    Pros

    You have some great perks, company store, onsite salon, work from home, summer hours. Supply Chain is tough but there is work life balance here, more so depending on what boss you get.

    Cons

    The advancement opportunities are challenging as there are a pool of people competing for the same roles, however if you know someone they can move you along much quicker, however, not in my case

    Advice to Management

    Less politics especially in moving up the ladder, not fair for all employees

    Pros

    The offices are very nice, the people are very kind and sociable. There are a lot of little gifts or contests that make your day better or make you smile.

    Cons

    When you are new or maybe just in my case, nobody has time to stay and teach you, and I feel like I could have learned many things until now.

    Pros

    Agile workplace, ability to change roles, continual learning opportunities, lots of great people to work with

    Cons

    Poor roll out of strategy, unrealistic work loads, long hours, favoritism in promotion, constant change of strategy and database upgrades that don't make things more efficient, projects lead frequently by too young/green marketing team with more attitude than project management skills, still too beuocratic, and don't plan on a long career as ageism is a trend.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear and realistic goals. Improve the onboarding process. Control scope creep. Protect your team from burn out and retain talent. It is a great company and has great products but the fun in work has slowly gone away, now it is a daily grind without break.
