    I worked at New Chapter

    Pros

    Company culture supports personal health with onsite chi gong and meditation classes, organic snacks, a walking trail and a vegetable garden, as well as an employee allowance for purchasing supplements.

    Cons

    Cubicle environment. Increasingly corporate atmosphere as a result of the acquisition by Proctor and Gamble, including bureaucratic hangups and shifting politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cubicle environment is not for everyone and does not always encourage productivity. Greater flexibility around working remotely would help.

    I worked at New Chapter full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the people that at NC are really wonderful. The company offers great benefits, yoga, gardening, healthy snacks and a trip to Costa Rica. The products are ones you can believe in.

    Cons

    The managers and directors are awful at managing people. They demotivate and use scare tactics to get what they want. Several managers were reported to HR for multiple abuses and nothing was ever done. Sad too because the people that complained were wonderful and dedicated employees. Once you cross someone in their inner circle you should pack your bags. It was almost impossible to get promoted unless you were a friend of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house.
