Consider this place if you want a heart attack and dead end career

(Current Employee)

ProsCoffee, free expired products, gym, Florida location, close to lunch spots, brilliant people to make friends with

ConsWhere should I start? We used to have a discount and free products, that is no longer happening. We also used to get free lunches on Fridays, but I guess that was eating into the budget, so instead of keeping that they cut it out and continue to pay executives an embarrassing salary and lunch expense account. The leadership has high turnover; the CFO, CIO (and recently COO fired) positions all are revolving doors with people who are ex cops, unqualified, and come from other companies where the CEO believes they have the magic potion. The reality is that the company is losing money hand over fist, has horrible wall street reviews and is in trouble. They don't purchase office supplies any more either; go figure. A lot of the old timers are just holding onto their jobs because that's all they have; they're unqualified to go elsewhere. The web development area can't even find people to stay; their turnover is high and the IT direction is gloomy and dull. If you are looking for a comical experience, join Vitacost. You won't be disappointed at the circus pitstop.

Advice to Senior ManagementTighten up the trust and get a consulting firm in there to advise you on how to make money.

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