Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager in Baltimore, MD (US)

I worked at Plum District full-time for less than a year

Pros

Work from home
Made connections with female sales pro's in other parts if the country

Cons

CEO, Megan is mean and belittles sales people and managers in front of others, used to get the entire team on a call and give sales reviews to individual managers.
Expect you to work 24-7 for very little pay
E-mails were sent to Managers at all hours of the night, would wake up with a full in-box of e-mails received from 1AM - 4AM
Have to use your own lap-top and office equipment
If you are not located in San Fran don't expect to get promoted or taken seriously
Fired all management expect a few chosen ones only to rehire a few months later
Poor business plan
Sales goals are not clear and defined
Often ask Managers to step down into unpaid part-time sales people
Unrealistic Expectations in an uncertain industry

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Deal with Megan
Set clear goals for employees
Stop Firing at will

    I have been working at Plum District part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility of schedule, low pressure sales, ability to work from home, offers moms a good work/life balance while using skillset.

    Cons

    Decrease in commission structure, you are required to not only sell and close a deal but then you are only paid if your offer sells in your area which does not always happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain clear and consistent rules and regulations in all areas.

    I have been working at Plum District part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The only good thing about this company is the other employees. The connections that are made in your local communities with the businesses that you will partner with.

    Cons

    An ever changing (and not for the better) compensation package. Division Directors that are so money hungry and have been drinking the Kool Aid for so long that they don't realize or just don't care how they treat their sales people and all of their recently fired regional managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop abusing moms and get rid of your "for moms by moms" tag line as it is not a true testament of how you treat people. Do everyone a favor and file bankruptcy now so as to save more of your hard working employees the embarrassment of being let go suddenly and without just cause.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
