I worked at ShopLocal as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people. Open knowledge share. Fun culture.

Cons

Being owned by a foreign company sometimes results in attitudes toward corporate culture at odds with some American sensibilities.

    I worked at ShopLocal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Smart senior leadership (Vikram is pretty brilliant!).
    - Genuinely good people in manager roles -- dedicated, loyal, fair, knowledgeable, etc.
    - Very nice coworkers, laid back environment (wear shorts, sandals, etc.)

    Cons

    - Q4 pretty much blows as it's chaos -- retail's bust season
    - You can get called off hours as the internet never closes.
    - It will never be a large company...it's pretty much the same place over the last 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Milk the cows, slay the dogs.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Free coffee and tea (really cheap, not good). A snack drawer that they're really bad about refilling in the last couple of months.

    Cons

    Cancels shifts the day before, usually later in the afternoon. People are always being fired. You never know if you are going in for your last shift.

    Advice to Management

    Treat us like actual human beings worthy of respect.
