    Pros

    Amazingly friendly environment, Endless possibilities for growth, Free chocolate covered fruit, Stocked pantry in break room, Dress down days, 30% discounts at select stores, catered meals for special holidays and events, some positions offer commission paychecks combined with an hourly paycheck, Tons of benefits for full-time employees, Company owns their own IT company for office support and store support for a fast and knowledgeable response team. The company has a whole team for store support to troubleshoot orders and stores that frequently get complaints to filter out call volumes going to CSR. Very sophisticated telecommunication and POS system that's easy to use. Company uses advanced technology when it comes to their computers, software, and even their building.

    Cons

    Location. I relocated to Boston to seek out high education options and they only have a corporate headquarters in Wallingford. They do not offer work-from-home positions and their stores are privately owned so things don't always pan out between stores and the corporate office. Jobs are not transferrable since the stores are privately owned however they do accept recommendations from supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Bigger break room!

    Pros

    Fun job, okay pay, co-workers pretty good, boss pretty reasonable, no drug test, laid back atmosphere, free fruit sometimes, owners pretty nice

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to find the recipient, got stuck in the mud once, sometime shady characters try to approach you asking for money or trying to rob (had this happen to me more delivering pizza though)

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little more, this is a dangerous job all delivery drivers deserve a raise for putting their lives on the line in dangerous driving conditions

    Pros

    fun environment, yummy food and had a great group of co workers

    Cons

    the company kept changing their products so each franchise would have to purchase everything brand new and discontinue the product we had in the store

    the fees from the company were insane

    Advice to Management

    change your policies

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great customers, dipped fruit, holiday pay, easy work, 30% employee discount at some franchises.

    Cons

    At this particular franchise, a co-worker was moved stores because a customer said they delivered a moldy arrangement and called them a dirty Mexican (Not Hispanic at all).
    At a store owned by the same franchisee, that was extremely understaffed, a co-worker was working over 40 hours a week, but the franchise owner had taken his hours off his check for a month. When confronted, the owner denied it and moved him to a different store owned by the same franchisee.
    Minimum wage (although, its easy work except for holidays, long hours).
    Holidays I worked an average of 40 -50 hours. Sometimes 5am-10pm to be back at 5am the next morning.

    Advice to Management

    Don't under-staff your stores. Corporate needs to investigate store owners when complaints are raised. I've seen more firings for illegitimate reasons here, than I ever have in my 15 years of working. Shady franchise owners who cut corners and treat employees like slave labor.

  9. Edible is great place to work as long as you are okay with making minimum or slightly higher-yummy product!

    Pros

    A growing company with a fun product line. The corporate headquarters is a generally friendly environment where people know each other's names. The company hosts monthly birthday celebrations for employees with snacks, ice cream, lunch etc. and there's always lots of free fruit. This company has a very fast moving culture which keeps things interesting and no two days will be exactly the same. There's always a new project to work on. Employees are generally extremely hardworking and dedicated.

    The office itself is located right between New Haven and Hartford which makes it very convenient. Because the company is only a little over 15 years old, computers, equipment and building are pretty modern. Overall a pleasant place to come to work. Benefits are decent and you can earn additional PTO for extra hours worked during peak holiday times.

    Cons

    There is very little life/work balance. Early mornings and late nights are pretty much a given. Office hours are typically 9-6 which makes it a little tough to get much accomplished after work. The company has worked hard to improve morale and culture, but high turnover is still present and this often becomes a major stressor and impacts overall morale. Advancement opportunities are limited in many departments, but if you're willing to fight for it you could push your way forward.

    Advice to Management

    More positive reinforcement and transparency when it comes to internal reorganization. Upper management should use the talented people in the company as a resource to make major decisions.
