    I worked at FOCUS Brands full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Beautiful ambience to enjoy everyday. Most staff are surprisingly good at there job and easy to work with. Laid back culture but people get their stuff done

    Cons

    Very little career growth opportunities. Your best chance to move up is working in Operations or Marketing. In general the company is not good at planning most things get done based on the issue of the moment. Difficult to push new ideas

    Advice to Management

    Leverage the strength of the company, your people that know the work well and have great ideas to improve how things get done to grow the Brands Keep things simple, having lots of Brands is confusing enough make objectives simple to follow and measure

    No Career Growth Favoritism No Clear Direction Juvenile/High School Atmosphere Career Ender

    Advice to Management

    Promote qualified employees from within. Stop promoting unqualified people into Director roles or hiring unqualified external candidates. Too many people are Directors so the titles do not mean anything.
