They are Just Plum Dumb

Regional Manager (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsTalented female Regional Managers. Work from home position.

ConsMisrepresented Regional Manager compensation in the interview process. Constantly changed compensation and goal structures to not have to pay both Regional Managers and District Consultants. Upper management is very cold and has selective memory when it comes to things they've promised. Fired the entire Regional Manager team after wining and dining them in San Francisco, including one woman who left a job on Friday to be fired the following week. Very reactionary.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo find some new jobs. The company won't be around long. Then there's that Karma thing.

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

    Good idea, some great individuals, lots of funding but incompetent leadership.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Plum District full-time for less than a year


    Pros: - Met some intelligent, passionate people - Great idea for a company powered by moms - Kleiner Perkins backed -… Cons: - Culture was depressing: employees from interns through management spent a huge amount of time talking negatively about company prospects and questioning the leadership team -… Advice to Senior Management: Your employees talk a lot more then you think they do. Everyone knows that you're spending way too much money and the revenue just isn't… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Employees are smart as a whip, but corrupt leadership tanks the startup.

    I worked at Plum District full-time for less than a year


    Pros: *Great coworkers - fun group of people to be around *Lots of talent,… Cons: *Utter disorganization, along with an overly bureaucratic mentality that prevents improvements in the structure and workflow of the company *Demoralizing senior level management *Awful team building exercises… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to your employees and respond. They know what they're doing in the daily operation of the business… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
