    I have been working at Thane International full-time

    Pros

    Constant incoming product lineup which makes it a busy work environment but fun and exciting to take products from early stages to launch in up to 80 countries around the world; Small Company; Friendly atmosphere; Great Benefits

    Cons

    Poor set up for upward mobility; Owners seek advice from a select few and are not open to listen to constructive advice from lower level employees who just want to help improve the structure, culture and performance of the company

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to listen to employees at all levels. Seek their advice.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    small company should be easier for the operation, but ...

    Cons

    This company has a broken development process, not function well and poor management. They have no idea how to run the business properly, and key positions / players are missing, wondering why? Because there is no one- experienced professional wants to work there. The lack of organization has negatively affected its business and its growth!

    Advice to Management

    Shutdown the company

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Thane International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Thane gives an opportunity to explore advanced trends in direct marketing and e-commerce sales. Each subsidiary has a very strong, entrepreneurial spirit, and teams composed of strong individuals who are leading experts in their field...

    Cons

    Due to entrepreneurial nature of the company, almost each individual works on tasks, which would be split among two in some other company. Not all departments understand the need to raise the bar to the highest mountains, so it's like hot and cold environment, based on where you swim :) The culture is still not value driven, and bureaucracy of sweating very, very small stuff is still present, which practically kills the creation spirit of individuals who are used to freedom of creation and expect recognition for their work. Rules are still more important than values, so one day the environment will move from WHAT to HOW culture. Despite all these cons, there is a huge potential to enjoy, and create in this environment, but only if you are strong and very creative individual. This is not a place for people who wait to be served their plate...

    Advice to Management

    Start moving from WHAT to HOW culture, recognize those who really make the change, and leave those pitiful bureaucratic RULES and PEOPLE, who make everyone feel miserable behind... They belong in some other sad companies, not the one that's willing to go to the very top...
