    I worked at Dynamic Brands full-time

    Pros

    Casual working environment, very open-door and everyone is easy to work with.

    Cons

    No strong leadership that leads by example. Pay is average, benefits are below average. There is not a lot of incentive or understanding of why employees should care aside from getting paid. Would like to get five-star performance from employees but only are providing 2-3 star incentive. Management often just not there with no understanding by employees of where they are, or what direction the business is moving in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on leadership skills and be more transparent about firm and executive activities. Instill sense of pride in company by having sense of pride in your own work and vision.

    Great people in a declining industry and a bi-polar owner

    I worked at Dynamic Brands full-time

    Pros

    All the workers within the company are great people. Very friendly and helpful and willing to help each other with any tasks that need to get done.

    Cons

    The owner tends to hold tight control on the company and not let the people they hire do their jobs. That leads to frustration trying to get projects completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the talented people that are hired to do their jobs and use their expertise to benefit the company. Give a clear vision through clear communication, and let the workers benefit the company.

    Former Employee - Director of Product Development in Richmond, VA

    I worked at Dynamic Brands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people.
    Cradle to grave product involvement.
    Ability to work directly with the factories and customers.
    Micromanagement most of the times is limited and required to get your work done.

    Cons

    Lack of management interaction.
    Management doesn't follow through on actions.
    Management varies from considerate people that have a genuine concern for you as a person, not just an employee, to an almost bi-polar attitude towards various employees and a need for superfluous face time to justify fulfilling their job.
