    I have been working at Silhouette America full-time

    Pros

    1. Freedom to do something I love every day.
    2. Fun challenges, tackled by a tight-knit group.
    3. Opportunity to be a part of a successful organization on the rise.
    4. Small-company feel, with the ability to see contributions make an immediate impact.

    Cons

    1. Occasional limitation of resources that a larger company might have at its disposal; some employees have to wear a couple hats.
    2. As with many young companies, a clearly defined culture and direction are still forming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust in the people you hire--they are talented and skilled. Be transparent, so that you won't face as much scrutiny. Understand and embrace the cultural differences between the parent company and its subsidiaries.

    I have been working at Silhouette America full-time

    Pros

    Fun environment - the president and his posse live far away so the atmosphere can be nice

    Cons

    The president and his favorites are all Japanese and are not shy about their disrespect of white people. The Japanese employees earn more, have more benefits, and have more power and opportunity. You'll be frustrated to work here if that sort of thing bothers you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to someone new and eradicate all its parent company's influence.

    I worked at Silhouette America

    Pros

    Small workplace, friendly co-workers. laid back atmosphere.
    Managers are very accommodating for work hours and time off.
    Open door policy is nice as well.

    Cons

    No real senior management. Owned by parent company that doesn't seem too interested in the needs of Silhouette. Not much of an opportunity for growth.
    Not a professional atmosphere, but this can be a good thing for some.
