Pros

Culture is top of mind for this organization. Best described as work hard/play hard. It is evident that the organization really cares about their people. CEO and Executive Leadership team is extremely approachable and small entrepreneurial high growth E-commerce Company provides excellent learning ground.

Cons

Retail/E-commerce industry sometimes requires work non-typical hours. High growth has allowed organization to grow its corporate staff. Growing/Learning pains should be expected.

Advice to Management

Keep bringing in top talent.

    Pros

    There are a lot of positives, but many come at a cost. The company pays higher, but this mainly due to the poor reputation and difficulty in hiring. The environment is fast changing and you get to touch a lot of different technologies, but this typically leads to things not getting fully implemented. The culture will also toughen anyone up and prepare them to deal with any situation.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the hardest one to fix; the owner. Be prepared to be micro-managed and marginalized in what you do. Nothing happens without his detailed review which often is unpleasant and frustrating. There is no work-life balance as the company owns you in the office or out. Be prepared for phone calls at 6am or on the weekend. There is also the rapid turn-over of just not individuals but entire departments. I have saw HR for example turn over completely four times.

    Advice to Management

    The biggest advice is to sell the company or let a professional CEO step in. Nothing will change unless it starts at the top.

    Pros

    It's a great place to work to acquire "character", if you are willing to give all you got in the gamut ( but all you got). Respect the opportunity to be pushed and acquire new skill sets and experiences.

    Cons

    It' ll "suck the life out of you" , if you let 'em. It's not for the meek or the weak.

    Advice to Management

    None, the model is blatantly a "self fulfilling prophecy" of turn over and relentless ways to maximize profit. But retail is a low margin venture isn't it ?
