    I worked at Global Brands Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fair pay and some tasks on the job that were normally outside the job description kept me engaged excited and motivated

    Cons

    Really awful culture from managers and higher-ups. I would not refer anyone to this company. There were no role models at the company, no one that made you think, "if I work hard, I want to end up like him/her". The only people who were in a good place were entrepreneurs who ended up there once their company was acquired. Everyone else had bad work/life balance and bad relationships at work.
