Pros

Innovative, entrepreneurial environment; fun perks like in-office manicures/massages and an in-house free Starbucks; great people and amazing offices

Cons

This company is in a period of transition from a small startup to a mid-sized operation and there are growing pains that come with this; management being split between 2 corporate offices in different cities can sometimes be a challenge

Advice to Management

Put more focus on developing good managers and leaders

    Pros

    High-energy work environment. Flexible work schedule, lots of incentives for sales team and management is very hands on and supportive.

    Cons

    Be flexible with change and innovation! It's a very entrepreneurial environment-need to be a self starter and motivated.

    Advice to Management

    Company values are strong and management is very hands on to improve and constantly innovate the way the company operates. Lots of perks to include in-office amenities from an on site Starbucks to manicures, massages, samples and more!

    Pros

    Design is gorgeous. I've met some wonderful people while working here.

    Cons

    Working at Sandow is like being in the movie "Mean Girls." Staff is "cliquey" I felt like I was back in high school instead of a professional atmosphere. Upper management is cold and condescending. For example, Many mornings I'd greet the CD or other upper management with a "Good Morning" and she'd always turn her head and walk faster...completely rude! No room to grow, they like keeping you in the roles you were initially hired for instead of nurturing and growing talent. No raises, No overtime pay. Instead of raises or bonuses, they like you give lavish gifts and fill the office with fancy coffees to hide the fact. Also, seeing the CEO in new sports cars and new aquisiitions made me question their honesty and ethics No Communication between CEO/Upper management and rest of company. Inefficient: Used Old software, on deadline I'd work until 10-11 pm with no lunch break and weekends. AD is a micromanager who created additional unnecessary work, rude and wasn't open to new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to get off their high horses and come back down to earth. Respect and appreciate hard working staff with raises!
