    I worked at Philosophy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    great product. great message. the original idea of philosophy was uplifting and before it's time.

    Cons

    I have never been disrespected on a daily basis by management the way I was while employed with Philosophy during the past 3 years.

    The work environment was stressful and hostile on a daily basis.

    There are no decent processes in place to help you do your job efficiently.

    The company is experiencing huge growing pains after being bought out by an international mega-brand corporation. I would not doubt that the phoenix office will be no more in 2 yrs or less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management: Really take a long, hard look at your mid-level managers. Something is definitely not right there. Your employees that do the "real work" are being disrespected and beaten down by these so-called professionals.

    I worked at Philosophy

    Pros

    The product is amazing. Overpriced - but amazing. The discount and freebies were awesome.

    Cons

    I have never been disrespected on a daily basis by management the way I was while employed with Philosophy.

    The work environment was stressful, sometimes hostile.

    Employees are overworked and given workloads IMPOSSIBLE for one person to handle.

    While employed, the company was bought out by an international mega-brand and experienced MASSIVE growing pains.

    A very disappointing blip in my work history.

    I worked at Philosophy

    Pros

    You get free product (rejects or returns from department stores).

    Cons

    Several levels of management need to be let go. When the company was small, leadership three probably was appropriate but they need stronger leaders who lead by example and aren't all over the place. Need to replace CFO , Director of Accounting, CEO. VP of Supply Chain was added and does know what he's doing but he' one of few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention not only to sales and marketing people, but value and interact with all.

    I worked at Philosophy

    Pros

    Philosophy has an amazing corporate company culture. They provide excellent benefits and thorough triaining. Philosophy has a great devoted fan base.

    Cons

    Boutiques have gona downhill since mid 2009 due to change in management. Stores experienced complete turn over and all new management is not good representation of the integrity of the company. Disconnect among corporate and boutiques.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-instill the spirit of the company and find individuals who better embody the "grace" of it.
