    I worked at BeneFit Cosmetics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly and professional coworkers. Management loves answering questions and praises you for asking. Continuous positive reinforcement. Hard work never goes unnoticed. Employees are encouraged to be creative and use out of the box thinking.

    Cons

    The company struggles with visibility among other brands, even though they're unique culture should have no problem standing out. But, in retrospect, the customers that love Benefit's products are more strongly brand loyal than most companies' customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support and educate employees

    Pros

    The pay and gratis is great! Fast paced makes the time go by fast

    Cons

    It's a division between the Counter manager and Benefit employees. My RAM is disrespectful, talks down upon you and focuses too much on the negative. Needs help in coaching fellow team members by being constructive and not destructive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management is to have more trust and patients in your Lead Aestheticans and be more open to ideas. Management should hire RAMs with more experience in the beauty field itself or have more training in the field
