    Fun work environment - bad pay

    Product Development (Former Employee) Woonsocket, RI

    ProsThe best part of working at Summer Infant, is the people around you. I made close friends while working there. They have a gym and showers onsite, which is a plus. Exposure to many different fields, and learned a ton!

    ConsTerrible pay. No room to move up or be promoted. They hire from the outside rather than promoting from within.

    Unstable work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are no pros to working for this company.

    ConsHiring is based potential workload. When the company achieves its short term goals (the only kind they have), they eliminate positions. This organization is also top heavy from a salary perspective, while salaries for their workforce are extremely low.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace the CEO. He lacks the vision as well as the expertise to take this company forward.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
