    Pros

    There are great opportunities to grow and learn within the company, it is very much dependent on networking, and having key people in senior management go to bat for you. There are many company holidays and perks, and the name alone makes you very proud to work for the company.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be challenging; and as I benchmarked myself against colleagues with similar education and work experience, I found I am not being paid what I'm worth. Senior management can be very tough to work with, as there are several difficult personalities that make you wonder how they were able to excel in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment where poor attitudes from senior management is discouraged. Pay employees what they are worth if you want to retain talent long term.

    Pros

    Lots of freedom in work, and innovative ideas are always welcome, tons of product & awesome benefits ($25 a month gyms), great people, CSR commitments (look up Share & Care). If you are a high performer and are motivated to switch functions, brands, or locations you can make that happen. There are lots of opportunities to go beyond your role.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be hard if you are not used to a challenging atmosphere, and it is challenging. Sometimes you don't have the resources, sometimes you don't have the buy in from people you need, but you always push through and deliver. Achieving excellence is core to how we work and it is expected out of everyone in every level and function.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote managers that encourage feedback and collaboration.

    Pros

    I love this company. They are so good to their employees. Their products are amazing. I can see myself moving up and retired there.

    The only I can say about it is the hours working retail but that's just part of the job!

    Advice to Management

    More Communication with staff and better training.

    Pros

    The pay was decent and the opportunities for growth are nice. I really liked my actual job that I was doing. It was rewarding with the people I personally was working with. I am also a glass half full kind of person so I stayed focused on the work and not all of the other stuff.

    Cons

    I was spread so thin and upper management was spread so thin there is literally zero work life balance. They work you to the bone and take everything you have without giving you much in return. Communication is sparse and authenticity rare.

    Advice to Management

    People work for people. It's obvious the individuals who are there that don't like what they are doing. If they are in upper management and responsible for motivating and leading a core group of individuals and they don't do that then replace them. It becomes exhausting, defeating, and discouraging over time to keep giving 110% when you don't have the proper leadership keeping you going.

    Pros

    fast-paced strategic vision for the long term product centric traditional marketing leaders

    Cons

    need to be more customer -focused fickle decision making

    Advice to Management

    Think about the client first along every touch point....the life cycle of a product continues well after the launch. Customer loyalty is key to measure average lifetime value of a client and the business implications that has on the bottom line.
