    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Next Step Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Open work environment, employees are nice

    Cons

    The company has never made a profit, their sales practices and customer service has led to every review on YELP to be a 1 star. Leadership is arrogant and oblivious on how to run a company. They want to save the world but can't even save themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Close it down.

    Pros

    Great concepts and ideas, fun work environment. Progressive style company with an atmosphere that's hard to find on the east coast.

    Cons

    Company is divided into a class system, there is no way to go upwards beyond were you start out at. Its easy to move laterally, but they always hire new people instead of promoting from within. Also management wants to have everyone believe the company is entirely dedicated to environmental causes but upper management is clearly driven buy money and nothing else, with perhaps the exception of CEO Chapin, who seems genuine.

    Advice to Management

    Turn over seems high because employees that are smart and hard working are not given structured opportunities to prove themselves.
