I have been working at BeachMint

Pros

- Great if you are into marketing, branding, fashion, generally female-driven products.
- Lots of bright and fun people, "cool" atmosphere.
- Chance to be a part of something growing, may go very big.
- Always a new technical challenge, never boring.
- Celebrities show up at the office for no particular reason.
- Free lunch on Fridays.

Cons

- Celebrity driven brand marketing is the "new normal", space is becoming crowded, competition is fierce.
- BeachMint is like many other "Dot Com" companies, featuring rapid growth, strong need for technical leadership / standardization of processes.
- Location in Santa Monica means a tough commute for many.
- Space is small relative to number of employees, open-plan office, no cubicles, little privacy.
- General sense that VC's are putting money in because they want a horse in this race, uncertainty about where it will go and how it will end.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep fighting the good fight. Keep doing things that are generous to the rank-and-file employees. And eventually move to a bigger office.
