Dysfunctional is only the beginning

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe products are amazing and as an employee you are given great discounts.

ConsBurwell is a sinking ship. They are constantly changing things - the building, people's roles, processes - all without any communication. It is not unusual to come to work and find you have a completely different job or they moved your department. They also have a ridiculously high turnover, especially in the sales department. In the time I have worked there I think they have turned over 80-90% of the employees. The number of employees who make it two years or longer I could count on one hand. They used to have what employees called "firing Fridays" because it was almost guaranteed they were going to fire someone on payday Fridays. Its also not unusual for them to write you up instead of giving you a review so they can justify not giving you a raise. The sales goals are not sustainable, the processes are laborious and they pay is not competitive. No one, including some managers will make a decision without running it by one of the owners for fear of repercussion. I'm talking about spending a $15 here or there. I think company could be amazing but the owners won't get out of their own way.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey spent a ton of money with a consulting company to find out how to improve morale. Management should have listened. The employees talked about more flexible work hours, more competitive pay, room for growth and the ability to make their own decisions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Burwell industries has some amazing products that I was very proud to stand behind, The designer and her team have a wonderful amount of creativity… Cons: With the great experience, management would load your plate and make you take more on without matching pay.
