I worked at Bioworld Merchandising full-time (More than 5 years)
Employee are showered with appreciation gifts and events
Creative and driven
Artistically open to ideas from anyone
Motivated and hungry
Thriving in an environment when a lot of big name companies are folding
Working with our counterparts in other offices worldwide
Working with smart, talented individuals
Constant restructuring due to growth
Constant remodeling for the same reasons
Desks and chairs are uncomfortable enough to mention in a Glassdoor review :-/
Giant, loud, open work environment that feels like a high school gymnasium
The favoritism is real and evident and at times detrimental
The pay is not good but sustainable
Procedures are constantly being implemented with little regard to the big picture
A lot of strong personalities to deal with as you climb the ladder
The work life balance is just atrocious (long days, evenings, some weekends)
Advice to Management
Continue working on the structure so your people can work more productively.
Remember that you can't increase sales goals without addressing the infrastructure. It's causing everyone to have to work ridiculous hours to make it happen.
Keep up the employee appreciation activities. They are working.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bioworld Merchandising (Irving, TX) in February 2017.
Was contacted immediately by HR and set up an interview for the following week. Questions were generic and overall the interview was kind of uncomfortable. They are quick to respond though. The pay for this job is between 27-30k.
