    Pros

    Working with consumer products, employees are valued, always work to be done, and there are many types of projects and products to work with.

    Cons

    Not a great location, little room to move up, company money is mostly tied up in marketing, little capital for manufacturing, but no discounts/free products for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Problems escalate when the solutions are band-aids, instead of preventing them from happening in the first place.

    Pros

    Great people, excellent chance to learn about the cosmetic industry. I was given many opportunities to advance during my time there.

    Cons

    Can be "click-ish"! If you're not in the inner circle, you will not be recognized or commended for you work. Turn over rate is very high. Many come in and find out it's not what they expected.

    Pros

    * High profile company with leading brands that are (arguably) quite glamorous.
    * Excellent learning environment, with a culture that encourages risk-taking and is not too process-driven/encumbered;
    * Exposure to all facets of the business--operations, marketing, sales--no matter what your role is;

    Cons

    * the nature of the industry means very long planning lead times and continual promotional development (which I suspect is a good thing, but sometimes can be stressful since the pace is so quick.)
    * very cut throat industry where share points are jockeyed around
    * depending on your level, politics can exist
    * high brand spend can sometimes come at the expense of profitability. Which means cuts in personnel, plants, restructuring, have been many in the past 5-8 years.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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