    I worked at Euro-Pro

    Pros

    Incredible growth Dynamic environment with room for learning and mistakes Company chewing up market share from Dyson Powerful direct to consumer business model

    Cons

    The company has a fundamental lack of processes which have resulted in senior executives making virtually all decisions. Growth driven by entry to mid-level team members that book long hours. High turnover negatively impacts employee morale.

    I worked at Euro-Pro full-time

    Pros

    There are some very nice people that you'll work with (if they can manage to stick it out). It's just a shame how this company treats them. The pay is decent, but consider it hazard pay and to help offset the cost of living in Boston.

    Cons

    I'm not sure Glassdoor will allow enough space to write all of the reasons not to work for Euro-Pro. Please, if you are reading this and actually considering working at Euro-Pro, I would tell you to run (not walk) the other direction. Look through LinkedIn for some of the hundreds of ex-EuroPro employees and contact some of the ones who were in the position that you might be applying for to get the straight story. Don't believe any of the positive reviews here, they are planted by employees incentivized by EP management to do so. You'll see a lot of common themes in the reviews here - no work-life balance, crushing expectations, micromanagement from the top, massive turnover, unethical business practices, unprofessional top management, lack of strategy, constantly shifting priorities, lack of communication, toxic environment, horrible working conditions. Don't say you weren't warned.

    I worked at Euro-Pro full-time

    Pros

    You might meet a few cool people along the way who entered the Thunder Dome (Euro Pro) as a result of being ambitious, hungry, driven professionals. These personalities are soon crushed into submission and most everyone ends up with a mild to severe anxiety disorder. But guys, don't worry, there are free bagels on Friday.

    Cons

    Every. single. thing. (Except some nice people who are tenacious and resilient, god love them.) Folks I could list it out for days, but I'm tired to my bones. There are a million consumer packaged goods companies, there are a million places to make your mark, so pick a place where you can trust your management to be your advocate. Good people are indeed there, but the culture is so aggressive that your armour is constantly up, making it difficult to forge true connections. If you want to mirror the success of others who have battled through a couple years for the salary upgrade and hard earned experience, just have a contingency plan for the 20 extra pounds you'll gain and the time you'll need to take after this experience to regain your sense of self.

    I worked at Euro-Pro full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people (individually) Great salary (for a reason- you do pay for it!) Good Health insurance CEO and President- even thought it is frustrating for some people because they are very involved, they are bright and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    There is a reason I am taking all this time writing this review- I don't want anybody else to make the same mistake I made. Here are some Cons: No work-life balance and I mean it. Forget about spending time with family, friends, doing your favorite hobbies. This will only work if you are a workaholic- . Please don't take this lightly. Culture- the senior management (most of them) have a 24/7 mentality, they like to micromanage and they are not receptive to change (even when they say they are) that equals a very stressful and frustrating environment. Because they have the 24/7 mentality they expect you to be the same way. One of the characteristics of a bad manager... People are treated like bodies/machines, not as humans- This is very sad! There is not one person I know from there that is happy working there; not one. Please believe all the bad reviews you see here. They are true. They may tell you differently because they need the bodies but it is not a good place to work at.
