    I have been working at International Association of Women full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I get to work from home everyday, as the company is fully remote. We have morning conference calls daily where the team gets to share motivational stories and the managers uplift the team. We get to speak with influential women all day long. The team is more like a family, we all support one another.

    Cons

    Some days can be challenging, but it’s sales, it comes with the territory, however, the good days definitely outweigh the challenging ones.

    Advice to Management

    Keep inspiring and supporting us to be the best we can be. I appreciate all that you do!

    Pros

    My coworkers. Decent health insurance.

    Cons

    Abusive environment and dishonest work practices. The company tried to rebrand themselves in Jan 2018, with greater transparency, but they weren't content to play the long game, and put the sales teams back on the hardcore sales model. Management indulge in nepotism and play favorites. Management won't let the sales teams work together, or communicate with each other. They repeatedly threaten sales staff with big brother tactics if anyone expresses doubts or concerns, calling then "needy" and "unprofitable." HR is always on hand to record every interaction between management and sales staff. They also count on employees to be ignorant of state and federal labor laws, so be careful.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are the engine that runs the company. Treat then with respect.

    I have been working at International Association of Women (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, they were like family. Flexibility to define your role and take on different things that interest you. No micromanagement. Upper management is accessible. Vacation time was decent.

    Cons

    I worked there during the time they went from being privately owned to going public. It was a turbulent time where we were left abandoned a lot. Sometimes I didn't really have a boss, so there wasn't anyone to vouch for my work. No raise the entire time I worked there. No annual reviews. If you're not in sales, your efforts don't really get acknowledged. Benefits weren't that great. No commuter benefits, not 401(k), had to pay a big portion of health ins.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully things have settled down now, as it's been some time since the merger, but I would say, don't be so cheap with employee benefits, have more structure (annual reviews), show a little more acknowledgement for non-sales positions.

    I worked at International Association of Women full-time

    Pros

    The women who work there really care about one another.

    The staff was really trying to change the product, customer support, sales process and marketing -- create something real for the members.

    Cons

    The management team from the parent company PDN. Over the last year there have been lots of changes and there was a mass layoff, including most of the senior management team.

    There is no real strategy nor anyone with real history. Although the team that is left is trying their best, they don't have the institutional memory.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside, create real plans, think before you act.
