An Insider's view of Pampered Chef

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

With the flexible PTO policy I have found it very easy to find a great work life balance. I understand the parts of the year that I will be busy so I plan my vacations around that. I appreciate that they trust me to get my work done and I can still find time for the things I am passionate about outside of work!
