Pros

Creative, passionate co-workers who strive hard to create beautiful and good products.
Good work/home life balance.
Believe that employees are the best advocates of the brand and the products - free and discounted products.

Cons

System of promotions is unevenly applied and flawed. System to apply bonuses is flawed.
Not really a culture of telecommuting. Should be more eco-friendly policies and practices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The system to apply bonuses is just off. Plenty of people do a great job and deserve greater proportion of their bonus --- but other teams erroneously give out 5s, skewing bonus distribution for the rest of the company. Also, HR should be better informed of promotions and talking to the appropriate managers for promotions of the people they supervise. There are those who have be here for over 3 years and have never received a promotion, while those who have been here a year get one right away. I understand that some positions open up and create an opportunity, but there's needs to be a system and plan created that encourages employees to continue to build skills and talents and that career opportunities beyond their currently job title is possible.

    Pros

    The company just makes you feel special as an employee, the pay is good and the benefits are excellent!

    Cons

    I like my job so much that I hate to miss work even when I am sick. Don't know if that is a blessing or a curse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    The people are usually nice.

    Cons

    You get the same political B.S. as at any other company - minus the willingness to fire people; thus, truly incompetent / disruptive employees are tolerated for far too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more willing to fire non-performers.
