    I worked at Daymon Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company in every way to work for. The best co-workers, supervisors and the day to day job was always fun and challenging. I loved every minute I worked this company.

    Cons

    No cons. It was always positive.

    Advice to Management

    Compton office: Keep doing what you're doing. Corporate in Stamford, take another look at the bigger picture going forward. An important avenue where the client achieves their bottom line, is through In-store and regional education presentations on their private label, via training/educational positions.
