This is a hostile place to work--only for those who can handle constant stress.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Pedro, CA

ProsThe products are quite good and the company professes to be environmentally responsible.

ConsVery hostile work environment. No training aside from the sales department--you are expected to just find your own way without much direction or support. The CEO is a madman, so there is an atmosphere of fear that causes employees to throw each other under the bus to avoid getting screamed at.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive positive feedback--not just negative input. Protect your subordinates instead of sacrificing them to the CEO.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
