    I worked at Harmless Harvest full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Flexible work and WFH options: pretty relaxed when it comes to attending to your needs in life. At HQ, You can easily leave early or work from home as needed. Working out in the field offers even more flexibility. Monthly or quarterly wellness reimbursement: monetary reimbursement for things related to wellness or fitness. PTO and holidays: better than the average for similar CPG companies in the area. Lot of great...

    Cons

    Retention: Although there are still a lot of good people who work here, they often do not last. There are waves of people who leave every year. The gaps leave a lot of pressure on those remaining to keep everything on track. Leadership does not seem overly concerned about it. Leadership: This company is becoming top-heavy on management. A lot of new hires now in higher positions are coming out of a now defunct company...

    I have been working at Harmless Harvest full-time

    Pros

    pto, benefits, commuter, wellness reimbursement, free coconut water, occasional fun events

    Cons

    The turnover. Every other week someone is resigning. Everyone is anxious and always wondering "who's leaving next?" and management pretends like this is not an issue. The new ceo is a nice guy but has yet to make positive changes. He's also made a few questionable decisions. HR is unresponsive, unreliable and generally not trustworthy people. Cost savings seems to be very important unless it is for the benefit of...

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Harmless Harvest full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great product, but is becoming a very corporate mindset and all about numbers. Don't care about seniority and being of integrity.

    Cons

    When discontinuing the program, let go from the program. The company was super unappreciative. Didn't matter I had worked several years and was treated like old news and was unprofessional in that regard and not so very kind. The manager was unprofessional and only cared about numbers verses the older school approach that of working towards the bigger picture.

    I have been working at Harmless Harvest full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    During my recent Hurricane Irma evacuation, Harmless Harvest created an emergency employee fund. I was able to use this fund to cover my travel expenses; including gas, food and hotel expenses. This made for a smooth and comfortable evacuation. They went above and beyond in helping me in this tense time. Now they have this fund set up for all employees in case of future emergency.

    Cons

    I have no cons about Harmless Harvest. They are a great company to work for and I am very happy with them.

    I worked at Harmless Harvest full-time

    Pros

    None I can think of...

    Cons

    Company is passive aggressive and does not honor commitments. They hid under the guise of start up skin and shedding talent, but that's how it operates. Moved from NY to SF - fired all. In SF hired new talent and all have left but a few. Owners transition out and hire new CEO and COO. New CEO pushes out COO and moves out people from SF. She hires a new HR person and they start over. Things are great - we are growing...

    Advice to Management

    Karma is all around us in the universe and it follows companies. You just laid off a bunch of team members who were fully committed, because of the poor decisions you made in the past. Now you continue to perpetuate the myth of how all is great and your growing, but your not. We can all see the shift at WF's and retailers - its a matter of time before karma comes back. Hope you finally give your team what they...

    Pros

    Great progression available if you graft for it

    Cons

    It is a very T shaped employee structure which is great as you gain so much experience but sometimes you feel spread too thinly
