Waitress/Server (Former Employee) –  Texarkana, ARApril 9, 2017
The management was poor and the people were unwilling to communicate clearly. There were many times I would get into trouble because of a change in the schedule I was not made aware of.
Pros
Steady income
Cons
Poor hour and management.

Email Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VAFebruary 15, 2017
This place is hemorrhaging employees of all levels. Fishbowl was a great place to work before the CEO change (see glassdoor for more information on that) in 2014, however it has been a steady decline ever since. Poor examples of leadership, no communication among departments, and managers that are promoted based on "seniority" and not based on experience/talent.

Many employees have quit after a mere 6-12 months in the position, which should be a bright red flag to the department head etc., however excuses are constantly made and leadership does not accept responsibility for departmental flaws.

If you like bagels and coworker friends, this is the place for you. However, do not expect to remain in the company for long as it will eventually drive you out like everyone else.
Pros
Bagel Fridays and great coworkers
Cons
Intolerable management/expectations. Salary is low for industry/area.

Human Resources Manager (Current Employee) –  St. Louis Park, MNApril 2, 2015
The hardest part of the job was the location in St. Louis Park as my commute was tough from the South Metro. Fast-growing and fast paced culture. Employees are awesome!

Professional Services (Current Employee) –  Alexandria, VAMarch 25, 2013
Largely a good place to work. Fun co-workers and nice CEO. Can be long hours at times. Best to talk to a variety of people who work there when interviewing to get a better sense of what the group dynamics are and the satisfaction level.
Pros
bagel friday and happy hours on the deck
Cons
some managers better than others for recognition and advancement
