Pros

smart and driven teammates who cared about each other
free food for the first few months

Cons

It's a sweatshop run by a family who believed in slave driving employees.

The company is dying - yet the family blamed all the employees "hired the wrong people".

Employees should have spoken up much earlier instead of enduring all the hardship and abuse for so long.

Advice to Management

The whole family screwed up the company and they owe an apology to all 30+ former employees. Stop blaming employees because the whole world has learned the truth by now.

    Pros

    The idea is amazing and hearthwarming. The execution - poor.. Not surprised the company is going south~ I wish they (the management) were more open to suggestions and didn't run the company like a sweatshop - its proven it doesn't work. They might get funds to keep going, but their best fund is the talant that believes in the idea and works hard... Treat your workers with respect and make them happy - things will go much better!

    Cons

    The execution - poor - Can't expect people to renounce their life and familly...

    Pros

    The original company goals are admirable
    The employees are smart and fun, extremely talented
    Great location
    Great ideas and creativity amongst employees, but need to be better cultivated
    Individual tasks relevant to job description are fun and challenging.

    Cons

    No PTO whatsoever--> quick burnout
    Management treatment and administration policies vary widely from employee to employee
    Lack of communication and clear vision on part of CEO/management
    No sense of balance between work and personal life, extremely intrusive.
    Needs more focused art/design direction.
    Tasks are heavily micro managed
    CEO's roles are spread way too thin; seems to be from lack of trust in senior staff

    Advice to Management

    You need to believe that your employees will work hard and passionately regardless of your over management. Refocus company goals and solidify team direction and product design.
