Very flexible hours. The best work/life balance out there. Employees work autonomously.

Highly recommend. Job interview process in lengthy as they are very particular in finding the right fit. There are 5 steps that include a presentation.

Fulfilling work and great co-workers

I enjoy my job as a pet importer/exporter - it is an interesting job. It is also constantly challenging with little time to implement innovative processes. Management is misguided and possibly inept at providing solutions to problems of the front-line staff in a long-term perspective. The company culture will be very difficult to beat anywhere else. The sales and client care staff are unique, warm and wonderful people who care about doing a good job. Mid- and upper-management are wonderful people but they focus entirely too much on the future and not nearly enough on present problems.

Pros

company culture, unique business, you can bring pets to work

Cons

no 401K, lack of attention to real problems

Fun culture and passionate people

It would be hard to find a more challenging, fun work environment where you are are surrounded by people who care about you and the clients. The days fly by, and there all always opportunities to make improvements on the company's processes. Opportunities for advancement depend solely on company growth which has been present, but slow, so patience is required.

Pros

Early release Fridays, Flexible work from home policy

Cons

no 401k, little room for advancement

Could be a good place w/new management

Expect a lot of stress Pushy sales of over priced product customer relations supervision plays favorites micromanagement of everything customer relations management is discriminatory, upper management does nothing some of the people actually care about pets, not just numbers you can find better service for much less

Pros

good location

Cons

product too expensive, owners allow discriminatory customer relations supervision

confrontational management style

Where do I start. It is a very poorly managed company. "Senior" folks are in their 20's with little to no actual experience managing anything. Not much of a team environment. Everyone is out for themselves.When I first started, nothing was taught to me, I was expected to know everything. It is very hard to move up in the company. They seem to favor people for leadership positions who come from outside. Reorgs occur often which force high turnover rates.

Pros

downtown location

Cons

unpaid customer calls nights and weekends, few benefits
