    I have been working at Summer Infant full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family feel, really good people. Making products that help parents and babies is rewarding. Benefits keep getting better and better. Can wear jeans any day. Started with summer half day Fridays and now is year round. Just added time off for dads of new babies.

    Cons

    Fast pace can be stressful and/or exciting. Summer has gone through a lot of change in the past few years. New CEO is experienced and grounded - this is not a con - feels like Summer is headed in a positive direction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing - so far so good.

    Pros

    I have seen many changes, not all easy, but the company keeps getting stronger and healthier. Good Senior Leaders... good products... good benefits... fair pay. I like working for a company that makes products that benefit babies and parents. Love seeing our products on the shelf.

    Cons

    Systems could be better. Training could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate transition from entrepreneurial growth company to Consumer Packaged Goods powerhouse !

    I worked at Summer Infant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, small company feel, good growth opportunities

    Cons

    Management routinely ran business into the ground despite the hard work and dedication from lower and middle management and staff, pay was lackluster, certain managers couldn't be bothered with suggestions for improvement

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, you hire great talent and to ignore them in a shame

    Pros

    New management is going in the right direction for sure. The company values are there and they truly care about personal growth.

    Cons

    Organization was lacking when I was there, along with communication. But from what I hear now, it's getting better with new management. The parking lot is a nightmare in the winter.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more clearly about what's going on in the organization.
