    Pros

    The company's future looks bright, considering executive and management setbacks. The venture capital firm that purchased the company has been organizing several large acquisitions in the industry. They are making investments for the long haul.

    Cons

    Executive and management turnover is at an all-time high. Employee benefits and incentives are slim to none, slashing retention to a minimum. Lack of conventional executive structure causes confusion and Wild West politics in the office. Recent executive leadership has focused the company's efforts on quick, empty revenue rather than investing in employees and quality. This may be at an end since a large recent executive turnover, but it has been very apparent in the past several years. Accountability is virtually non-existent, and workplace culture has been destroyed, regardless of recent efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability and incentives to retain valuable employees. Invest money and time back into the things that will take the company forward: employees, quality and innovation.

    Stop putting so much effort into the marketing race against competitors, and stop spinning your wheels and pushing volume.

    I worked at Sleep Innovations

    Pros

    They pay well, give you autonomy to manage your team...

    Cons

    Lack of leadership at the senior management level creates Wild West style politics...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well the CFO and CEO have both been banished so to the PE owners - hire well at those positions and clear out the dead wood in New Jersey...

    I worked at Sleep Innovations full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Salary
    All Health Insurance 100% paid by company

    Cons

    Org Chart changes on a weekly if not daily basis
    Management doesn't listen to it's customers, hires deplorable upper management teams that are extremely ineffective and know nothing about conducting $50MM+ accounts.
    Financially volatile: Frequent bankruptcies and venture capital buyouts . . .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the original formula that Michael Fux, the founder, perfected. Quit making promises to major retailers that you cannot keep. Value your employees and the feedback they bring back from their accounts.
