I have been working at Euro-Pro full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Fast growth. Decent benefits and pay but don't be fooled.

Cons

Very high stress place. You are required to work 24/7. Turn over is extremely high and management does not care! People run around putting out fires all day and work at night. Most people know they made a mistake by taking the job within 1-2 weeks. The only thing you can learn at this company is what not to do!!! Don't be fooled by the salary, it's not worth it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You know you are doing something wrong when your retail buyers are negatively commenting on your poor management of employees. Invest in people and they will invest in you! Right now, your employees are running from you, not towards you

    Pros

    Great benefits, free b'fast on Fridays, interesting work

    Cons

    HIGH stress, no respect. Churn and burn environment. Privately owned so there is no accountability. Most of the upper management is not as competent as the lower level employees. Although the company is growing very fast, it is getting harder to recruit qualified personnel because of the bad reputation of the company. Product development is intriguing, but in the end, the products are "disposable" and not high quality. No quality of life or work/life balance in most departments. Management has hired outside consultants to assist in growth, but the treatment of employees has not changed. If you are a good politician, you will do well at Euro-Pro. It's a 24/7 job. Don't even think about turning off your phone or leaving your computer at work. The medical benefit package is very generous, which is good because you'll need it. Very few career growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Treat people with respect. Don't manage through scare tactics, but rather through example. The average tenure is about 1-2 years, so once an employee is "up to speed" and is capable of major contributions, the employee is burned out and is seeking employment elsewhere. Slow down. It's amazing that products can be developed so quickly, but there is a price to such speed. Euro-Pro is growing by leaps and bounds and that is truly exciting. However, its negative reputation, (both for employees as well as for 'cheap' products) is growing at the same speed.
