    I worked at Euro-Pro full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Cash, they pay pretty well

    Cons

    Everything else... Caustic, humiliating, downright nasty.

    Advice to Management

    Sell up, cash in, spend more time with your families.

      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.

      Advice to Management

      There is an opportunity for the leadership of the company to delegate more. Also to review the reasons why there has been so much turnover despite the high growth profile of the company. Training is not a core competency of the company and therefore a greater opportunity for employee development longer term.

      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. ...

      Advice to Management

      Your egos wouldn't possibly let you believe that you need to change, but at some point the house of cards will come crashing down. There are ways to be successful in business without ruining people's lives. Trusting and empowering your employees would be a great start.

      Pros

      Fast Paced; Always Changing; Never a dull moment; free breakfast on Fridays; free lunch many days; opportunity for travel; opportunities to be in front of senior management

      Cons

      Non-stop; expected to be on email 24/7; China travel is not for everyone

      Advice to Management

      Value your current employees and work very hard to retain the very good ones; promote from within

      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...

      Advice to Management

      Get new management to help manage current management on how to manage their multiple managers in a managerial way. Or just like, keep doing it the way you're currently doing it. Make a lot of money in the next 5 years, hit the plateau, lose your top guns, encounter a couple HR snafus, see how it goes ya know. I mean people say Steve Jobs was like this incredible genius-jerk but Apple still exists. It doesn't mean the...

      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...

      Advice to Management

      Culture is driven by management, don't ask yourselves why the culture is the way it is. It is because of you. When you start treating people like people and not bodies, and when you start to understand people's needs better that is when things will change. It is about being humans.

        I have been working at Euro-Pro full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        1. Pay is higher than most companies. 2. Fast paced, definitely not boring. 3. Great workers

        Cons

        1. No life - work 24x7 to keep up with all the work. 2. Belittled when you are not up to date on project tasks that occurred over night. 3. Live in fear of being fired.

        Advice to Management

        1. Stop being a Mark puppets who just do what he says. 2. Workers have great ideas, listen to them.

        Although they hire smart people, designs and product ideas are driven by what the 'Marks' want, teams spend most of their time making those ideas work- let people do their jobs! You'll go through more managers in your tenure here than you would if you switched jobs every 6 months Clique based promotions - your skill sets are irrelevant No work life balance, plan to work through your vacation, at night on weekdays...
