    A unique start-up with a great culture and strong growth prospects

    (Former Employee)
    Cambridge, MA

    ProsLiving Proof is a biotech/beauty hybrid which brings the best attributes from both industries. The employees are respected and there is a strong focus on creating a fun workplace that drives collaboration and innovation. Given the growth trajectory of the company, there are frequently events that recognize individual and team accomplishments, this dynamic fosters a very positive working environment. The team is extremely diverse and talented, there is much to learn from your co-workers who come from many different walks of life. Work/Life balance varies by department, but there is generally a fair amount of flexibility especially for those with children.

    ConsLike many start-ups, there is not a defined career path and development opportunities are limited. Salary for middle management is not competitive with the biotech industry although this is typically supplemented with a generous stock option package.

    Marketing does not know how to "market" their product.

    Everything A "Start Up" Should NOT Be! (Former Employee)
    Cambridge, MA

    ProsThe products are great and really work.

    ConsThe marketing team does not seem to know what they are doing not only in terms of new product development and brand management, but also in terms of professional development. They hire and fire employees on a whim and they also do the same with their agency partners, treating them like service-people and not the marketing and branding experts they are. The brand manager has zero management experience, which doesn't work out to well when they are managing someone, the CMO doesn't care about professional development of their employees, nor knows much about the products themselves or the competitive landscape, and the people are just not nice, not a good working environment and very unprofessional people all around. I've never encountered a situaition in which the people are so unkind and just downright weird, but at Living Proof that's what you get!

    Advice to Senior ManagementBRAND BRAND BRAND, oh and invest in actually training your employees and taking an interest in their professional development, especailly the managers. Start-up's are supposed to be fast paced, but by not taking the time to really train your employees you are wasting their time and yours. You will never find the "perfect" person if you don't take the time to train them and let them learn and as a result you will never be the big brand you want to be. The big brands do take the time to do this - and as a result they are sucessful and their employees thrive.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
