I worked at Paladin as a contractor for less than a year
Pros – The contract advertised is for a large retailer who has been around for ages. Contract copywriters, especially, up and comers can gain some really valuable experience from a staff well-positioned to offer training and meaningful edits. Great resume builder.
Cons – Long-term, anyone who is creative or wants to continue growing will get bored writing about he same apparel day in and day out. Unpredictable workloads. You are either cramming to finish 50-60 descriptions per day or more, or there is no work at all, and management tells you to go home or not come in at all for weeks at a time. Not a great situation for someone who depends on a steady paycheck.
Advice to Senior Management – The team managers are great people who build up their staff and contract help as much as they can. They try their best to solve the challenges and logistics issues that are completely out of their control.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Paladin full-time for more than a year
Pros – No pros to report, company is very disorganized.
Cons – Very high turnover of workforce both in the office staff and technical staffing, approximately 25% turnover. Management is very unorganized and unwilling to embark into new technology or consider new ideas to streamline processes. The company ownership does not want to change and the software systems do not integrate, information has to be data entered into 2-3 different systems. Management is unwilling to update their computer systems and inventory tracking systems.
Advice to Senior Management – Upgrade systems and implement strategic planning. Be the boss and not the friend to your employees.
