    I have been working at Bare International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work from home opportunity available. No overtime paid. One giant ponzi scheme.

    Cons

    They are a fraud company. The company is one big ponzi scheme but were the employees are the pons. You will be hired, lied to on the phone and then you will be kept on board to do a lot of work during your 60 days, once you hit the time to get lawful benefits you are cut off and fired for no reason. The employer will create a fake issue and then fire you based on nothing. So even if you take the job. Be on the...

    I have been working at Bare International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great culture: very "family-oriented" as everyone is a team player and genuinely cares about each other (one person's success is everyone's success); supervisors are invested in professional growth which leads to increase in opportunities (ex. several Directors started as individual Project Managers and worked their way up); down-to-earth executives are business-focused without being oblivious to the rest of the team

    Cons

    No true cons that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Bare is full of happy, tenured colleagues who work hard and well as a team. Management is doing something right as I continue to see the effort in retaining and growing with hard working, solutions-focused, and caring individuals.

    Pros

    No pro's for this company

    Cons

    When starting at Bare International I was extremely excited to start however it turned out to be my worst career experience. No proper on boarding or training, poor benefits and false information was provided by HR. The pay is very low for the work you do and they are very disorganized. After being emotionally stressed due to my condescending supervisor I wrote a letter of resignation to the company. After applying to...

    Seems our initial reply did not take. It is disheartening that you did not have a great working experience with Bare, which is rare and unlikely because as an organization we have gone out of our way to provide a healthy and collaborative work environment for all Bare employees. ...

    I worked at Bare International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's great that the Evaluators, also know as Independent Contractors (IC), are having overall positive experiences with BARE as the company is a good MSP.

    Cons

    A lot of the reviews on Glassdoor are being made by Independent Contractors who do not actually work for BARE and therefore are not employees and have no true knowledge of the work environment or management (good or bad). As a result, the ratings are skewed.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good overall. However, HR likes to respond to "negative" assessments; likewise, they should be honest and let everyone know that IC's have created a lot of their reviews and not BARE employees.
