Easily the worst job I've ever had at the shadiest company I've ever worked for To say that I had a negative experience in my time at Limeade would be an understatement. Limeade has two distinct brands - one that?s shiny and forward-thinking, one that purports to care about its employees and bring well-being into the world. Then there?s the Limeade brand I experienced, the one that cares more about money than it does about legitimate concerns from employees, the one that gaslit me repeatedly, the one that has values posted on the wall but doesn?t actually appreciate when employees put those values into practice. Long story short: It took 4 months and 8 interviews to get what was sold to me as a mid-level strategic role, building a wellness program and employee events for a large customer--essentially an outsourced wellness program coordinator. I was told the interview process would be about 5-6 weeks and would have 4-5 interviews--this should have been my first clue that this company has no idea what they?re doing. When I arrived to my customer, I performed tasks like hanging up signs, unloading boxes, creating low-level communications that would never see the light of day due to the critical nature of the customer, handing out promo items, sitting through meandering meetings where my opinions were not only not valued but straight up scoffed at like I was stupid. I was told to not speak to anyone except for my customer day-to-day contact--a far cry from what was sold to me during the recruitment process, that this would be a role where I would work with department leaders to bring a culture of wellness to the company. I began raising concerns about the differences between my posted job description and the tasks I was performing (and the way I was being treated at the customer site) less than 2 months into my employ, and continued doing so on a weekly basis. I repeatedly asked for role clarity between myself and several others working on the account. Multiple people said multiple times that they would come out for an onsite meeting to help figure out the disconnect. The problem was so much bigger than me, and yet even though I was enacting Limeade?s values of ?Own It,? ?Be It,? and ?Speak Plainly,? no one on the Limeade team took me seriously and made me feel like I was the problem, when the reality was that applied to a job that didn't exist, and Limeade had absolutely zero intention of making it exist so as to not disturb the arrangements they had with the customer. Not once did anyone from Limeade get on a plane and come see the conditions I was working in--my work and ideas ridiculed, my schedule dictated to me by the minute, doing the same tasks as the department?s intern and eventually absorbing those tasks when the customer failed to fill the intern role. I could go on, but I think you get the idea. Limeade, beyond the shadow of a doubt, failed me, and ultimately failed themselves. I would have worked so hard for this company if I believed they had my back, but they showed me they didn't, decision after decision.
