    I worked at Daymon Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Daymon is the Industry leader in each of their divisions. Knowledgeable, aggressive executives are doing great job growing the company in highly competitive marketplaces and trying to diversify to give the company a broader base. They have a fantastic ESOP and good compensation. Benefits are good..

    Cons

    An ambitious CFO has heavily outsourced many positions, particularly in HR and IT. Job stability has decreased for many positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regain some of the heart Daymon was founded with.

    I worked at Daymon Worldwide as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Expert in Private Label, retailer relationships, supply expertise, good people, decent culture and work life balance, flexible working arrangements possible, opportunities for growth and development. Competitive compensation/benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of solid processes, frequent changes in direction and structure, frequent disconnect between field teams and corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through on initiatives, achieve continuity in strategy, focus on fewer better thought out initiatives rather than chasing every seemingly good opportunity. Demand performance, but offer appreciation.

    I have been working at Daymon Worldwide full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Good potential for growth, however the jobs don't really change as you move up....just different title and pay

    Cons

    -Big disconnect between corporate and the account teams. Can lead to some frustration. Depending on the account you are at, the culture can be completely different (good or bad).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Need much better training programs in place.

    I have been working at Daymon Worldwide as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Daymon's summer internship program was the best internship I've had, by far. Their internship program was not a second-thought, it was well planned and designed, and interns were well compensated. Interns learned about every department of the company and were taken on field trips in order to better understand the business that the company is in.

    Cons

    The cafeteria food gets old quick, but that's everywhere…

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the incredible internship program.

    Pros

    Fantastic ESOP, Professional development, Mobility, Health Benefits are great. Training programs are top notch.

    Cons

    Very Political, Too much uncertainty and change, Low pay, promotes people based on individual performance and not on their ability to lead people....Employee satisfaction depends on your account (you can have a fantastic experience in one location or be subjected to a toxic work environment in another).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not allow employees with poor management skills to manage people.

    Pros

    Working Independently, can work whatever days you choose, job is simple and pays well. The workers are more than happy to assist you in whatever you need.

    Cons

    Some months are slow, so its best to have another job on the side. Sometimes, the promotional items don't make it to the store so it's hard to fully promote the item you're trying to sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I just wished the management contacted more often just to see how one is doing

    Pros

    Yet another merch company that allows low pay and hours, but you can set your own schedule. There are ALOT of these out there so look for the family businesses, they pay more.

    Cons

    They lie about salary, benefits, hours.....everything. Don't let them fool you folks. They email several offers of jobs but none of them pay over $15 an hour. If you can live off that, go for it. High pressure, low pay doesn't add up to a decent job for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the bait and switch with "open" opportunities. You can get sued over that kind of thing, you know.

    Pros

    The best thing about the company is the ESOP.

    Cons

    Lack of support from VP and upper management, accountability for field teams but very little to none for corporate support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop creating annual goals that are beyond reasonable reach without business plans to execute against. Stop hiring "new" talent at the expense of vested tenured employees.
