    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, As long as you were half way competent with a computer you could do more than the management could. Spacious Break area

    Cons

    Management is completely incompetent, and do not know how to manage people or processes. One of the most unprofessional environments in existence. HR team who really doesn't care about the well being of employees, just about their advancement within the company. An inefficient warehouse and a workplace that doesn't care about their employees safety at all.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of anyone with a Manager or above title in Kentucky and bring in people with experience and knowledge of logistics. Clean house and start fresh is the only way the company will be successful. Also there are a lot of people there who do a whole lot of nothing, trim the fat and streamline to the necessary employees in order to increase profit margins.

    Pros

    just for an IPO. But people already started leaving without any options vested. So it's that bad; don't even think about working here. and a small group of good people.

    Cons

    if you take the IPO out, 1/3 of employees leave. Why 2/3 are staying? it's because 1/3 are does not know any better; 1/3 is very incompetent. why people leave? 1. company this size (>100) but very detached between employees and managers. Managers do not know what you are working on. There is no appreciation. Managers and you probably talk once a month 2. incompetent people do finger-pointing to cover their azzes so often that nobody trust anybody. 3. IT manager is so incompetent and a good azz-kisser 4. Management accused employees for what they never did wrong. Then fire them quietly. Nobody knows why people are missing. Nobody knows except management. 5. Management speak evil of employees too 6. Management curse employees; everyday there must be a few speaking profanity. HR watches and keeps their mouth shut. What a typical HR. After a re-org recently, all veterans starting leaving. A start-up and veterans are leaving. You know that you don't want to get in. It smells that bad. Stay away. You have been warned.

    Advice to Management

    - please resign and learn not to speak profanity. If you care about employees, don't say that you don't care. It's better to shut your mouth in that case. - take responsibility - hire better directors/VP. They are so incompetent that every meeting they have to finger-pointing someone else and act like they know better by criticizing other people work. In fact, they don't know anything - Platform, technology and data are messed up. Where is the leadership to take it to the right place? All you do is delaying and months went by and not a single thing completed.
