Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Nearly impossible to think of anything; overall a horrible, depressing, soul-crushing place to work. Only pro is free coffee, which is needed in order to work endless hours!

Cons

Long hours, zero recognition, incompetent or horrible managers employees rewarded, poor salaries and benefits, arrogant rock-star-wanna-be CEO, you only count at this company if you are a friend of the CEO; otherwise you are worked like a dog then spit on. Senior team is concerned with one thing: delivering ridiculous (and fudged) numbers to Wall St. So little employee appreciation or any sort of recognition that it is laughable. Managers are very light on praise but very willing to criticize, and not constructively. Employee complaints about abusive managers are ignored. Business/financial practices very questionable. Can't keep talent because of the back-stabbing, horrible, bitchy atmosphere. Warning to anyone considering working here...don't! Hold out for something else; this company sucks and has a long reputation of being a miserable, crap place to work.

Advice to Management

Um, seriously, a lame holiday party thrown for the first time in 4 years coincidentally because your publicist landed you an interview with the NY Times about how you inspire your employees and foster camaraderie?? For real?? Pathetic!! And why does a CEO need a publicist anyway? If you paid more attention to how miserable your employees are and what a crappy place your company is to work, AND you actually cared enough to do something to improve things, you wouldn't have to PAY someone to make you look like a competent leader!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Depending on the location- the peer groups are excellent to work with.
    The Boulder Celestial Seasonings office is a great example and much envied at our office.
    I would work for anyone in Boulder- because their leadership seems strong.
    Other locations are not as fortunate.

    Cons

    Very little concern for line staff and middle managment.
    overworked, overwhelmed and underpaid employees.
    very basic business decisions (staffing, pricing, contracts, ect) can take months if not years to get through the red tape.
    not willing to invest in an infastructure to support their rapd growth plan.

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in the technical side of your company. Working on a dos based system at your level of business is ridiculous.
    Someone should ponder why business that are thriving when you buy them- quickly disintergrate under Hain's management.
    There should be some back to basic managerial training. There should be some SOP's established to allow people to get what they need from the upper managment folks.
