    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 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    nice looking interior design and layout

    Cons

    All management was very snooty and stuck up. Systems and processes outdated, No thank you for going above and beyond, backstabbing people. If they do not approve of your socio-economic class your job is in jeopardy.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat people and be human, you make baby products and your logo is a heart....you should know better!!

    Pros

    This is an amazing company to work for - Senior management really cares about the employees, great benefits, fun company culture, talented-and bright team, and overall great collaboration among the teams.
    Opportunities for growth have never been better and the company continually grows.

    Cons

    High standard of excellence is required so if you are looking to go unnoticed that will not happen.

    I have been working at Munchkin full-time

    Pros

    Munchkin is an amazing and inspiring company to work for. My experience here has been nothing but pleasurable. I've never worked for a company that is so involved in keeping their employees happy. They provide all types of fun activities and company lunches so that everyone can socialize. It really does feel like a community.

    I interviewed for my position during the holidays so the process took a little bit longer than I would have liked. That being said the wait was definitely worth it. The people here are truly great and the space is really something else.

    At Munchkin the atmosphere is very lively and everyone is willing to lend a hand.

    Cons

    Very fast paced and detail oriented environment
