    I worked at SEACRET Direct full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    i can’t think of any at this point

    Cons

    Absolute worst company. Seacret is doomed due to extremely poor management. Band aid solutions to huge problems. Often owners mistreat employees. Expect employees to give every minute of their lives to the company. They don’t really care about their employees or agents. It’s all an act. Brutal company, worst management and ownership I’ve ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Just stop.

    We are truly sorry to read about your experience while working at Seacret. We only wish these concerns were brought to our attention while you were employed rather than after you left.

    I have been working at SEACRET Direct full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have always maintained, that just as working at any other company can be challenging at times, what makes it worthwhile at Seacret is the people. There is a real sense of everyone being willing to always pitch in to accomplish what needs to be done.

    Cons

    Communication can be lacking sometimes.

    I have been working at SEACRET Direct full-time

    Pros

    Having worked for Seacret for over 4 years now I can honestly write that I am very happy working with the people I see every day. I have made many positive changes within the company and have had a positive impact on many of the employees here. This is truly a family company and they take very good care of their employees.

    Cons

    Every company has their ups and downs, good times and bad times. And while we may not always agree on decisions made, at the end of the day we have a choice to work here [or at any company] or not to. Personally, I am very happy here.

    Advice to Management

    Again, every company has their ups and downs, good times and bad times. And while we may not always agree on decisions made, at the end of the day we have a choice to work here [or at any company] or not to. There have been many positive changes in Seacret these past few years and I am confident we have the right people in place to take Seacret to the next level. Personally, I am very happy here.

    Cons

    Management and misuse of talent;

    Advice to Management

    Rate employees on what they can do not on what someone says. I started from the ground floor and never felt valued

    Pros

    executives are blind and and you can get away with not doing your job, just agree with everything they say and nod your head. Rah Rah Rah

    Cons

    incredible demotivating environment. Can't ever do the right thing or voice a valid opinion. idiots running the asylum. great employees outside the family partnership -- beware

    Advice to Management

    let the people you hire run the place. you can't. too egotistical and selfish.

    Pros

    Manager and co workers were talented and cooperative in working towards a common goal. Manager was honest, transparent and worked hard for the team.

    Cons

    Short sightedness and unrealistic timelines made doing a task the right way nearly impossible. I am OK with once in a while having to do a project under the gun, but not on a constant basis at the whim of the owners. Not much planning went into developing a long term strategy or goals because we were so busy being reactionary. Owners are out of touch with the effort it takes to make a project successful.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to create realistic. long term goals. Develop a marketing strategy that makes sense and doesn't create chaos for the people who have to implement the strategy. Workers shouldn't be expected to work every weekend because things fails for not having enough time to develop and test.

    I worked at SEACRET Direct full-time

    Pros

    There aren’t many left, but the employees are hard working and team oriented. I had the pleasure of working with and learning from some very talented professionals. To be clear, I am talking about the worker bees and C-level executives, not ownership/partners.

    Cons

    The owners are self-absorbed, manipulative bullies who party all night then roll into the office late afternoon yelling and making demands, and expecting everyone to work late, weekends and even holidays to make it happen.

    They talk about community and make a big deal of their religious observation, but it's all for show. If you’re not immediate family or partner you don’t count. Employees are no more valued than the copy machine or coffee maker. They treat people horribly and don’t mind conducting unethical business if it will save money. These are NOT nice people.

    It’s management by temper tantrum and knee jerk reaction. Turnover at the executive level is extreme: Customer Care, Finance, Operations, IT and Marketing all turned over at least twice in the year I was there, and Marketing leadership is literally a revolving door because they take the brunt of the abuse.

    There are constant layoffs, terrible benefits, and zero work life balance. Whenever they get tired of a highly qualified professional advocating for proven strategies or pushing back, they replace them with a completely unqualified family friend. This place has burned out or chased away more talent than most companies this size will ever even see.

    Seriously, if you have ANY self-respect or professional pride, do not work here! I only give this place one star because it’s not possible to choose anything lower. Anyone giving a high rating has not worked at corporate, they are distributors who only see the staged events and public personas.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't care. This company is probably just a tax write off for their other businesses anyway.
