Working at Balsam Brands has been an exceptional and unique experience so far. From day one, I felt welcomed, valued and encouraged to share my ideas. Balsam Brands does a great job at creating a... supportive work environment where I have felt safe and empowered to contribute to the success of my team and the company. I love Balsam Brands culture. Our purpose is to Create Joy Together. We are encouraged to explore new technology like generative AI. It's a place where collaboration, innovation, and creativity thrive. The leadership team fosters a culture of transparency and open communication, which encourages employees to bring their best selves to work every day. One thing that impresses me about Balsam Brands is the emphasis on professional development. Balsam Brands invests in its employees' growth and provides ample opportunities for learning and advancement. From training programs and continuous learning benefits to internal mobility and opportunities to transfer to different departments, Balsam Brands actively encourages continuous growth and supports career progression. This commitment to development is refreshing and has helped me broaden my skill set and stay at the forefront of industry trends. The company's dedication to work-life balance is commendable. Balsam Brands understands that happy and fulfilled employees contribute to a positive work environment and overall success. The flexible work arrangements, supportive policies, and emphasis on personal well-being have allowed me to maintain an overall healthy work-life integration, enabling me to perform at my best while also taking care of my personal commitments.
While it's a plus that Balsam Brands is committed to staying privately run, it means there are no stock options or RSU's. Therefore, total compensation may be considered to be on the lower side by... some, especially those individuals who index primarily on cash in overall compensation. While Balsam Brands offers a range of excellent benefits and fulfillment, it's worth noting that the compensation package may be comparatively lower than some other companies in the industry. Additionally, the absence of stock options may be a consideration for individuals who prioritize equity participation as part of their overall compensation. It's important to highlight that the company's compensation philosophy is consistent across all levels. It is also worth noting that Balsam Brands has recently hired a Director of Compensation. To me, this addition shows a strong commitment to being more competitive in terms of total compensation and to ensure fair, equitable, compelling pay for all Brandits.
Enjoyed working here, had a great experience, placement was good, manager agreeable, work interesting and easy to learn
No real growth without changing companies, wouldn't want to do more than a year unless they looked at wage increases, position growth, etc.
