    I worked at honeygrow full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has an amazing culture and strong brand identity. The office is beautiful and even provides "family meal" every Wednesday. With the honeygrow's continued growth, it gave me the opportunity to learn a lot within a little amount of time. The office is fairly diverse, and everyone gets along like family. Decent benefits, also something that has been improving.

    Cons

    Growing pains, still working out some kinks but moving in the right direction. Stability is needed in management within certain departments. Difficult work/life balance.

    I worked at honeygrow full-time

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere depending on the store. Justin wants to be ambitious, and when I started he used to come into the stores all the time. But with so many locations, he's lost touch with some of the store employees

    Cons

    Poor training, supposed to be 6 weeks for management but most people are pulled out and thrown into store - HIGH VERY HIGH turnover - Benefits aren't all that great, no real sick time or vacation, Some PTO but it's like puling teeth to actually get off -60-65 hour work week (good for overtime but not for a social life) - They fire upper level management almost monthly. There isn't much loyalty to the people who started at the beginning with the company - Constant growing pains after being opened for 5 years - The company is growing too fast for the employees - Corporate thinks they know everything but never comes into the stores to actually see how things are run. what works and what actually doesn't work - they say they promote from within, but that is very rare. Some of my employees had been there years, cross trained, made promises to be promoted and still aren't - low balling certain employee pay. I paid my services managers over $12.... but some kitchen managers are being paid the same amount. - They fire people whenever they want for upper management.

    I worked at honeygrow full-time

    Pros

    New company Room for growth Benefits for team members

    Cons

    growing pains of a new company claim to promote from within but many employees who want to move up don't underpaying some new members of the company (even though they can afford to pay more) Expanded too quickly Many people in corporate play favorites which leads to many people being fired unjustly or people being promoted even though they aren't ready VERY HIGH turnover, the highest I have ever seen If you are a GM or AGM, you are always working...

    I have been working at honeygrow full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    With honeygrow still being a relatively young company in the scheme of things, this is a great opportunity to be part of something special, something that will grow (no pun intended), and something that has great room for advancement. In my time here (a little over a year) I've already noticed several individuals receive promotions or other types of awards/appreciation.

    Cons

    Start-up growing pains that are being worked out.
