    Pros

    * Energetic peers who love the plant space * devoted customer base * unique supply chain needs lead to strong innovation * cross functional opportunities for growth in all areas

    Cons

    As with any startup, there are always opportunities and challenges that pop up; the most successful employees are prepared for that, but it is not for everyone.

    Pros

    Bloomscape the last few months has felt almost like a new company - in a good way! While it was challenging to get to this point, the recent changes to leadership have brought immediate process improvements, transparency, and direction that were needed. You can tell there is an active effort to allow for call-outs, concerns, questions, and new ideas. The communication from top to bottom is now more seamless thanks to efforts across the leadership team. Since we are still a small company you have the opportunity to play a part in each team and really know the business and the decisions behind current/new projects. Just like any start up/small company you have the opportunity to grow in your current role, learn new skills, and move across teams. Bloomscape has always had a flexible work environment, PTO, and often sends small surprises just for fun.

    Cons

    - WFH is not for everyone and can make "connection" more difficult. - Ownership for tasks has been in-flux after the changes in July so some tasks feel forgotten

    A great company on paper but the actions of senior leadership does not match their lip service.

    Pros

    - Discount on plants - Tons of horticultural insight, I personally learned a TON about plants and their behavior - Flexible working options (WFH, in office, etc.) - Unlimited PTO (although it was very challenging to take time off in my role) - A weekly 4 hour block of no meetings - Personally had two very strong & unique managers in my tenure that were invested in my growth

    Cons

    - Poor direction, the different departments at Bloomscape do not have a good sense of direction of what they own. The structural and strategic ownership is lacking & and it was EXTREMELY difficult to get an answer from anyone above the specialist level. - Might be more role specific, but there is an expectation that you will use your own personal device(s) for work. I was expected to use my personal laptop for the first few weeks of onboarding and continue to use my personal phone to call clients, coordinate transportation, serve as a point of contact for deliveries, etc.; receiving no compensation/stipend for this. I inquired about this twice and was told there was no policy in place for a phone or stipend. - Poor financial visibility for the buyer/vendors consistently paid late - there were fall outs due to no standard operating procedure on the purchasing & finance side but it seemed very common in the last few months for vendors to just be paid late with little to no explanation. - Poor work culture due to lack of drive/care: I don't expect a newer company to be established in this area, but while there is a cultural committee in place to work on this, Bloomscape is unable to establish a healthy work culture due to the sheer lack of respect that some employees exhibit to fellow co-workers and stakeholders. There was a culture of overwork and silencing those who spoke against negative aspects of the company culture, which led to an environment of intimidation and fear. - Cross-functional projects between different teams are a nightmare. It seemed like senior leadership was unable to make a decision and projects were ping-ponged between teams with little to no direction. I don't know if it is an ego or personality issue or a sheer lack of understanding, but it should not take months to answer yes/no questions in relation to simple questions. - I wasn't paid for my last week of work initially and had to reach out so see what the issue was. Probably was a rare instance but was a prime example of the lack of respect that the company had for anyone in the specialist role.

    Thank you for the feedback. As you've mentioned, in the last few months we’ve made a lot of changes at Bloomscape including a new org structure and leadership team members. We now have a seasoned Operations leader that has been working hands-on with our Director of People, focusing on employee experience and engagement. We have launched a new set of values and a more transparent bi-weekly townhall. We still have a lot more to do and will continue to work hard to make Bloomscape a great place to work for everyone.
