    Pros

    Get to design clothes, bags and shoes and have your own website for free

    Cons

    Sales can be slow. Have to promote and market your shop to get visitors to your site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give up. Market and promote your website as much as possible.

    Spreadshirt has potential but poor management is a major drawback.

    Pros

    Non-management co-workers provide a supportive environment and quality banter. Excellent opportunity to gain critical skills for a successful career.

    Cons

    The management acts aggressively, hindering the overall performance of the team. Team efforts are rarely reinforced or recognized. Growth opportunities are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The US team should have the same benefits as HQ in Germany and management roles should be reviewed to improve overall moral.

    Pros

    Great location in Downtown Boston, opportunities to travel and a discount on products.

    Cons

    Inexperienced and old fashioned managers are not willing to look at modern proven sales processes. The office is deathly silent, with any noise or conversation being seen as lack of productivity.

    Everyone has the title 'Manager' so it really means nothing in this company. No one is really managing anyone, although there is often a battle of egos to watch.

    Sales takes on a new meaning here, with 90% being done via email and the remaining 10% conducted on the phone whilst hidden in the back room so as not to disturb the very fussy VP of Sales (a title that he seems to have no experience in). It's probably the most awkward workplace I've been in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in a new strategy, clean out the VP and Director of Sales in the Boston office for people that have talent in these areas.

    Pros

    fun busy friendly enviroment that was wonderful to work for hard work makes a buisness grow i absolutly loved it there at s.s

    Cons

    lack of communication,should be hardwork and teamwork, being letgo over providing teamwork and being thrown into a job and told to do it the fastest easiest way with the same out come, and being let go for so they said not following procedure and for helping coworkers when teamworks a motto,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hardwork should account for something not giving any time to fix a situation not just instantly letting go because your good fit. and if things are a procedure to have the trainers have a guide paper written 2 follow. and petty coworkers should be counsuled if they have personality issues.to get the complete picture of the situation before letting someone go without good cause
