    Advice to Management

    To keep the great talent you have cultivated inform your employees of their future career potential and opportunities, and communicate the structure/goals so that both management and employee are on same page for what needs to be done in order to succeed. Increased salary would be nice, too...

    Pros

    Great team members, really nurturing environment, culture and values, the company is still small so voice will be heard.

    I have been working at Bonobos full-time

    Pros

    Innovative and transparent from top to bottom. They really look to find what works best both from a customer and employee standpoint. Fun environment with a positive culture.

    Cons

    Still a young company looking to create more structure and build from that base. There is still a lot of room for growth and as a company are learning as they go.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to change and not get used to doing something the same way. The company changes constantly and that includes standard operating procedures so don't be afraid to continue changing and flexing with the changes ahead.

    I worked at Bonobos part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere. I loved working here and even got a few of my friends hired and promoted into their best salespeople!

    Cons

    They illegally fire employees by saying the employees did grotesque things that never actually occurred. They will ruin your reputation and scar you with the dramatic lies they come up with in order to fire you. I've never once been fired from a job until I worked here. Get it together.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing your best employees. :)
