    Long history of decline - hope it's improved since I've left, as they have great brands.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in New York, NY (US)

    Pros

    Beauty category is a fun space, when you get to spend time on the brand, marketing and new product innovation. There are some great individual people there, if you look.

    Cons

    While I was there, it seemed management would always operate with tied hands, answering to majority shareholder who lacks ability to manage the company. We spent too much time on non-value added tasks, nothing to do with marketing, brands, or consumer - e.g. reformatting spreadsheets based on who's in charge that day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in experienced brand marketers with success running and turning around businesses - and let them do what they do best. Hold on to the best talent by keeping them happy and creating a positive, open culture.

    Pros

    They give some a chance to grow from within

    Cons

    You must be a player to stay, golf, parties, and other things. It is not enough to put in long hours, but you must play after work with the higher ups if you want to stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop allowing your directors to treat supervisors as thought they were complete idiots. I had one director admit he had threatened an employee. When it was brought tot he attention to upper management it was denied and dropped.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)

    Pros

    Many long term employees who care about the business.
    Opportunities are there if you work hard and are focused..

    Cons

    The market category is volatile; when the company prospers employees do; when the economy is flat, that is when changes are made. Basic business principals followed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your your biggest assets --- your employees

    Pros

    Working there is not very hard. They give you quality training to be able to handle every situation you're going thru.

    Cons

    Honeslty no bad comments. The only downside maybe would be is choosing between your first priority when emergency happens like example family emergencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I cant come up with an advise for the particular company, I thinks the business itself does eveything very well

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)

    Pros

    The people here were generally very nice and very smart. They were happy to teach you whatever they knew The standards for job competency are high and you will be forced to develop excellent technical skills if you want to keep yours. The products are very nice and amazingly creative considering that they do not have alot of money to invest in the business. If you are not a hard worker you will be unhappy here; this is not a place where you can coast and maintain an under the radar existence.

    Cons

    Financially shaky
    No hesitancy in firing people; somewhat brutal in that respect
    Could be better about disciplining problem managers - they are more concerned about performance here, sometimes don't care enough about employee morale or satisfaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Historical hires are fired too readily whenever they bring in a new management team, and then a few years later that management team is thrown out and the whole process begins again. Maybe it would be good to question new management who wants to come in and fire everyone and bring in their own people.
