    Pros

    Engaging and fast paced environment where you get good experience end to end management of a multitude of brands. Nurturing environment and nice colleagues.

    Cons

    Not much employee benefits. Pay is below industry standard and management decisions are sometimes questionable. CEO was hired in 2016 to spearhead e-commerce initiatives but we are still lagging behind in that area. Brands get onboarded and discontinued very quickly before they have time to show results. Limited A&P budget due to management being unwilling to invest in marketing which results in brands being ruined by heavy discounting and promotions.
