    Pros

    Great group ... everyone doing their best to be their best.. Yes there are challenges - but this special group of people do what it takes to meet them.. and along the way - we have some fun!!

    Cons

    Expect long hours during peak seasons.... trying to perfect ideas takes time and countless changes...to make them right... you need a thick skin & a sense of humor!!

    Pros

    flexible working hours, half-day Fridays in slower season

    Cons

    too many cons unfortunately.. I’ve spent a few years at the company and during this time I’ve seen so many people hired and fired quickly after. The company lacks strategy, vision and the CEO is making everything worse. During covid they laid off more than half of the company, but it was not because of the current state of economy in the country, but because of extremely poor business decisions and crazy impulsiveness of the CEO. He doesn’t trust anyone but himself and will never listen to any opinion or idea that is not his own. He doesn’t even trust the other owner, nor any of other founders that have been there with him since the beginning. It’s a very unprofessional, unequal and toxic environment. If you have any other choice, DO NOT come work here. Their future is very questionable anyway. Also, most of the 5 star reviews are fake (everyone at the company knows) and the free snacks that are mentioned here so often, they are not that amazing..

    Choose unemployment vs working here

    Pros

    If you want to work for a company that puts your bonus in your bank account and then takes it out 5-days later, this place is for you! This company is rife with problems and that’s the reason they hire and fire as seen in past reviews. There is a lack of CEO focus, a lot of indecisiveness and zero trust in the team around him. The other owner who is not mentioned in reviews is terrible too, and if you work for him, good luck. Several years of consistent turnover under that guy and shuffling of accounts. Crazy reckless unnecessary decisions were made during covid that practically bankrupted the company and resulted in laying off 3/4 of staff 2 weeks before Christmas. The owners bought a mask company on a whim, smack dab in the middle of covid, with zero experience selling this type of product during a time they should have been fiscally conservative to try and preserve as much staff and dollars. If you care anything about your health, do not work at this company. They do not care about mask wearing or health and safety of employees. They pushed us to come back into the office without proper safety measures setup. If you are reading this review and have decided to go elsewhere, you’ve dodged a bullet. If you are reading this and are unemployed, staying unemployed longer and choosing to go somewhere else is the best bet. The only pro was how smart and great co-workers were, but they let everyone go.

    Cons

    Stay Away and if you have a job somewhere else, don't quit to come here.

    Pros

    Flexible Working Hours and Snacks Provided

    Cons

    So so many cons, CEO is a classic narcissist and a bully, this has to be the most unprofessionally ran company I have ever worked with. The 5 star reviews are all fake as he couldn't stand that the company was below 3 stars on Glass Door so he had people write fake 5 star reviews. Over the past two years they have hired people from good jobs only to either fire them or lay them off months later leaving the without a job. They just laid off 1/2 their work force and honestly it appears their future is questionable.

    Pros

    Some of the friendliest co-workers that I have worked with; really an amazingly talented group of people, who are scrappy and able to pull off some amazing feats. You will likely have opportunities to take on projects and tasks that you have limited experience with which forces you to learn new skills very quickly. The overall vibe of the office is comfortable and casual. It can be playful in the way that you would hope a toy company would be. As mentioned, the free snacks and drinks are a nice benefit.

    Cons

    As many other reviews have noted, the environment often feels volatile. The CEO is smart, no doubt - but unrealistic expectations cause projects to fall short. There is a diverse group of talent with loads of expertise in their respective areas, but the teams contributions are typically overshadowed by a singular vision. This applies to every aspect of the business, from small day to day decision making, to marketing strategy to product testing.

    Beware: Terrible place to work

    Pros

    Free food & drinks. A small group of fun people.

    Cons

    Everything else is a con, no seriously. Management openly plays favorites-they don't care about the employees, zero career opportunities, they do not know what they’re doing. If you have multiple offers from other companies or have a choice on where to work, only join this company if it’s your last resort.

    Bad job security

    Pros

    Free food, spacious and modern work environment.

    Cons

    Unorganized, and lots of procrastination and indecision at the higher levels of management. Lower level employees are treated like disposable kitchenware. In my 2 years I saw at least 7 hard-working, honest, intelligent employees let go due to nonsense knee jerk reactions by management with no warning to the affected employees. Your job stability at this company is, on a scale from one to ten, anyone's guess, and can swing in either direction regardless of your actual performance at the company. The bipolar CEO will be helpful and supportive one day and screaming and blaming everyone for problems that are out their control the next.
