    Startup Environment that May not be for Everyone

    Jul 28, 2021 - Junior/Mid Level Office Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    • Startup environment with flexibility and ability to hear out ideas, access to CEO and leadership • Conveniently located in the city • Majority female coworkers and mothers

    Cons

    • Many wasted hours spent on unnecessary meetings and left without actionable deliverables • Unspoken expectation and pressure to work through lunch and after-hours (although this occasionally resulted in flex time) • Low pay that does not match industry standards • Decisions that are left to the last minute and cause an excessive amount of work for lower-level employees • Promises made by higher-level employees and management that were not kept • General disorganization and confusion, lack of communication • Tight workspace that caused employees to get sick on a regular basis • Reluctance of office employees to take sick days or PTO; employees would come in sick to work • Ideas that are created at the leadership level are then handed to junior/mid-level employees with zero regards for their existing workload

    Pros

    This was by far the best job I’ve ever had. The customers are amazing, the babies are cute and always happy, the team in Chicago are helpful and always encouraging and the storks make your job easy! I had such a great work and personal life balance which made me eager to be at work even more. I’d work here again in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    No cons I could think of. This is such an amazing work environment especially if you have little ones of your own.

    flexible scheduling, and great environment to work in

    Pros

    great college job, manager, and team works very well together, diverse staff, no work place drama is a big bonus

    Cons

    hours cap on part time store employees, no room for growth on the retail store end if you want to establish longevity. That is why it is a great job while you are in school and need the money.

    Pros

    I am so proud to be a part of the Monica + Andy team. This group of people truly loves what they do and it shows. Our CEO, Monica Royer, is extremely innovative and passionate about the business and it resonates throughout the company. She truly cares about the career path + personal growth of each of her employees and is always open to feedback and new ideas. I started at M+A as a consultant and as the company has evolved, so has my role. I am now a full-time Director and love that each day truly brings something new. It's a very exciting time to be a part of Monica + Andy and can't wait to see what the future brings!

    Cons

    No major cons jump out!
