    I worked at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time

    Pros

    Great from the outside but gets ugly very quickly
    Cool office
    Some staff are brilliant and great to work with

    Cons

    This is all fake culture with people getting more and more frustrated which, results in a very toxic environment. Some departments are more friendly than others but in general this work culture is about diminishing each others, people are young with no experience and get extremely bad compensation for their work. It is disrespectful at all levels. These days, a lot of people think looks are the most important thing, get real.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bragging and start to work to actually support for your people. You are spreading and nurturing an arrogant environment

    Pros

    The team at herschel is a great group of people. A lot of fun young, inspiring co-workers.

    Equal pay is hard to come by. They have a ways to go in terms of figuring out compensation.

    Invest in your employees and hire more senior management.

    I worked at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun & flashy work environment. Great talented co-workers

    Cons

    Haven't worked out how to compensate employees properly. There is a lack of understanding of how to help employees live the lives they are expected to live. Employees are paid much below the industry standard and it is thought that because the work environment is so fun that this makes up for it, when in fact most employees find it hard to pay rent or live in the downtown vancouver area.

    Advice to Management

    Employees often feel underappreciated. Major office improvements are made, but there are no improvements made to employee quality of life. The pay does not reflect what is seen on the walls. Just remember how hard everyone works and remember to show them that in the form of benefits and work life balance.

    Pros

    I am supported every day to go outside of the box and to make ideas a reality. We have a work hard/play hard environment where everyone is encouraged to be themselves. On top of that, I get to work alongside some of the most talented people in the industry.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of anything.

    Hi! Thanks for your review! We have just reserved some parking spaces at a nearby lot - this should help with the parking issues :)

    Pros

    Herschel is an amazing place to work. Everyone who works here loves the brand and loves coming to work everyday. It is dynamic, exciting, collaborative, and positive! The office is in a great space and the kitchen is filled with snacks (bagels!), coffee, and juice! There are company softball and soccer teams, and people frequently spend time together outside of work hours. The office's location in Railtown allows you to step out to Gastown or Chinatown for lunch or after-work drinks. Love working here!

    Cons

    No cons - I really enjoy working here.

    Exciting, fast-paced, dynamic organization. Great place for impact players to build their careers. We have a lot of fun getting things done.

    The office is running out of space and can be a little chaotic. Not good for those who like predictable days. Extreme growth can be challenging.

    Our new space downstairs will be amazing, but will take a couple of months to renovate. We are also looking at other immediate alternatives to help support us through this period of growth. Thank ... More

    You will work with the most amazing people. The atmosphere of company quite amazing. everyone treats people like family member. Great company benefits other than insurance plan. Good as a beginning job.

    Cons

    very low salary compare to the amount of work. It's very enjoyable while you work, but you will sigh after you check your bank status.
