    Toxic culture and inexperience

    Pros

    Good vacation policy and health insurance offerings

    Cons

    Senior and mid-level leadership is not only inexperienced, but also consumed by ego. Team leads spend their time trying to undermine coworkers and play politics. So it should come as no surprise that little cross-functional collaboration occurs. IF may also be the valley's biggest fraud when it comes to virtue signaling. Leadership does not care about DEI. It actively pushes out diverse leaders while promoting underqualified tech bros. DEI is a thinly veiled marketing tactic at the company. But perhaps the company's most fatal mistake is that it aspires to function and spend like a tech company when in reality, it is a CPG. It will never achieve the scalability of a tech company and should stop deluding itself. Don't expect career progression, learning opportunities, competitive pay, etc.

    So much potential to do good in the world, but leadership is full of old ego maniacs

    Pros

    Product led growth Reasonable pay and benefit Great mission

    Cons

    Sales leadership can't take feedback because their egos are too fragile. Sales/marketing departments are entirely political, and sucking up is valued more than quality work. Sales leaders sit on Twitter all day and then pretend to be busy when you actually need them. Sales leadership forgets how to get anything done themselves and then freaks out when their poorly given instructions don't meet the perfect expectation in their imagination. Only the loudest people are heard in meetings and nobody listens to learn, they listen to share their own opinion which results in endless feedback loops and hours of time wasted in meetings that could have just been an email...

    No organizational structure or goals

    Pros

    Holidays and free food Flexible work schedule Good health care

    Cons

    Seasoned professional or a new college grad, go to a more established company, where procedures are encouraged instead of chaos. The entire business is run like a college freshman project. People who are ill equipped to make business deals are allowed are put into position of power. This is a food science company, it needs to start acting like one. No raises No bonuses No 401K matching No cutting edge anything No structure Bad behavior gets rewarded Bad business decisions get celebrated Management in all departments is horrible and unorganized

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great company, mission and employees. As a start up a lots of tech perks (lunches, fun activities, etc.)

    Cons

    Needs better leadership (across the company). Smart leaders from various industries but alignment with other leaders needs lots of improvement. Can never agree or seem to align. Collaboration was great at one point now it's not the same (struggle to even get a good collaboration).

    Pros

    Great benefits, Pat is an amazing guy and genuinely cares for the mission

    Cons

    Toxic culture, you have to be or act like a white hipster and attend every booze filled outing. Emotionally and mentally breaking people and demeaning them.Management is absolute garbage. They do not care about ability or growing dedicated people. They are full of themselves and ineffective and in their obsession with disrupting, chase an image versus substance. They are racist and sexist. Low quality, dangerous, products are being made, I would never give this to anyone I know.
