    Pros

    Great people and company culture. Everyone that I worked with took their work seriously and wanted the best for the company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company has struggled to latch on to a future roadmap and seems to be lacking of a true direction, making it unstable as a secure work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus. Get back to the basics. Listen to those that are in the weeds and understand the ins and outs of the business.

    Pros

    Staff and most management are great people, love their jobs, and try to create and contribute to a positive atmosphere. Pay in many areas is very competitive

    Cons

    Layoffs, job eliminations often, unexpected and out of the blue are really counter to the "family" atmosphere and values that are constantly preached. Hard to feel secure when your "family" members are always disappearing with no notice.
    Business processes are lacking, financial forecasting continues to be awful, which leads to constant reactionary measures. There are a lot of politics in upper management

    Advice to Management

    Start to run things like a big company, which includes embracing corporate behaviors and maybe having your employees face the harsh reality that it's a job and not always fun and games, which makes the turnover easier to deal with.

    Pros

    Results are proportional to effort. Treat it like a business and it can be everything you need. Incentives are marvelous, free and reduced cost bags, always on point regarding fashion trends. The friendships you make are wonderful, the support from home office every time I have needed them is wonderful. Consultant support is excellent with redesigned website and ordering system.

    Cons

    If you think it will be easy, think again. Running your own business is hard work, and has many challenges along the way. It's your business and if you treat it like one and have the discipline to devote a little time every day you can be successful. As the products are made overseas, you are at the mercy of shipping process. Like many companies we were impacted by the west coast work slow down last December. Since that time there have been no issues.

    Advice to Management

    Contine adding experts to fill in knowledge gaps; communicate issues promptly to the field.
