    I worked at Karmaloop full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Original management and company (under Greg Selkoe) was an energetic, creative, challenging, somewhat disorganized environment, but it empowered people to take on projects and work hard.

    Cons

    New ownership is worst yet. The company was over with bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    Sell off your assets.

    I worked at Karmaloop full-time

    Pros

    Lots of freedom, lots of excitement in a totally insane juvenile environment. Lots of young people. Seemed like it had a lot of growth potential.

    Cons

    Lots of young people- the freedom was like chickens running around with their heads cut off. No one really had any direction, and the company was overly ambitious.

    Advice to Management

    Just focus on core business, hire people with experience and listen to them. May never get back to what it was, but there's still a business there.

    Pros

    We are allowed to wear whatever we want, bring your dog to work. Awesome team, promotion within and very fast. Very laid back, you take breaks and no one is watching over you like animals.

    Cons

    Some department can be very clicky, Ceo sometimes over look customer service. I felt like he treated us very infairly, long hours and always pushing us to work longer but no bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally, customer service we work hard and long hours. Stop over looking our team that work so hard for you and very little pay.
