    Pros

    Best decision to come here. The leadership listen, open to hearing divergent thoughts, and people are talented and smart. The future is bright - very excited to be a part of the company's growth.

    Cons

    So much work it piles on. Would be best if there was more planning to ensure proper resourcing and delivery.

    The waste of potential is such a shame.

    Pros

    - Fantastic people. For the most part, everyone is incredibly caring, eager to help, and smart as can be. It's sincere, and that's rare to find. - US leadership is diverse, approachable, and speaks to inspiring changes for the company. - The quality of content/products is top notch. Everything is informed by research and there are incredible graphic designers. - PTO is competitive and 401K matching is nice, though not that impressive.

    Cons

    - Huge UK and US divide. UK hosts all innovation direction, brand development, digital transformation, etc. The US, on the other hand, is the revenue generator for the business, always out performing UK sales. This creates a painful gap where UK has opportunities for growth and US feels like an undervalued churn of work. - Pay and bonus. The US salaries are below market rate across the board. The bonus, part of boost to low pay, is extremely stratified with company goals. This cuts the bonus percentage a lot from the sticker price. - No annual raises. Budget conversations aren't even lined up with performance cycles. Raises come when you get a promotion. To get a promotion, you need to do 3 other people's role until you burnout. - No practicing what's preached. There are guides to reference for information, but not in a central location. No formal in role training. Sink or swim - low performance is not an option; lay offs happen. - Cross team collaboration is painful, though the business, to its credit, openly admits this and is working on it with operational excellence.
