    I worked at Pure Romance full-time

    Pros

    If you are a consultant or in the CEO’s inner circle then you are golden, but for those outside it’s harder. You work long hours and it goes unnoticed. Small mistakes can result in termination if a consultant is involved and the turnover is very high

    Cons

    Most of the employees are good people and nice to talk to

    I have been working at Pure Romance full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Fantastic company to work for and to be a part of every day. It’s a fun, stimulating environment that is never dull and always full of activity. There are numerous opportunities available and the best part is being consistently challenged and encouraged to be the best versions of ourselves. The culture provides a blended balance of individual contribution with team collaboration.

    Cons

    It's subjective to each. We drive hard and demand quality work, all in a very fast paced environment that is ever-changing. What some might view as a con is also what drives some of the pros.

    I have been working at Pure Romance full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I started my career right out of college with Pure Romance. I have grown immensely over my past years and could not be more thankful for everything this company has done for me. This is a business that values hard work and effort. The CEO is never too good to get his hands dirty. He truly inspires to be the best version of yourself. Hard work never goes unnoticed. Pure Romance has been patient and steadfast in helping me grow each day in my career.

    Cons

    Fast-paced work environment, but you are given every tool in order to succeed

    Pros

    Opportunity to work directly with CEO and founder on future strategy and looks. Great team that knows how to hustle and turn solid projects quicker than any shop in town.

    Cons

    If you can’t deal with changes on the fly - it’s not for you

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Pure Romance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast-paced culture that is willing to listen to ideas at all levels and the company is willing/able to pivot as needed to continue growing, even in situations like the 2020 pandemic. If you are there to work and not just be a cog in the machine being told what to do, you will grow quickly.

    Cons

    Sometimes this "pro" can be a con as far as work/life balance goes, but the teams you are working with makes it less of an issue than at other fast-paced companies I have worked for.

    I worked at Pure Romance part-time

    Pros

    You meet other likeminded women.

    Cons

    You have to spend to start, and continue spending to keep inventory. It’s a scam.
