    Mac is the best leader I've ever worked with

    Pros

    Culture. The company puts a strong emphasis on friendship with your coworkers. There's a plethora of opportunities to get to know the people you work with, even with the office locations being separated. Everyone in the company seems to be extremely smart and driven. People work hard but at the same time are very chill and understanding. By far the best part of working for Balsam is Mac Harmon. He's an incredible leader and leads by example, he puts a lot of trust in his employees and genuinely cares about them. I've never met a more charismatic people person in my life.

    Cons

    Part of the extremely smart and driven side is stubbornness. Because they've analyzed the situation or have a good sense of the idea, many individuals seem to not want to accept other solutions. Mac seems to be handing off the reins more and more; this is obviously necessary because of the size/growth of Balsam, but it seems to be hurting the company. It feels as though maybe he's focusing on the wrong parts as a leader.

    Friendly supportive work environment, awesome location, valuable experience, and Caltrain accessible.

    The design work was pretty repetitive, currently difficult to land a full-time design job at Balsam.

    Pros

    A perfect balance between a fun company culture, and a devoted team striving to succeed every day. I believe the most important thing in a job is to enjoy going to work, at Balsam Brands I have enjoyed each and every day. Great company benefits and a focus on personal development.

    Cons

    The growing pains of a start up company are no longer, as Balsam Brands is making a name for itself. The adjustment to make is working for a company with high seasonality.

    Pros

    Very positive work experience during my time at Balsam. I have had the privilege to know the team for a very long time and the culture of the company continues to stay the same. Everyone here truly enjoys working with each other. The CEO, Thomas Harman has a great heart and cares about all of his employees. We can feel this everyday when we come to work!

    Cons

    Overall benefits are great, however, in comparison to other big companies in the Bay Area, Balsam does not provide certain things such as: free food, cash bonuses.

    Pros

    Excellent environment to work in and it's diverse and the company makes sure that its employees are well taken care of.

    Cons

    There are a lot of good things that I can say about Balsam but if there's one thing that needs to be improve is salary increase rate of employees.
