      Pros

      Flexible working Great benefits Warm hearted people and strong sense of community Relaxed atmosphere Seeing people's face light up at parties when I answer the classic "where do you work?" question.

      Cons

      The busy season is over the holidays (obviously!) Sometimes there's communication silos between some departments, but people are genuinely doing their best to improve things.

      Great place, part time job is a bit weak though

      Pros

      Great team Paid mileage to and from house Positivity forward company The few benefits are decent: Product discount, vacation time, 401k. Yearly performance reviews mean raise chances.

      Cons

      Full time hours for "part time" job The benefits they don't offer: Medical and dental, paid leave. Pay is on the weaker side at a little under $13 an hour with their own non- standard mileage rate. Told in the interview: "No forward advancement opportunities in this role" which was a bit disheartening and entirely untrue.

      A great work environment, but limited career growth potential

      Pros

      * The company produces a product that's easy to believe in and feel good about, and goes the extra mile to be socially responsible. * Because the company values children and families, they are committed to a fair work/life balance. The work hours are reasonable, and they encourage a sense of play in your work. * Benefit options are excellent. * The company is privately owned by the family that founded the company, so the company doesn't make as many decisions that feel like they're to "benefit the shareholders" at the expense of the consumers and the employees.

      Cons

      * Most senior roles are based in Denmark, so US-based senior roles are limited, and turnover is so low that career growth opportunities are rare and highly competitive. * A 'hire to retire' mindset that hires people who are experts in a role, and doesn't promise or encourage them any growth beyond their current role. Most people I worked with were fantastic, yet had to wait 10+ years between promotions. * Professional training or development budgets were nonexistent. If you wanted to learn something, you had to pay for it yourself or take a LinkedIn Learning class. While they do offer educational reimbursement, the degree you pursue must be directly and clearly in support of the work in your current role, not what you want to grow into. * Base salaries tend to be lower than the industry average because bonuses tend to be larger. If you're surprised by the salary offer, ask about the potential annual bonus. Chances are it fills in the salary gap you're missing.

      Pros

      Great discount, fun customers, lots of new things to talk about

      Cons

      Management completely bypassed a personal safety issue that was affecting both employees and customers alike. Three weeks had passed and no one had spoken a word of the incident.

      Pros

      Good hourly pay for employees still in college or just graduated. Management is very motivating, and the support team is very helpful.

      Cons

      Everything is a seasonal position there. Wages do not increase much at all upon gaining a promotion. Little opportunity for raises, and no opportunity for negotiation whatsoever. Annual raise is only about 50 cents.
