    Pros

    There are some good people there to work with

    Cons

    Steve Shubin, the CEO, is a full-tilt bozo idiot. Yeah, he makes some good money but only about half of what he would make if he allowed his trained, educated, experienced staff do their work. Glad to be gone

    Pros

    Really fantastic products and you get an amazing discount

    Cons

    The CEO is part of a religious group call The Master Angels. I think it's fair to describe them as a cult since they center around a charismatic leader named Master John Douglas who claims he can cure cancer, lyme disease, etc. He hosts $250 seminars and sells supplements, DVDs and healing jewelry online. This is relevant because 2 weeks after I was hired, my boss the CTO, one of the smartest and most decorated engineers I have ever worked with, was fired and replaced by a high priestess of the Master Angels. This woman had convinced the CEO (fraudulently) that she was capable of contacting angels in heaven via the power of crystals and that they could help her make perfect business decisions. I am not even joking. If you decide to take a job at ILF there are a few things you should know: - Your opinion does not matter. - The CEO is extremely volatile. - You can get "terminated" for any reason or no reason at all. - 20%-ish of the employees are the CEO's direct family members. - Most of the management belongs to the crystal angel cult. - Smart people are not welcome because they are a threat to the divine.

    Pros

    Makes for a great story at the bar. People really get a kick out of that.

    Cons

    Private company constantly at the whims of a bored and ridiculously wealthy CEO who does not understand how modern companies function and operate. CEO hires under-qualified consultants and overpays them to meddle in the company and further cause chaos and discord. No system for tracking employee performance or lack thereof. You can be the best employee and still get fired for no real reason. Or the worst and get away with a lot before anyone notices. Habitually fires large groups of people. Sometimes with good reason and sometimes for no reason at all. High levels of anxiety because there is no executive in place running the company smoothly. Lots of turnover in several parts of the company. Weird segregation between the manufacturing side of the building and the office side. Huge disparity in compensation. Ridiculous salaries for executive level consultants who do very little to no work and very low pay for full-time, salaried employees.

    I worked at Fleshlight full-time

    Pros

    The have a gym. If you get a job here ask for a contract so when you're let go he has to pay you out the remainder of your contract, and trust me he will pay without even arguing. His in house lawyer has a protocol for firings, severance, and sexual harassment settlements are a regular thing, so ask for the moon, you might be surprised when they give it to you so you don't bring bad press onto the owner.

    Cons

    You can't use the gym, and probably wouldn't want too considering the fact that many a naked bum has sat on those machines. Oh, and you never know when the owner will walk in and fire an entire team of people. If you get a job here ask for a contract so when you're let go he has to pay you out the remainder of your contract, and trust me he will pay without even arguing.

    Pros

    Interesting place to work. Always fun when people ask where you work.

    Cons

    Mostly low pay. Unsatisfied workers. Totally stratified company culture. Factory employees are treated as almost non-essential, and turn over is evidence of this. They ask for change, and then get mad that you are trying to change things.

    I worked at Fleshlight full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A few of the people I got to work with were really great people.

    Cons

    Everything else. As others have stated, this company would have been gone long ago if the product didn't sell itself. The management and their children and their cronies suffer from a lethal combination of ignorance and arrogance. Every single day is filled with lies, firings, half-truths, and hardships. Decisions are made on a whim and rarely make any sense. People are on-edge all day everyday, not knowing if they are still going to have a job that afternoon; I probably saw 20-25 people fired in the 10 months I was there, almost all of them with very little cause. As a result, no one at the company enjoys being there. It is a cesspool that is now nothing more than a hobby for a bored CEO & his family; they don't have any friends outside the company anymore, so it exists solely to feed their egos at this point.

    I worked at Fleshlight full-time

    Pros

    The only pro is the potential of meeting a some great people who unfortunately also landed a job at Fleshlight.

    Cons

    *The company is owned by a master manipulator, Steve Shubin. *Turn over is extremely high. Shubin belittles current employees to newcomers. *If you are a female your chances of being sexual harassed by Shubin are around 98%. Shubin has settled multiple times for sexual harassment. *Zero potential for growth. *Constant fear of being terminated. *Zero execution.
