    I worked at Randa Accessories full-time

    Pros

    Decent and competitive pay, large desk, small but decent gym across the street.

    Cons

    Company culture makes a healthy work-life balance very difficult. A very rigid schedule is enforced, no flexibility to work at home even when the work that is done is on a computer the entire day, sick/vacation time is comparable but still not great, culture is cut-throat where coworkers have no hesitance throwing each other under the bus for their personal benefit, and living a healthy active lifestyle integrated into work seems to grind against the expected way of the work culture. The job is largely sitting at a computer for 40 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Foster the ability for people to have a work-life balance with some flexibility in schedules and working from home, no one should have to take vacation time to get a regular check-up at the doctor. Show your employees appreciation in intrinsic ways to make them feel valued. They will then use that as motivation to work harder for you.

    I worked at Randa Accessories full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many. Decent benefits was about it. They tried to get you involved with a mentor program which in theory was a good idea. The woman I was assigned to only talked about herself though and on our "get to know you lunch" she invited her friends and mainly talked to them. It was lame.

    Cons

    Low pay for what I was doing, long work hours, usually worked 60+ hour weeks on salary and when asking to leave a couple of hours early one day with no work to do to recoup some personal time I was chastised for it.

    Working fast and efficiently gets criticism. My boss just assumed I was not doing quality work (without checking it) when I was just trying to keep up with a deadline workload that should have been assigned to two people.

    Poor morale in my department, no one talked to one another it was like working with robots. Little communication between management and employees. Honestly it was the worst company I have ever worked for. No potential for growth either.

    I have been working at Randa Accessories full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have nothing but positive things to say about working for Randa. Everyone is very supportive in helping new employees learn how to do their job well and are more than willing to answer questions. They also invest time, energy, and money into helping us to learn about the business as a whole. They are flexible with your starting and finishing schedule. Bosses allow their employees to work autonomously without feeling like they are being micromanaged. They are very receptive to new ideas and ways of improving the current systems. Randa has several programs setup to help its employees continue to grow and learn new things. They are also an active member of the local community trying to help in any ways that they can. I would 100% recommend working for Randa.

    Cons

    I do not really have anything negative to say about the company at this time.

    I have been working at Randa Accessories (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of very nice people to deal with. Benefits ate pretty decent for the most part. Got a chance to do a bit of traveling which was very nice.

    Cons

    I wish they gave us a bit more vacation. 15 days just doesn't seem like enough when you have to use those as sick days as well. They are also very strict with time and attendance. Dress code is also strict.

    Advice to Management

    I think they should review their PTO policies. If you give people more free time with their families they will be less stressed and more productive.

    A VERY INNOVATIVE COMPANY. ALWAYS, LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT BEST PRODUCT CATEGORY AND TRENDS.

    I personally do not have any negative comments about RAnda.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is more like supportive comments. Keep doing what you are doing. You are by far the best company in your sector of the industry.
