Pros

Talented people, fun brands, good products

Cons

Senior management is does not allow people to have flex time, makes people feel guilty about taking vacation and sick days, and expects its employees to work far more than 40 hours/week. Though low salaries are billed as the trade-off for family flexibility, that is not in fact the case. Further, many senior managers do not allow the people that report to them to shine.

Advice to Management

Senior managers need to work harder to allow employees to have more flex time; if the work is getting done, vacation time shouldn't be a problem; nor should face time.

    Pros

    Such a great company to work for! There is lots of room for growth and learning. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun and challenging environment.

    Cons

    It can be hard to click with some of the women in the office. It's a bit like high school when it comes to making friends. Everyone is generally nice, some can be a bit passive.

    Advice to Management

    Work on having more team building activities. If it is required it might force the people that refuse to split up from their core friend group to socialize.
