    I have been working at Shango Premium Cannabis

    Pros

    If you like cannabis, you are in the right place. This company is poised to take the industry by storm and are happy to have you right there with them.

    Cons

    The day to day can get boring. Even though you are working with marijuana, it is still very much a retail job. This is especially true since they are a serious company looking to put a clean, professional face on the cannabis industry. So really, not a huge con. But, if you get bored easily and can't deal with excessive downtime on slow days, this is not for you. HOWEVER, since I have been here, business has steadily...

    Advice to Management

    If this is how you treat family ("we're all one big family here at shango" so here is your pay cut but we can buy new cars for our executives) I'd hate to be your neighbors

    I have been working at Shango Premium Cannabis for more than a year

    Pros

    They overcharge for really bad weed, making you look like a con artist.

    Cons

    You probably make really good money for being a con artist.

    Advice to Management

    Stop calling your leaf shake "genuine shango flower" and put the real product in the display jars instead of putting dank weed in the display jars to imply that's what the customer is getting and then putting trim in the bag. Can it with your bait-and-switch bull, you amoral bunch of thieves.

    I worked at Shango Premium Cannabis full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with and have excellent senior gardeners who are willing to teach anyone who will listen and learn. Low level management encourages creativity and for individuals to share their opinions and ideas openly.

    Cons

    The company has little interest in employee retention since there are so many people interested in the career. As a result it feels more like the kind of pay and environment of a high school job in that it is temporary and the company doesn't provide adequate compensation or room for growth in order to make a career out of it.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in your employees and trying to retain them would result in gardeners who are more familiar with Shango growing practices and result in increased productivity in the long run.

    I worked at Shango Premium Cannabis full-time

    Pros

    May be an OK place to break into the cannabis industry experience wise, but one should get out ASAP.

    Cons

    Adversarial managers, isolation between departments, questionable discrimination, very poor product quality, unsafe work environment, no structure, wage and benefit decreases, severe lack of communication.
