      Pros

      Fun team environment Owners are present and engaged Upper management is transparent with their goals and plans

      Cons

      Salaries are low in comparison to equivalent positions but that's expected for a florist. Location is in one of the worst areas of Boston because the warehouse space is needed for mass floral design production long hours during holidays - Christmas, Hanuka, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day.

      Advice to Management

      Train new managers so they can build better teams.

      I worked at Winston Flowers

      Pros

      Amazing team effort with talented, hardworking people. Family like atmosphere. Made a lot of friends, even some lifelong friends that I trust and truly respect.

      Cons

      Salary can be somewhat low - but this is usually expected in the design / floral / events industry. Colder working conditions if you are working in the studio.

      Advice to Management

      Need to be a bit more organized in terms of roles for newer employees.

      I worked at Winston Flowers

      Pros

      Best product and great design team makes selling easy. Customer service reps are given the tools to succeed.

      Cons

      This is a family run company and it is reflected in the internal culture. Holidays can be tough.

      I have been working at Winston Flowers for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Great connections and reputation in industry. Perceived as premier purveyor of floral product and design for hotels and commercial. Great place to get started in career, add to resume, and move on from there. Beautiful presentations. Strong industry presence (but also many complaints). Retail stores offer great experience.

      Cons

      Reputation changing. Certain "smoke and mirrors" as far as product, presentation, quality, freshness or integrity. it shows true often enough as measured by complaints and replacements at all levels - corporate customers, events, retail customers. VERY POOR work/life balance and employee opportunity, click-ish, favoritism, favor young (20 somethings). Lack of consistent operations management creates huge employee dissatisfaction...

      Advice to Management

      This is not a complaint, it's an observation and call to awareness. Don't ride on your laurels, keep getting better and doing better for yo9ur people. Winston's could be a true leader. Get some smart upper management, from outside the family, invest in employee development, and put some consistent operations systems in place. You'll be amazed at the difference it will make for a great legacy company like Winston's.
