    Pros

    It's hard not to love this job. Brand is amazing, growing by the minute, and they have beautiful offices that make you want to come to work every day.

    Cons

    ThIs is a big brand that grew too fast from their early entrepreneurial state, therefore, there's an epidemic of very clueless characters holding upper management/executive positions who have no business being there. HR department doesn't foster a culture of appreciation, motivation and growth. Overall public sentiment is that you are just 'stuck'.

    High pressure sales/ work environment. There is not clear career paths from the counters to the corporate office.

    Pros

    The product gratis twice a year is nice, and the starting hourly wage is decent. However, you could easily make more money per hour in a spa setting. Raises also only occur once per year.

    Cons

    The scheduling is terrible. Completely different week to week, varying days every week and vary times. Making it very difficult to rebook clientele, and very difficult to maintain any type of work life balance. They basically only care about their bottom line and whether or not you sell products. However, if you do make your goals positive recognition is never given.

    Advice to Management

    The scheduling is terrible. Completely different week to week, varying days every week and vary times. Making it very difficult to rebook clientele, and very difficult to maintain any type of work life balance.

    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 Management

    Continue to support and educate employees
