      Face Paced Creative Culture

      Pros

      Company culture, it's a fun place to work as everyone is friends. The company is small enough still to be involved in a lot of different departments. Not a corporate culture at all. Also because it is small there are new challenges everyday, some people thrive in this, I like the fact that it's not monotonous. There are so many ways to explore and grow.

      Cons

      If you are looking for a consistent job where you do the same thing over and over this place is not for you. Also it is not structured like a corporation, so if you are looking for that it's not here.

      Hard to imagine working anywhere else

      Pros

      - The company culture is amazing. I can only speak to my experience, but both my department and teams outside of my own were extremely welcoming and helpful from the very beginning. - Herschel cultivates an extremely collaborative environment. You're given a seat at the table, so to speak, and have an ability to effect change at the company. - You can feel the passion from the founders of the business and you'll find them walking around the office, sitting in on meetings, and greeting you as they pass by. They're personable and easy to approach. - There is a high-calibre talent at head office across all departments. Many employees possess a wealth of knowledge and experience from other top tier firms and global companies, At the same time, no one takes themselves too seriously. - Comprehensive health insurance plan - Friday afternoon drinks at the office

      Cons

      - Although the Herschel brand is renowned and far-reaching, teams are probably much leaner than most people expect—sometimes there is a lack of structure. - Remuneration could be more competitive and salary increases and promotions are inconsistent and often delayed. - There needs to be a healthier and stronger HR presence. - Lack of employee parking spots—If you drive to work, you either have to get to the office extremely early to snag one or be forced to pay unless you want to try to find a free parking spot and move your car every hour.

      Pros

      - Product perks (get discount on product) - People are fun for the most part - Large events with a party heavy atmosphere (could be considered a con as well...)

      Cons

      - Terrible management (with huge egos) - "Boys club" with no desire for outside opinion - Unbalanced workload (some people work 16 hr days and other 6hrs...) - Good luck getting a promotion that actually has value (both in responsibility and pay)

      Good place to start, but wouldn't stay her long.

      Pros

      Culture - don't be afraid to connect with people, majority of people are welcoming.

      Cons

      After you get a year of experience, I would consider moving elsewhere. Don't expect your workload to get compensated well, salary isn't the reason why you should want to work here.
