Grow slow.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at CustomInk
Pros – Great location, good benefits, free food, nice enough co-workers, fun and relaxed environment. No micromanaging and no scrambling around. Ok pay.
Cons – Managers aren't really experienced, and it shows. This can be good on one hand, but bad when leadership is actually needed. When first hired, I felt tricked a little. My salary was lower than the minimum that was advertised and the schedule wasn't what was advertised either. It's not THAT big of a deal, but it does make me question the integrity of the company. It's like they advertised greatness to get you excited and then once you're hired, they take all that away. But you don't want to walk away because of the difficult job market. That's what happened. Overall, it's ok, but I'm not WOWed.
