    Pros

    You control your future, your destiny, and your income, and your career path. Great prize, And amazing women that have blessed my life, as well as a relationship with God.

    Cons

    You get what you put into it. If your not afraid of hard work. The growth as a person. And are trainable, smart wome. You can do well at this company. No it's not going to fall in your lap, it takes time to build yoyr customer base. And the personal growth is so rewarding. But you have to be willing to do the work, and listen to your director.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job, the programs you do for women and children. The company with a heart. Thank you for changing so many women's lives.

  3. Mary Kay is an awesome company that supports women and all that they can accomplish.

    Pros

    Prizes and recognition are amazing, as is the motivation and support.

    Cons

    Minimum orders, having to wait until Week 2 of the month to order for delivery to arrive quickly, limited edition items aren't always available.

    Advice to Management

    Don't underestimate the demand for limited edition items. It just causes frustration for consultants.
