    Free Lunches Ocassionally, Benefits, Lots of Meetings

    Incredible Pressure, Bad Management, Job Constantly Threatened

    Instead of beating down new employees who struggle, help them. And hire A LOT more people

    I have been working at Nite Ize full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic workplace with lots of opportunities to grow as the company expands. Management works hard to create a fun team environment. Overall very positive employee morale and a willingness to get the job done well.

    Cons

    Fast growth has led to some disconnects between departments, and lots of new employees and roles makes for a more fluid environment than some people like.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to keep that strong entrepreneurial culture that's made the company successful, respected and fun, and don't let bureaucracy creep in under the guise of organizational improvement.

    I worked at Nite Ize full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    nice health care benefit package, company lunches , 401K matching after 3 years of employment

    Cons

    company is growing and management is constantly adapting to keep up which can be frustrating if you take it to seriously. Company boast a team mentality, but management is not accountable for most of the problems and tends to pass the blame downstream.

    Pros

    Fast growing company that will eventually be a household name. Good people and fun culture. Lots of gatherings and events to participate in and be part of the Nite Ize family. Rick, the owner, is the most fantastic, hard working person you will ever meet. He cares deeply about every employee. Lots of potential for upward movement.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is out of whack. It's a fast growing company and with that comes a lot of hard work and frequent change. Everyone thinks they work super hard, until you spend a couple years here - then you will know what hard work looks like. It's a little insane at times. Vacation policy is average. 401k is not competitive. Healhcare is not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Slow it down people! What's the rush? Why push your employees so hard that their personal lives suffer? We can slow down and still grow the company.

    Pros

    Great company, everyone cares and is ready and willing to help. The owner is brilliant, extremely nice and easy to talk to, he walks around to check on everyone. Growing company, so there are a ton of opportunities. Your voice is heard. Fast moving environment.

    Cons

    Growing pains, company has some growing pains they are working out. But you gets used to it and partially appreciate it.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of good has come from HR but I believe there is still room to grow. Ie. better maternity leave

    Nice peers, on site gym (at one location)

    Cons

    Inexperienced executives, zero autonomy, no trust of capable employees, inefficient, very low productivity, exectives refusal to further education, close minded, poor work life balance, passive aggressive management.

    Advice to Management

    First, hire education, qualified management. Next, CEO needs to be more hands off and delegate where possible. Research productivity tools and bring workplace into 21st century.
