    I have been working at MedMen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Work life balance, after 10 years of High Volume Outlet Retail, I can finally say I have it. It feels so great to finally feel like I can live my life! - free samples and “$0.01” coupons - I’m finally with a company that I actually wanted to work for and I’m selling a products that I believe in and stand behind. -I’ve met both the CEO and President of the company and they both keep it very one-hundred.

    Cons

    -Sometimes it hard to distinguish the Management staff from the Hospitality Association because we all wear the same Red Shirt. Would be cool if Management had a different dress code.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes things a little disorganized, the company needs to improve on ensuring all the T’s are crossed and I’s are dotted before rolling out information and initiatives.

    Pros

    Startup culture with lots of work to do. This is not for the faint of heart, we have a lot of work to do. The team is passionate about what we're doing and how we're changing the stigma around Cannabis.

    Cons

    Fast paced, sometimes it can be too fast for most colleagues. You need to be ready for change it happens often.

    Advice to Management

    Glad that there is more transparency between Management and employees, keep it up!

    Pros

    It allows working remote, beside that I can’t think of anything else.

    Cons

    No structure, poor management, assigned task without clear design and/or requirements specs.

    Pros

    This is a brand new industry, so no matter what area you work in, no matter what role you play, you have the ability to affect the future. You should know, though, it is hard work. Loving Cannabis is not enough for you to be successful. You will be expected to produce at a high level. This is in all areas of the business whether you are growing/selling the products or working at the corporate office. You need...

    Cons

    Like any startup, there is a bit of chaos involved. Some people don't respond well to it, and they make it unpleasant for others. Some managers need training. Some can be downright jerks. They should leave and work somewhere else. No work/life balance. It's impossible at times to keep up with the workload unless you pull some nights/weekends. You can choose to not do it, but then the work week becomes even...

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the bad managers and continue to hire people who want to work hard but have fun. Know who your shady people are. They tell you what you want to hear. Go down one more level to really get the story. Other than that, thank you for this incredible opportunity.

    I have been working at MedMen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Rapid growth, opportunities,, competitive pay, health care, stock options. Benefits have improved.-things are generally getting better. The industry is exciting and it is apparent that the people at the top care and are really trying to make things better for the employees.

    Cons

    Outrageously demanding at times, lots of turnover= people fearing for their jobs. Work/life balance not a priority.

    Advice to Management

    Develop and invest in your people. Find a way to open communication. There are too many layers between the top people who can make real changes and the people who are doing the majority of the work. It seems the the people at top care, but they just don't know everything that goes on. Middle and upper managers care more about looking good to their bosses and about making their bonuses than about taking care of the...

    I worked at MedMen part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had great manager, she was on both sides, she always stood up for the brand ambassadors (checking in with correct payments, safety issues at venues/events) while also maintaining good relationship as the HQ person.

    Cons

    I originally started as $20, but then they decreased the compensation to $15.

    Advice to Management

    They should hire more people who knows about cannabis, not just pretty and attractive influencers to attend cannabis related events.

    Pros

    Not sure what those would be.

    Cons

    Poor leadership from the top down. Nepotism is the priority when hiring - not employee safety. Race, gender and LGBTQ are an issue at this company. Even if you are not in theses groups it is painful to watch others be mistreated.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house!

    I have been working at MedMen full-time

    Pros

    This is an exciting time to join the company. There are talented individuals within the organization. I can speak for corporate but not on the retail or cultivation side. Look, are there bad apples? Yes, and I've seen the company ultimately made the right decision in separating those bad apples (which has boost morale). I've worked at Fortune 500 companies and so have some of my colleagues. All organizations have issues...

    Cons

    Some of the resources I enjoyed at previous companies aren't readily available here. The parking situation isn't ideal. There's no 401K, which is a bummer.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more often with employees. The more, the better as it makes everyone feel included. Also, continue to invest in personnel and resources. While I enjoy wearing multiple hats, I am more effective with a bigger team and having the right tools. They cost money, but the investment is worth it. The ultimate asset to an organization is its people. So showing that the company is invested in each employee's development...

    I have been working at MedMen full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Being a new hire at Medmen is a great experience. After working for Medmen for 6+ months, you will be attractive to other organizations within the cannabis industry.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency (odd for a public company), lack of communication, lots of first time manager, directors, etc (hire ups), tremendous turnover, lack of trust, people are not rewarded based on work performances, most employees are in fear of losing their jobs, to stay out of conflict you must always say yes, no loyalty to tenured employees, repetitively making false promises, and basics start-up problems

    Advice to Management

    Have mangers, directors, vps, etc take seminars on how to be effective leaders Make more changes leadership not just non-management positions Stop making false promises or promises the company is not 100% sure they can keep HR needs to hold official performance reviews to checkin with employees and their managers, not just write ups to begin the firing process Stop telling employees performance reviews...

    I worked at MedMen part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Pros were false lies of upward mobility.

    Cons

    Very low pay compared to other BA jobs in the area and the industry. Promised a 30 day, 60 day, 90 day review. That was a lie. Organization lacks communication and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified employees and pay fairly. Cheap pay = cheap labor.

    Thank you for your feedback. We work tirelessly to hire the best employees and pay market wages. The lack of 30, 60, 90 is surprising, training has been notified to ensure that this experience doesn't happen to others. Thank you for your support of MedMen.
