    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sonoma Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Culture was a lot of fun. The focus on community was excellent, and the principals support the employees in fostering a fun, community environment.

    Cons

    Growing pains were evident--as the company gained size, it struggled to maintain it's identity as a creative, fun place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to balance policy and preferrence for a loose, fun culture. Harness the willingness of employees to contribute outside their job description.

    I worked at Sonoma Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits Great Products Lots of really good people to work with

    Cons

    No Money Currently being reorganized Facility is in desperate need of updating on many levels

    Advice to Management

    The current CEO (not Hoji Alimi) has a mission all his own that he isn't sharing with any of the employees. It makes for a very uneasy environment.
