I worked at H.BLOOM full-time for less than a yearPros
There are very few pros to working at this horrible company. I had written a positive review a few months back after the HR manager, (who was shortly thereafter abruptly fired along with 10 other senior employees) bothered us daily to write something positive on Glassdoor to bury all the bad reviews this company was getting. BUT since then, I have decided to speak the truth. The only pro to this company are the people. Not so much management, although the COO is hilarious and insanely smart but the sales team. They made daily work somewhat bearable.Cons
DO NOT let H.Bloom trick you into the thinking that the "bumps in the road", the constant changes and their complete and total lack of respect and interest in their employees well-being has ANYTHING to do with them being a startup. A successful startup listens to ideas, invests their time in training employees, appreciates insight and instills confidence. The CEO of the company and the SEED manager "C" will belittle you and make you fight for your position even once you've done all that they told you it would take for you to secure it.
The job itself is exhausting and it's tough to make a sale on "luxury flowers" when the markup is about 300%. Rather than going through H.Bloom, companies have learned to go directly to the florist H.Bloom partners with and get the same quality arrangements for a much smaller price.
The CEO is ultimately a salesman and nothing more. He's in it for the money and will literally sell you on the company and the position - uprooting you from your current city and job, all under false promises. So many times I've heard him carry on during sales meetings about "the future of H.Bloom" and how "deeply he cares for each and every one of his employees" but that is simply just not true. The SEED manager is cut throat and has her own quota to meet. She is also always gossiping about co-workers and, being that the HR department was fired 6 months ago, no one does anything about it. There is NO training or appreciation of employees. It's sad because I think H.Bloom is really on its way out. I moved back to the city they uprooted me from and am much happier at another job!!Advice to ManagementAdvice
