    Pros

    -talented and diverse staff, lots of really cool nice people -good snacks and coffee available all the time -great health benefits plan -lots of product perks/discounts -monthly parties and events -opportunity to work directly with all levels of the company (the owners are very involved in day to day operations... this could be a pro or a con)

    Cons

    -pay is below industry average -lack of diversity in upper management -projects were often done on a whim, with no planning for sales or marketing (this wasted staff's time on projects that were doomed to fail) -poor communication, poor process -Sales first, always -no career progression

    Once in a lifetime place to be.

    Pros

    I don't understand some of the negative views of herschel supply here. It may be due to the lack of previous experience in other workplaces. But what I would say, from working in many environments is that this is by far the most fast-paced, challenging, engaging, and dynamic place you can be to hone your skill set and grow your career. Major pro is the fact that no two days will ever be the same, if you are looking for a 9-5 punch-in punch-out type of environment, this is not it. That I can say with certainty. The entrepreneurial spirit of the place is infectious. If you have something you can contribute, you are challenged to take the first steps and drive the project forward. I rarely have ever head "thats not your job". You have the opportunity to own your role and define it as the company continuously grows (fast). This means doors open up within the company and in new markets they enter. Two passionate founders means this place has a family business feeling that makes you feel like you are a part of something bigger than a corporate space.

    Cons

    Fast moving environments tend to come with process and communication issues. This is a symptom of the explosive growth, but with each month things tend to tighten up, trying to catch up to global growth. As a start-up type of environment, with it comes a lack of HR and leadership type of programs or training you many get from some larger organizations. As some others have stated, parking is tight and I would recommend buying a bike if you don't want to be circling the block for half an hour.

    Pros

    Lots of young, talented people in the office. Coffee and snacks available in the office, including drinks on Friday afternoon and monthly events.

    Cons

    Communication is terrible between teams. Lack of process. There is a lot of wasted time and resources due to poor planning on management's part. The teams are all pretty small, so there's not a lot of room for upward movement.

    Pros

    The team and people are Herschel are great and really make the company a special place to work for. The product and growth has a lot of potential for the future.

    Cons

    Lack of communication on how the company is performing with the team and visibility on growth targets. Lack of diversity in voices at the top level. Lack of interest in hearing opinions from members of the team outside a select few.
