    I have been working at Cloud B full-time

    Pros

    Company culture is relaxed and family oriented. Management is very hands on and listens to employees. Many of the employees have been with the company for many years, some more than 10+ years. The products are great, so many loyal customers that love the brand.

    Cons

    Could be a pro or a con, small company environment. Company has gone through a rough patch with a lot of competition but coming around.

    Pros

    Cloud b culture: diverse, relaxed and creative. Senior management has an open-door policy and everyone gets along well. The company is continuously rolling out innovative and adorable products and is acquiring more and more fame as luxury brand. Additionally, Cloud b donates its time to organizations that help children in need. It's a pleasure to work for a company that does some good in the world!

    Cons

    The commute is occasionally difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Cloud B full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful products, a very good team now on every level, more transparent and open management now, things are looking up. People are encouraged to share ideas and be creative and positive. We like it here.

    Cons

    Every business has problems - nothing is perfect. Some ex-employees are quite bitter and appear to have an ax to grind. Because things have changed a lot here in the past couple of months, I would say that most of the past postings are outdated and are no longer accurate descriptions of the current environment. How would a past employee really know what's going on now if they no longer work here? Many ex-employees also now work for competitors, so I am somewhat suspicious of that type of posting as self-serving at best.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your nose to the grindstone and keep the open door policy going.

    I worked at Cloud B full-time

    Pros

    Product is great but needs more innovative product to maintain its market share. Great presence at the ABC Kids Expo

    Cons

    There's no organization and upper management doesn't know how to make it happen !

    Advice to Management

    Start from the beginning once again and hire people that know what to do. Cloud b is loosing its market search and no one seems to notice. Stop the bleeding.

    I have been working at Cloud B full-time

    Pros

    Location is quiet and easy to get to

    Cons

    In my short time so far with Cloud B, upper management has come across as very sneaky and conniving. When I first arrived I was warned by co-workers to watch out for such things. So far it seems to be a revolving door of sad employees. Much of whom are too scared to question anything or too comfortable/lazy to bother.

    Advice to Management

    Overall the company seems to be dying slowly and is run by people who have no clue.

    I worked at Cloud B (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company had two things going for it in past years- Sleep Sheep and Twilight Turtle, which carried the brand to success, but unfortunately, due to the lack of ingenuity and imagination in product development, the brand is really losing it's cool/trendy factor.

    Cons

    1. High Turnover- within the last two years roughly 15 people have quit or left the company, and as many were fired or laid off. In a company with around 60 employees, that's nearly a 50% turnover rate in 2 years.
    2. Bad Management- The management team is very unprofessional. Certain individuals are dishonest, passive aggressive, rude, patronizing, openly hostile with both internal and external parties, and have no leadership skills. The majority of the C-level managers are inept in basic business and refuse to the listen to the advise of the professionals they hire, who are experts in their respective fields.
    3. Unhealthy work environment. Because of the above reasons, staff is always under pressure to fill the gap that management's failures have created, leaving employees stressed, frustrated, and frankly, looking for other jobs.
    4. Company health- I wouldn't give the company more than a year before it folds or is forced to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the Board of Directors: Get rid of the current C Level Team- they have the Titanic aimed right at the iceberg despite the crew's attempts to steer the ship in another direction.

    Pros

    Very difficult to express any pros. Probably product would be the number one.

    Cons

    So many it would be challenging to list them all. Dishonest and selfish would be the best descriptives.

    Advice to Management

    If there was any chance they would listen I would suggest advice. No chance here.

    Pros

    - The newness of the company allows for freedom
    - The product reflects a true desire to heal and help
    - Although working long and hard coworkers are kind and compassionate to one another.
    - Diverse and open mix of people
    - Great growth potential

    Cons

    - In honor of fairness and integrity there have been times when unqualified folks have been reluctant to grow but kept in place......Growth in any organization can, by necessity, cause needs for change and new thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lead as you have been. Continue to trust your creative instincts. Continue to be willing to have the courage to grow.
