If only hope were a viable business strategy

(Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

Pros- CEO is very forthcoming with financial information, and has a strong commitment to sharing information
- Management team is full of all-star e-commerce and printing executives who know what they're doing
- this company is growing fast and very smartly run with regard to the top and bottom lines.

Cons- can't keep executives team members in the largest department (3 VPs have quit in 3 years, each after working for less than a year)
- don't offer health benefits to "temporary" employees who work year-round
- goals and metrics change half-way through the quarter, tanking your chance at performance incentives
- upper management is righteous about decisions, and inform staff who are negatively impacted that it is their job to "deal with it" - management won't take responsibility for their own (huge) mistakes
- incompetent staff are kept around to make it look like the company doesn't fire people
- if you are unlucky enough to work closely with one of those people, you have to be prepared to pick up their slack and "be a team player"
- most people work without job descriptions or valid offer letters
- "no really, this year we'll fix it" is something regularly heard...year after year after year, apparently
- CEO sends out corrective, shaming emails to people, copying large groups of people at the company, and also has no clue what's really happening in the company, therefore makes snap judgements to "fix" things that barely make a dent in the serious morale issues, and often times just make them worse
- at least one member of upper management has a track record of bullying employees
- entire teams are looking for new jobs, so turnover is about to go from bad to terrible

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember whose backs this company was built on, and treat them with grace and respect. Making people an afterthought has them divest, and that will be the downfall of this company - you won't fail because of sales, you will fail because no one will stick around to make sure that orders get fulfilled.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
