I have been working at Plum District part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Flexibility of schedule, low pressure sales, ability to work from home, offers moms a good work/life balance while using skillset.

Cons

Decrease in commission structure, you are required to not only sell and close a deal but then you are only paid if your offer sells in your area which does not always happen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maintain clear and consistent rules and regulations in all areas.

    I have been working at Plum District part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The only good thing about this company is the other employees. The connections that are made in your local communities with the businesses that you will partner with.

    Cons

    An ever changing (and not for the better) compensation package. Division Directors that are so money hungry and have been drinking the Kool Aid for so long that they don't realize or just don't care how they treat their sales people and all of their recently fired regional managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop abusing moms and get rid of your "for moms by moms" tag line as it is not a true testament of how you treat people. Do everyone a favor and file bankruptcy now so as to save more of your hard working employees the embarrassment of being let go suddenly and without just cause.

    I have been working at Plum District full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The amazing people I have met while employed and their wicked sense of humor

    Cons

    Lack of intelligent leadership; lots of meetings, and talking, and making power point slides but no action taken that will truly grow the business; CEO lacks loyalty or integrity and takes credit for founding something she did not; Using "moms" (the most loyal, well connected group of people in the world) to build a business, and then laying them off with no severance; hiring leadership that is completely clueless and inadequate; no training, no consistency and no idea how to market; basic lack of ability to run a successful business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing pretend. Investors, potential employees and other potential partners should be cautious. No matter what industry, loyalty and integrity matter and you have neither. You are taking a brilliant business model and ruining it.
