I worked at Lifetime Products full-time (More than 3 years)
Effortless work. Lenient about what time you come in and leave. You can take a day off whenever.
Oh boy where should I start. To get the basic equipment to do your job correctly is a complete fight, often resulting in being turned down while the chosen favorites get whatever they need/want without fuss. If you are looking to gain any skills to further your career forget about it. You are never allowed to give any input or creative ideas unless it is an idea from the higher ups. One thing to know is there is a good ol' boys club that makes all decisions and gets special treatment. One example of this is a while back everyone in the company got moved over to a new salary structure but this specific group stayed in a bracket where they are extremely over paid and underworked with multiple bonuses while the rest of us fight for an insignificant, tiny raise every 3 years. You could have performed at the top of your game every day for a whole year and you will get the same 6% the guy next to you gets when they only put in the bare minimum. The top brass completely disregard the staff of professionals they have hired and only use their ideas. They once hired an outside marketing team and spent thousands of dollars for advice and direction to completely disregard their input and do the opposite of what was recommended. There is no budget given to actually market the company unless you count the hilariously awful music video one of those "good ol' boys" had the idea for. Seriously? Froggy Fresh? Some punk kid that makes music videos playing a character of an uneducated hillbilly and rakes in the dough of people that try to stay relevant by paying for flash in the pan trends without actually thinking how it would propel the company all while high fiving their bros and talking about how great they were during their high school football days. Oh dont forget about the complete disregard for the opinion of the creative team when making marketing decisions. The project managers do everything in their power to skirt around the creative team and make all their own "creative" decisions that 99% of the time are completely awful and was embarrassing to be a part of. And boy oh boy. The higher ups in marketing. What gems. Started at the company as a customer service worker and somehow slithered their way to the top under the shadow of a top brass in marketing. They have zero education or training of any sort to be in the position they are in. Never gives input. Constantly rolls their eyes at ideas to try to establish their post of condisention czar. Whenever they are asked questions they divert the question to an actual professional so they dont have to reveal that they dont actually know anything. The only thing you hear from them are copy and paste sections from business books that they find online. I could go on and on about how your not paid what your worth, your talked down to, your replaceable, how there are either 5 people who are doing the job of one person, etc. But I think you get the idea. If you happen to ignore my experience and get hired anyway I wish you the best of luck. Get ready for a fight to try and make a difference just to be told to fall in line. Pass this one up.
Advice to Management
Fire all upper management and start fresh. Get rid of the good ol' boys club and use actual professionals.
