The job sounds better than it is.

Associate Brand Manager (Former Employee) Emeryville, CA

ProsThe products are fun and for the most part you feel good about them because they're educational. Technology and innovation are really cool and represent the brand well.

ConsThis isn't brand management at all, it's product management. Executives drive initiatives without talking to one another so there's a ton of rework and last minute scrambles. There is no employee loyalty. Strategies have huge directional changes almost every 6 months.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a plan. Stick to it long enough to know whether it is working and how best to react. Communicate with your team. Recognize that your employees are working really, very hard.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
