    I worked at Kids II full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun company events, smart and cool coworkers, gorgeous office environment, constant change and improvement, a lot of internal communications from the CEO, upper managers that work as hard (usually harder) than the employees, awesome products. Job scopes are usually larger compared to other companies, so you get to take on more and learn more.

    Cons

    Kids II is definitely not for everyone which is evidenced by some of the negative reviews on here. People seem to either love it or hate it. The company has very high expectations and if you're not pulling your weight, it will be noticed and addressed. A lot of the previous posters write reviews as if this were a bad thing but I disagree. If I'm busting my butt and the person next to me is slacking off, I want someone to say something! And yes, Kids II does have a lot of turnover for this reason. But there's also turnover because competitors love our employees - we developed some of the smartest, well-rounded, hardest working employees in the industry. Recruiters are constantly trying to woo employees away; sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn't. So read the reviews and take it with a grain of salt. If someone wrote a scathing review because Kids II is hard on their employees, you can make the assumption that their performance was addressed. And it is true that a lot of people aren't "good cultural fits" but this doesn't just address the "drinking the coolade" type of culture; the culture is to put in 100%, make smart decisions and constantly improve. If you're not doing that, then you don't fit the culture, plain and simple.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more time and money into training and developing the employees. This will pay huge dividends in the long run.
