    Pros

    Free FIJI Water to drink, great co-workers, lots of opportunity to get meaningful experience as an intern

    Cons

    Not too many negatives, not really much of a company culture that may be related to high turnover in some departments.

    Advice to Management

    They seem to be doing a lot of things right, but maybe some additional effort towards building a stronger company culture would help improve

    I worked at FIJI Water full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free FIJI water, great co-workers and a good remote support system from HQ. Good benefits and POS. Fun people in a social/non work environment

    Cons

    The company and its ownership do not value the great talent they have and make it very clear on a regular basis. Management motivates by fear of losing your job and has no consistency once goals, programs and budgets are set. Incredible amounts of MINUTIAE and an inefficient use of time by all the fire-drills and trackers. Salary is not commensurate with workload and responsibility. Lots of Egocentric behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Create a plan and stick to it, practice what you preach. Senior management makes their regional managers and sales people look incompetent with their distributors because of the constant change in direction on daily/weekly/monthly basis. Value your people.

    Pros

    Team is filled of highly knowledgeable individuals who are willing to help and for the most part ate sincere

    Cons

    Company is run with politics first and taking care of the employees is not a first priority. Company is ran by guys who don't have to leave their kitchen to make 6 figures

    Advice to Management

    Change management and take immediate action when presented a problem. Don't wait till last minute.

    Pros

    Great training! Great People! Great Product! This is an awesome company to work for. They do take care of their employees.

    Cons

    Moving up is tough if you are unwilling to move. Most people love their job so getting promoted is tough if you don't want to move around.

    Advice to Management

    None. You did an awesome job!!! Loved my time with FIJI and learned SO MUCH!!! Nothing but great things to say about Parido and Houck.

    Pros

    It's a simple brand to promote due to the limited assortment. It teaches you a lot about how to champion a brand and its hero product. Everyone is still very entrepreneurial which allows you to learn a lot. You also get unlimited FIJI Water to drink.

    Cons

    Roll International's founders should be more involved in the day to day inspiration of the brand and the employees, rather than sporadically imposing direction on the team.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    It's small enough that you're able to learn a lot about all facets of business.

    Cons

    The product is within a very competitive industry, leading to unstable sales and sometimes, an uncertain work environment.

    Pros

    Free water, that's all I can think of.

    Cons

    Too many to mention. Main issue is they pay less than competing companies.
