    I worked at Branders.com full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid culture, good people, great industry. Branders paid well on the spectrum, and offered great tools to get the job done

    Cons

    Lacked overall vision, unless that vision was just to sell the company. Support was whittled away to where sales folks just had to do it all themselves

    Advice to Management

    Could've dominated the market with superior tools and presence, instead you missed a chance by continuing to search for silver bullets that didn't exist


  2. "sales rep"

    I have been working at Branders.com full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Outsources workers from India (Graphic Artists) and Philippines (Sales and Customer Service)

    Cons

    Fast turnover on people. Fires people like the plague. Cheats people of their money by very high unaffordable expedited shipping costs, when it fact it's only cheap. Promises rush orders but never really deliver. Quality of items most of the time are not good thus receiving a lot of redos for these misprinted items.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit to staff who had been with you longer. Loyalty is not easily bought.

    I have been working at Branders.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary. No micromanagement. A lot of freedom to prioritize and pursue goals as you see fit. Helpful, friendly and welcoming colleagues. A solid foundation of success to build on.

    Cons

    The company is currently going through growing pains. There is lots of opportunity for professional growth but in the meantime there are some organizational challenges to overcome.

    Advice to Management

    Ramp up development throughput. Implement best practices across the entire organization. Add a director layer between the C-level and mid-level managers to run day-to-day operations and free up top-level execs to focus on strategy other than tactics.
