    Pros

    Great culture and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Management and communication need some improvement

    Advice to Management

    It would be better if executive members can share more of what's going on behind the meeting room and stop making empty promises.

    Pros

    It's a fun place to work at first glance. People bring their dogs to work, company parties are fun, beer Fridays, etc.

    Cons

    Backstabbing culture. Management is haphazard and mercurial.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that work for you and change how you do business

    Pros

    The good world: great place to make friends among peers. Great culture initiative by allowing dogs, flexible hours, gatherings, fun events. Great products!

    Cons

    The bad world: immature upper management doesn't know how to control the business.

    Poor decisions cost a lot of money and all goods intentions go sour in tough times. Tons of money flushed on a lower end brand launch, constant packaging changes and marketing strategy shifts. Sales knew those weren't the right moves, but upper management didn't listen.

    Advice to Management

    Stop going zigzag to reach a goal. Stick with one strategy and work on it straight for some time. Maybe the new brand positioning will survive. Hope it's not to late!

    Pros

    The only reason worth staying would be the people you get to work with at your level. But they're mostly laid off or left.

    Cons

    It was a great company to work at 2 years ago. The CEO has a bit too much pride and took it too personal when people left. Management was too immature and everyone is a yes man to the CEO. Otherwise it could've been a great company.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest the CEO to re-evaluate the upper management and clean up the people who aren't doing really contributing in the management section.

    Pros

    casual work environment, dogs, fun people, maybe good for your first job to start a career but not the place to work if you are trying to advance your career, fast pace, not boring

    Cons

    total lack of ethics, zero structure, there is a boy's club with upper management, no planning, high turnover, lots of layoffs, very long hours, on call all of the time, pay below average, most experienced people quit shortly after hire, everyday feels like a fire drill.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should step down, he is great with ideas but terrible with managing business. Upper management should stop being yes men. Do some actual planning and research, instead of going on a whim. Scale down your operations until you can optimize efficiency.

    Pros

    Very open atmosphere, good people, and accomodating

    Cons

    The business is hurting bad now...this was due to a complete lack of planning...lets just say if you asked where are we going to be in a month the answer would be..."I don't know". Owner sticks his hands in things way too much, he needs to trust and leverage his upper management to run things, not micromanage projects and paralyze things as people wait on him to make a decision. Make decisions based on sound marketing research...someone coming off a bio-break with a "great" idea does not constitute a sound business decision to spend thousands of dollars in capital equipment, design time, and headaches for a new product..

    Advice to Management

    Take a more active role in the final decision and don't just be yes men to the owner...trust me, his decisions are not always a good ideas (most of the time they aren't). try to enforce some level financial responsibility behind the decision to initiate a project....hundreds of thousands of dollars have gone to waste in un-realized projects in the short time i was there...dont repeat this.

    Pros

    Good work environment and nice people. Challenging and rewarding while setting up new operational processes and facilities from the ground up.

    Cons

    Internal management problems. Management likes to jump to decisions without considering all the facts. CEO doesn't listen to his executive team and seems to just do what he wants.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to listen to their employees who are the ones dealing with the issues first hand. CEO needs to wake up and not ruin a good thing, but thats probably too late.

    Pros

    Very good coworkers that are very smart and hard working. You can bring your pets to the office.

    Cons

    The company is completely undisciplined and irresponsible. It is a company that came to fruition by luck and it showed as soon as the company encountered even the slightest hiccup. Decisions are made on a whim and accountability is unheard of. The face of the company is a fun environment, but inside is turmoil and instability. Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees and what is going on. Recognize that company is spiraling and quit sugar coating everything. Make a decision and stick to it.

    Pros

    Get independence to do things the way you want to. Mistakes and learning from them are a stepping stone to success

    Cons

    Some employees cannot work well under stress. Its an environment that is high paced yet high stress and its hard to keep everyone motivated
