Run. The idea of this company is better than the reality.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThere are some cool people that work here. Cool brand with potential.

ConsNo HR and a management team team that doesn't understand boundaries or what is/is not appropriate in the workplace. The only thing that seems consistent from the top down is a desire to get drunk and party. More focus needs to be on growing a successful business. There is no respect for partners and internally, managers are not focused on ensuring people are set up for succes

Advice to Senior ManagementHire a HR manager and someone who can adequately create a vision and plan for the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Brilliant Idea, IP and talent (for now), Poor Expansion and Connection to Reality
