Poor leadership and a business concept that is past its prime

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsAt the beginning, the promise of working from home, being an entrepreneur, and earning a decent salary was very exciting. Management showed models of our earning potential that were motivational.

ConsThe team and workflow was very disorganized. In particular, the CEO, Megan Gardner, was an ineffective and inexperienced leader. She was terrific at selling staff members on the promise of Plum District. But once you scratched through her rah rah speeches, HBS jargon, ever-changing financials, and mindless productivity practices, you saw that she was an inexperienced manager who cared much more about making a dollar and a name for herself than the wellbeing of her team.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are a potential investor, stay away. This company and business model are sure to implode in the coming year.

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

    Revolving door / Frequent job eliminations / Strongly not recommended

    Regional Manager (Former Employee)

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

    Pros: Work from home office / remotely Generous vacation Cons: They started out hiring a regional manager for each market in which they wanted to source local deals. They attracted accomplished sales talent, wooed them… Advice to Senior Management: Have some dignity and respect for people and stop hiring people when you know you're not going to employ them for long Get it together, create… More
