I have been working at Jodhpuri as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

As an intern in such a small company, you get to do lots and interact with all the employees. You do things like create product presentations, invoice orders, make sales calls, fill out vendor applications, attend meetings, etc.
-Great products and use of product differentiation
-One of the first companies to introduce Reed Diffusers
-One of a kind products like Potpourri Filled Lanterns, Potpourri Filled Wire Forms, unique Moscow Mule Mugs
-VP (Sheila ) is a well versed business woman: business savvy, always trendy, great saleswoman with an impeccable memory
-Employees are a family with the common goal of expanding Jodhpuri
-Decent pay
-Company is very flexible with college students' schedules
-Great college internship

Cons

-Too much micromanaging
-Need a bigger facility. Samples are scattered throughout employees' desks and in the conference room

Advice to Management

-Company Management is inconsistent (For instance, one day you could be told to work with another employee to help them with their work, then the next day you two will be given a lecture on how inefficient it is to have 2 people working on the same job)
-Company President micromanages: President asks EACH employee what they are working on every few HOURS. As a company president he should not have that much involvement in employees' work
-Improve on common goals btwn President & VP.

    Pros

    Everyone else that works there is getting treated just as poorly as you are. If you survive your employment ordeal, you might not cry yourself to sleep every night wondering what it was you did to deserve this fate. That's a bonus, but it's probably because you are drinkiong yourself to sleep. it really is that bad.

    Cons

    there is no leadership, just constant arguing between the own and the sales vp. they have no problem doing anything to make a buck, ethics be damned. you will not get a raise in pay or benefits, so forget that. throw out your job title. they had the IT guy running invoicing and internation receiving paperwork, their art dept head supervising warehouse workers on the production line, the interns design the website. it's a chaotic mess because the owners constantly bicker with each other and use you to do so. constantly yelling at people and calling them stupid, not professional at all.

    Advice to Management

    your employees lack direction because you give them too much to do and spend way too much time talking about every little detail of every little job, then arguing about the cost for three weeks before you finally decide, now that the work is done, htat you won't pay for it and leave some shellshocked sales intern to break the news. you are utterly rediciulous and should just stop trying.
