Great boss now, but wasn't always the case.

Pros

Great discount and gratis. Really fun people to work with. Great company values, they just don't live them.

Cons

Constant chaos. I have had more bosses than I can count. Some have been good, but most were really, really, bad. The company never seems to know what their next move is and launches are not successful many time because the teams have no idea what is going on. Sr leadership does not seem to care, and people who perform poorly are often kept around because upper management likes them. Promotions also seemed to be based off of popularity and not actual skill for the job. If you are not someone who adapts to change easily, you will hate this place.

Advice to Management

Clean house starting from the top down. Promote who is the best for the job and not who you like the most...

    Pros

    Great Discount, bonus good (when can hit sales goals), great products and customers.

    Cons

    Higher sales goals when company is down, late or out of stock products, communication is not as proactive as they could be.

    Advice to Management

    Talk with managers of retail stores to figure out that works and what does not.

    Pros

    Fun peers, great free product, and Leslie is inspiring (although she is pulling away from the business).

    Cons

    If you like to receive a bonus or job security, do NOT work here. The company leaders make poor business decisions, and HR leaders make uninformed decisions that effect employees negatively. Many of the company leaders are creative, which is great, but they do not have good business sense or know how to run a profitable company. Employees do not bonus, they are losing business, and things are going downhill. Employees are starting to leave, and others are being laid off. This could be such a great company with happy customers and great products, but without knowledgeable business leaders this company will never get there.

    Advice to Management

    Send leaders to business classes or bring in leaders with good business sense. When employees are questioning decisions made by leaders, and in the end the employees are right, a change needs to be made.
