I've worked a lot of different jobs in a lot of different fields, and my job here at Pure Romance has been the best by far. It's a welcoming and encouraging environment, which is great for creative person like myself. You don't have to worry about being perfect at every aspect of your job. They're big on people, and training people on how to do the job they need you to do. You're surrounded by so many talented professionals, you can learn so much and sharpen your skills. I enjoy working here and contributing to the mission and the culture.
I don't have any cons to report.

Other staff. Was able to make some of the best friends I've ever had, experiencing trauma together bonded us and we are still friends now even four years later.
CEO has serious anger issues, verbally abusive behind closed doors to corporate office staff. Others in leadership seem to be too scared to stand up for their teams. Sexual harassment a regular thing, especially for women. Reporting falls upon deaf ears or ends in lawsuits and legal gaslighting.4

Great coworkers, everyone who wasn't management was very welcoming and hard working
The management and CEO have anger issues and run the company like immature highschoolers. They abuse their employees and fire people just because. Theres verbal abuse, sexual harassment and no HR.2

Making your own schedule is great
They used to be great and cared about their company and consultants. Now they just care about their second homes. They push they you should recruit but when you start spending less of your time selling and more time training they complain that your numbers aren't up. They literally tell you to work on recruiting so you don't have to work as hard and can make your money off of them but when you do they black ball you and berate you in front of other peers using foul language.1

None! I would say discounted products but after you pay the ungodly tax and shipping prices, you're paying the exact same, if not more. If you had a good upline that didn't lie to you, and if you recruit others, you might make money. But you have to have lots of minions selling under you AND they have to meet certain sales goals. But of course, that's how a pyramid scheme works
Everything! You will go into debt. My upline was awful and didn't know what they were doing. They gave me false information that cost me a lot of money. Plus, nobody wants to buy from pyramid schemes anyway

The conferences are the only good thing.
Everything. The culture is like high school. There's no support for people in their roles. The ceo will fire anyone on a bad day.

Every recruiter will nod sympathetically in your future job search, at one time having been hired by this company to recruit on their behalf, and then swore they would never work with them again. Every recruiter knows exactly how awful the company culture is from the top down. I literally had a recruiter (from another company I was considering) call me to let me know she felt like we should "have a conversation" about this company and the abusive culture before I accepted the position.
Downsides include verbal abuse, sexual harassment, a non-existent HR department, so there's no help in solving any work issues. Lots of "family culture," which is frankly frightening. I hope no one has family members who treat each other the way you will be treated at this company. Are there good people who work there? Sure. And none of them are in charge. Are there smart people working there? Sure. And none of them are in charge. Are there narcissists there? Sure. And they ARE in charge. I remember being on a company-wide call during the pandemic with their operations person, sharing how much profit the company was making...while they had frozen all contributions to everyone's 401ks... and trust me, they weren't in a hurry to start contributing again. They withheld those contributions as long as possible and never made them up, despite it being a part of everyone's employment agreements. But meanwhile, "record profits!" Give me a break. But that's who these people are. They say with straight faces that they never mess with anyone's money. There they are messing with people's money. They say one thing and do something else. From the interview onward, you can expect it will not be what they say it will be. Expect outright lying, blame, verbal abuse, and the worst company culture you can imagine. No one here is empowered. Everyone here is constrained. It was truly bizarre to work for a "top woman-owned company" in the region that was totally misogynistic. Good times.3

The team I work with is incredibly collaborative. It's very pitch friendly and the best ideas win. People get to work from their area of expertise, and the ethos is very "make things you are proud of" which is the best motivator for a creative team.
As with any organization, communication across company could be improved.

Laid back in the summer

Co-workers collaborate and brainstorm together making for a fun and unique atmosphere. Manager is open to trying new things and loves to see passion from their employees.
I can't think of any.
