    Parking in DTLA (very expensive).

    I worked at Ergobaby full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy product to learn. It was run like a start up but changed to more corporate after the buy out of Orbit Baby.

    Cons

    Go back to the startup feel of the company it's better than the corporate mindset.

    I worked at Ergobaby full-time

    Pros

    - Amazing space for women to thrive under the right management
    - Supportive workplace that is understanding of family needs/ cares about general well being of their employees
    - Upper management is accessible
    - If you are a self starter with the desire to work hard and learn they will let you explore and push your position into new heights.
    - Flexible
    -Great space to establish a career in the baby industry

    Cons

    -The promotion cycle is not clear or competitive within the market
    - Management tends to not shift around and so growth is very limited
    -There is a strong disconnect in the work load of certain employees and this can cause a burnout due to not being promoted/ things falling on them

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to promote and support those under you who are doing good work. It is okay to change your process for a better one.
    Realize that creating a priority structure for those who are in upper management over those who are doing the work creates a negative work environment.

    Pros

    A great CEO who provides good leadership in trying to steer the company to the right direction.

    Cons

    Parking is not covered and is really expensive in downtown LA

    Advice to Management

    Try to empathize more with managers when KPI do not meet up to expectations. Empathize by rolling up your sleeves and help mentor your managers.

    I have been working at Ergobaby full-time

    Pros

    - CEO is fair and accessible; she really cares about the employees
    - great employee events
    - great benefits
    - works to give back to the community
    - relaxed working environment
    - friendly employees
    - casual dress code
    - good for people who take initiative to thrive and learn a lot

    Cons

    - parking in DTLA is expensive (wish they would subsidize or cover the cost)
    - we could all do better at communicating the overall vision

    Advice to Management

    It's great when you let your team know their roles are appreciated! It always helps to have an overview of what the company does as a whole so more communication on that front is helpful. It's definitely a work in progress, but I see the positive changes!

    I worked at Ergobaby full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job was an easy one but the atmosphere was intense and stressful. Unqualified employees brought down the work environment.

    Cons

    The company was acquired and the start up atmosphere was lost. It was so corporate and stuffy after that.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees with the respect that they deserve. Reward performance with monetary compensation.

    I have been working at Ergobaby full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ergobaby has a relaxed and fun office environment. Lots of teamwork and company sponsored events. There have been a lot of new hires and new opportunities as the company continues to grow.

    Cons

    Due to the office ease - it takes a certain personality to thrive here. Independent workers and people who have initiative and drive can be successful here. Otherwise it seems some people get lost in the shuffle.
