Great learning experience
Design Consultant/Sales (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – November 17, 2017
Although Roche Bobois as a brand is a very progressive and one of the most respected design companies in the world, the franchise (European Designs Inc.) was managed extremely poorly and work environment was very toxic, which was a leading cause of low employee motivation and high employee turn over. However by working in such a challenging environment, I gained a valuable experience, which prepared me for the next chapter in my life as a manager by learning all the things that a management should not do, which is equally important to understand to operate a successful business. I personally believe any negative experience has a positive purpose in life. So I was able to create a successful career in Roche Bobois despite all management issues (all stemmed from franchise practices) and gained unique strength.
