    Thank you for the review. Making the decision to eliminate positions is never easy and is a decision we do not take lightly. You are right, Covid is a beast.

    I worked at Dude Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers. I loved every peer-level teammate, subordinate, and colleague. Have never met a more dedicated, attentive and considerate group of folks in my professional career. 10/10 would work with my rank-and-file team again, no questions asked. Also, felt safe in the diversity and inclusion realm. I'm in the LGBTQ community, and I generally felt like I could bring my "whole self" to work as an employee here. Some of that felt a little like "woke-washing," but I'll take it.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and vision. We have a financial goal ... but what are the intermediate goals that will help us get there? There's a lot of fluffy business-speak without any substantial compass to guide us in our everyday decision-making. My business unit lost the company about $200k last year, and no one in senior leadership would support my efforts to make it profitable. I also found out that, as a female coordinator, I had been paid about $20k less than the man who previously held the role. We had almost identical work and education histories.

    Pros

    You can make really good money if you're crafty and are willing to work hard. Coworkers are awesome. Management is not going to breath down your neck.

    Cons

    It's not the easiest product in the world to sell, but you learn. Don't necessarily pay the highest in the area, but probably in the top 20%. Can be a stressful job, you have to have a good work ethic and be able to roll with the punches.

    This was a tough post to read. Employees are our greatest asset, and creating an environment where all employees feel comfortable being their true self at work is a top priority. Over the past two years, we have consistently increased focus on diversity to ensure Dude is an inclusive environment. Areas of progress include the launch of our D&I committee in 2019 as well as multiple employee resource groups. This includes Hues of Dude – a group specifically focused on supporting and fostering the environment for employees of color and their advocates. With the help of the Hues of Dude leadership, we are having conversations and training across the company on what it means to be an ally to all communities of color including the black community. We also expanded our collaboration with Historical Black Colleges and Universities this summer and recruited a class of interns to help us grow diversity talent for our early career job opportunities. We continue to work to recruit more diverse employees and provide mobility, mentorship and development for our workforce. As CEO, I have zero tolerance for racism. I would like to learn more about your concerns and experience as a Dude employee so I encourage you to reach out to me. I hope to hear from you soon. Kevin
