    I Wish they could've stayed in NYC

    Advice to Management

    Look to old OG bauble employee for promotions before hiring outside help. If there still there they must be doing something right..

    I worked at BaubleBar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some nice people. Good location. Easy commute.

    Cons

    Company is trying so hard to be cool but everyone is paranoid. There is no one to vent to. No HR. The office culture sucks. Such a strange and strained atmosphere. Trying to be fun but it feels forced and there is no transparency in regard to figures or how well the company is doing. No real structure or reasons to stay. Everyone talks about ‘when it was good’ a year or so ago but that doesn’t help new people.

    Advice to Management

    Just be honest. Don’t expect us to work 24/7 without knowing what we’re going to get out of it. Too many people here are worried they are going to be fired for no reason. It doesn’t help to see that the leadership team are as paranoid as the main workforce.

    I worked at BaubleBar full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good coworkers Relaxed work environment I enjoyed working here for the most part until I was laid off and the company seems to continue to shrink since.. not sure what is going on over there.

    Cons

    Uncertain future Unorganized Long hours Not much upward movement The company has been cutting corners to save money including cutting people. Not sure how much longer they can last it will definitely be harder to improve anything if they keep downsizing when everyone is already overworked as is. The company definitely needs to make a big change to stay relevant. Also needs more employees to do so which they can not...

    Advice to Management

    Need more communication from higher ups and visibility into company goals. Involve your manger and lower level employees in bigger conversations.. it will help feel like a more inclusive work environment and only work out for you benefit. I often found out information when it was little too late since timelines are already tight as is. I would have liked to be more involved in bigger picture for my own benefit and for...

    Pros

    Hard to think of any unless free coffee and snacks are your thing. To the company's credit, they do have some loyal employees that toil for 10+ hours daily to keep the lights on. And you get a respectable 401k and full health insurance, albeit the deductible is high.

    Cons

    They can't pay their bills, they're losing money, vendors are refusing to work with them, and the investors are ready to pull the plug on the whole thing. Their solution is to spend money they don't have on an office facelift even though employees are racing for the door.

    Advice to Management

    You've heard it before from people at all levels, either step down or sell to the next offer you get. You don't have much time before you become another Gilt, Nasty Gal, or Claire's.

    I worked at BaubleBar full-time

    Pros

    Bagel-Mondays, Ice-Cream Wednesdays and regular happy hours with cheap wine and cheap beer on them.

    Cons

    There is not enough free bagels, cheap wine, near beer and free ice-cream to say that it is worth working at Bauble bar. Here are other reasons to just stay away. -This company is full of politics and Micromanagers. -Lack of Growth - You will never be able to fully utilized your skills. If you are looking for growth in a real company look elsewhere. - Unprofessional work environment: Despite the corporate...

    I worked at BaubleBar full-time

    Pros

    The business model is basically make jewelry in China then ship it here and sell it online. The twist being they speed up the cadence at which new products are added and removed. There are a lot of different aspect to the company so it's hard to be too specific. There's the warehouse and logistics side, the customer service side, the product side and the tech side. I worked with tech so I'll stick to that. - You...

    Cons

    I should start with this- THEY GOT HACKED AND LOST ALL EMPLOYEE TAX DATA. My SSN, name, income? all in the hands of an outside party. The letter they sent basically said "that sucks! good luck" and was signed by the COO because that's the kind of leadership you get from the founders. Now, I am going to try really hard to leave that out of my review as best I can. That totally sucked but it happened after I left so...

    Advice to Management

    Drop the startup facade! Just admit to what you are and you'll attract candidates that feel more comfortable in that work environment. Instead you attract people expecting a loft office with a pingpong table and flat management structure. Own your corporate roots and you'll have a lot more success recruiting.
