    Pros

    Free healthy coconut water and fun people to work with!

    No raises or commission, management was okay.. did not get a good vibe all the time. They did try to appreciate hard work but not everyone got noticed in my opinion

    I worked at Vita Coco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working for the #1 coconut water brand in the country - I was (still am) very passionate for this product -- it really is a great brand.

    Cons

    I experienced a lot of change in management -- not sure what it is like now, I do know it is very much like working for red bull.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Vita Coco as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are friendly & they have an awesome team atmosphere. The people at Vita Coco are as loyal to the brand as the consumers.

    Cons

    Networking with distributors are improving as new techniques arise. The incentives have come along way for all employees to enjoy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is not one 'right' way to manage. Set clear expectations, give rationale & understanding, & give positive or constructive feedback.

    I have been working at Vita Coco full-time

    Pros

    Seems like a place to grow your career, but that ship has sailed. The company's growth is limited because coconut water is simply a phase. Remember pomegranate juice? Remember Acai?

    Cons

    The most unorganized company I've ever worked for. Constant problems
     regarding sales, and shipments, and even administrative tasks. If you're
     willing to work 45+ hours a week for 35-45K, then I guess take it for
     the experience. Turnover is extremely high because of the low pay and
     micromanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your talent... Employee turnover hurts a company.
