    Pros

    The people (excluding clueless senior management)

    Cons

    TV retail is a dying business. Need proof? Look at Evine’s latest quarterly investor release. Year to date, active customers are down 10% (ouch!) along with profit margins and a handful of other stats, including EBITDA. No wonder the company’s share value lost close to 40% in a single day on November 28, 2018.

    Meanwhile, the clueless executive team fails to get the business “basics” right, focusing only on shiny objects like D-list celebrity brands and remote location shopping events.

    While the business — and its profits — continue to crumble under poor leadership, the employees take the hit. Pay is significantly lower than industry standard (I got a 35% raise when leaving the company by making a lateral move), benefits are subpar and morale is at levels not seen since the trenches of the first Great War.

    My advice? Stay away. This is a job seekers economy. Don’t settle for a business that’s struggling when the stock marking is hitting records ... where do you want to be during the next recession.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue.

    Pros

    The company is always changing and always working to adjust to the ever changing retail landscape. The company is growing and making a lot of positive changes for it's customers as well as employees. We do a lot to come together as a team, like quarterly company Happy Hours. The live studios make the building a fun and exciting place to work.

    Overall, Evine is a great place to work. There is such a great group of people working here and there is a lot of opportunity to learn and grow within the company!

    Cons

    No cons to share, I am satisfied with my employment at Evine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Continue to use employee feedback to make positive changes.

    Pros

    The money is good and this is such a niche business you feel like it’s hard to leave

    Cons

    You won’t be valued because management changes constantly and they are busy trying to change things to stay afloat- so employee satisfaction goes down the drain If you aren’t managements favorite by saying everything they’re doing is amazing, then you’re screwed. Stand by and watch the new hires become the superstars while you are pushed aside and diminished on a daily basis- if you are used to being told you’re not good at what you do and yet working constantly with no regard to your personal life, then this is the perfect company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing your employees and not just your new hires who have no clue. There is a lot of knowledge if you care to listen- or are you too busy wanting everyone to be positive and to lie to you about how it’s going? Put your customers first because they have great things to say but you’re not in touch with them. Oh and upper executives & buyers need to take a pay cut- a 4 day work week isn’t up to par for an executive in a company that hasn’t shown a profit!

    The team members are wonderful people, and the work isn't too hard.

    Supervisors don't care about the team members as people. Not a lot of cross-training opportunities.

    Learn how to relate to people and show appreciation.
