    Pros

    Really nice peers, good location, nice office decor, game room (but you risk being fired if you are seen in there)

    Cons

    Kids II is a small company focused on small things. From top down there is little strategic direction or vision for the future. Employee turnover is high because of non-exsitant work/life balance and constant firing of talented employees on management's whim. There there is little no coaching and a major sense of fear among all employees. They also misquote job descriptions and are likely to sell you something other than what you are getting-which is a source of frustration among all new hires. They force you to sign an agressive and one-sided non-compete. They are highly leveraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, management lacks honesty, integrity and behaves in a way that is unethical towards competitors and employees. My advice would be to take loads of sleeping medications, because if I treated people the way they do, I would not sleep at night.

    I worked at Kids II

    Pros

    Nice people for the most part.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, weird culture, not open to new ideas, too many steps to get something done. During the interview process they stress work/life balance, flex time but when you are actually there it's a joke!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the layers and focus more on some of the new talent that you have before they figure out what your veteran's didn't....This place has succeeded in spite of management team not because of it!
