    I have been working at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Energetic workforce that is generally very positive and encouraging (think the opposite of a draining workplace). -Pays on time - a lot of people think this is a given but you'll be surprised how bad other employers are about this. -Opportunity to rise as it's a growing company that is expanding organically. There isn't a lot of formal career progression mapped out, but I know they're working to fix this... quickly.

    Cons

    -Being a younger company, some areas/depts don't have as much structure. However in other ways this is a positive (more flexibility, less red tape, more opportunity to craft your own change).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The company has grown rapidly and will start to plateau. This is where your resolve to run a stable ship will be valuable... also don't try to take the company!

    I have been working at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time

    Pros

    - high-growth, fast-paced environment - some of the most passionate people work here - opportunities to learn, build and create. - growth is there if you are proactive and can function outside of what's "traditional".

    Cons

    - not clear on what the company is about - values, purpose, etc. - lack of structure and processes - this will be important to focus on as the company continues to grow.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to get a CEO and start focusing on culture and developing your employees. Build your foundation now, so you are solid for the future.

    I have been working at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time

    Pros

    Great culture. Many talented people working at head office. Very little ego, politics, finger-pointing, smack talking. Fast paced and multi-faceted but overall low stress.

    Cons

    Process and systems still need some work, as the company has gone from small to big very quickly. Sometimes a little chaotic with the lack of process. Pay is on the lower side of the spectrum compared to other companies in the same industry.

    Advice to Management

    Work on developing more structured processes and systems and consider implementing more competitive compensation packages in order to keep attracting and keeping awesome talent.

    Cons

    Fast paced sometimes informal work environment. Constantly changing workload. Must be agile and resilient to work with the flow. Must be able to work with many levels of communication. Sink or swim environment, you are responsible for a lot of your own training and learning on the job. Important to be multi-faceted in your job as demands change, you must keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep finding people who are excited and agile in their work to bring onto the team. Ensure people have a fair level of experience and are interested in having a multi-faceted job description. People who need constant reassurance or hand holding need not apply.
