    Pros

    People. oddly enough Munchkin has really good people working there.

    Cons

    Everything goes in this company - favoritism, verbal abuse, toxic and extremely hostile environment, people living in constant fear. All is controlled by one or two people and it is all based on their whim and mood.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously open your eyes. this used to be a great company to be part of but the last two years it has taken a nose dive and is on its way to crash.

    I worked at Munchkin (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Beautiful building
    -Cool artwork, especially the graffiti
    -Friendly/ highly skilled staff & co-workers/supervisors
    -Great energy
    -Fair pay (paid overtime & double overtime during holidays)
    I was freelance and had the option to work from home but worked at the building most days because it was so pleasant. I work in fashion and tech. Most apparel companies do not have any of the amenities of munchkin. Although I was in the apparel section, Munchkin's company culture seems to reflect more of a tech company feel. There was constant catering and parties and food trucks. The coffee machine is super pimp and the soda machine is just like the one at the movie theatre. They have a gym with showers and super cute outdoor courtyard area. I now own my own tech company and always thought of Munchkin as a company culture I'd like to emulate in my own.

    Cons

    -Some of the art is REALLY weird... a bit dark for a baby company.
    -CEO & upper management rarely spoke to me.

    Advice to Management

    My manager/supervisor was beyond stellar. I have no advice for her. I have very limited knowledge of how management worked outside of the apparel section.
    A bit more personal interaction from CEO & upper management would've been nice.

    Pros

    Great place to work. So many opportunities to take advantage of, if you are brave enough. Great benefits, room to grow, strong company culture and more.

    Cons

    The inherent nature of an innovative company is constant change, you have to be willing to take on that challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team

    I worked at Munchkin part-time

    Pros

    Munchkin is a very fun place to work at, awesome employees, fast paced environment. The working environment is very enjoyable the corporate culture is very cool.

    Cons

    The company is growing at a very fast speed, you would receive mixed guides and direction from manager vs director. Training is not a substantial part for new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Munchkin should improve the their training program for new employees. Keep the culture the way it is its an awesome company.
