    Pros

    The idea of their product goes beyond just a shoe line, but centered around the art culture and creating lasting relationships. The people are friendly, outgoing, and even though I was just an intern, all of them made the effort to get to know me and what I do. They hold a lot of cool / fun events centered around art and artists like gallery exhibitions and art battles! As for their brand identity, even though they are an up and coming company, they have everything pretty ironed out.

    Cons

    The hours were hard because I sat in front of a computer all day (but hey, that's what designers do!) but honestly, it was such an overall good experience and I have absolutely nothing bad to say.

    Pros

    - The discounts on the shoes - First look at the designs in store - Very chill atmosphere - Customers are nice and easy to talk to if they are willing to talk

    Cons

    - Not a lot of inventory - Slow at times - Small group of employees, so you tend to work alone at times - Not a lot of things to do in store, so bring something to keep you busy

    Pros

    A fast-paced work environment constantly changing and improving. A well manicured team culture and office environment. A great mission and company as a whole.

    Cons

    The start-up life requires a lot of hours and challenging work, but if that's your thing then this is a great place to work.

    Pros

    The shoes are great. Much of the focus of the brand is based on the artists. There seems to be a very tight culture between the people working there.

    Cons

    There was very minimal orientation which led to not knowing 90% of the team. The environment was isolating to someone woking part time.

    Deceiving

    Pros

    My immediate supervisor was amazing and really supportive. I believed in the brand and liked the shoes. Most people in the office are friendly.

    Cons

    The CEO and upper management know nothing about fashion or how the industry works. They made serious business mistakes that led to a lot of team members being laid off.

    Pros

    The majority of the team (or what's left of it) is great to work with and extremely smart.

    Cons

    The members in leadership couldn't decide on a direction and wouldn't trust the work of their team. That lead to hiring outside help and a group of people getting let go, which could very well happen again.

    Pros

    Fun people, fun events, cool mission if the management could actually stand by it instead of swaying to the wind of whatever is popular.

    Cons

    A few duds on the management team, casual sexism wherein the rules apply differently to people who possess a Y chromosome.

    Pros

    Fun culture and great people

    Cons

    Not great for career development, pay wasn't good, still in 'startup phase' where they ask a lot and don't give much in return.
