Employee Review

  1. 3.0
    Former Employee, more than 10 years

    Once a great company. Horribly mismanaged. Management either disconnected or fake & vengeful. Very cliquish.

    Pros

    Great benefits and work/life balance. Generous product discount and onsite restaurant. Generous 401K possibilities and corporate discounts. Enjoyed working with my peers and direct reports.

    Cons

    Too much disingenuous "fake it til you make it" attitude and butt kissing in the corporate office. Worked with a handful of managers with integrity and good intentions. In my experience, most managers, directors and VPs (and above) "manage UP," looking out for their own self interest rather than looking out for their direct reports. Gossip, backstabbing and drama are par for the course. Difficult to know whom to trust. Everyone is distrustful of HR. Culture has slowly dissipated since Mary Kay Ash's passing.

    Pros

    Got autonomy to own a project.

    Cons

    Lots of hours unpaid. No notice of when the contract would end. Expected to work as many projects as possible for little to no benefits. No room for growth.
