    Pros

    Decent pay. No Sundays. Consult offices are fairly nice while HQ in Beverly Hills is shabby.

    Cons

    counselors are not always honest when telling patients that they may need several hair transplants or that most of the people used in their advertising are employees. Lots of unqualified leads. Lots of dialer work calling patients all over the country. What a waste of time.

    Tough company to work for

    Pros

    From a sales perspective it is very nice to not have to cold call and have sales appointments set up for you. Also, the offices are located in nice office buildings and a comfortable work environment is provided.

    Cons

    During the time I worked for Bosley (5 years), they were continually changing things like the compensation plan (always seemed to be decreasing our compensation), the job requirements (like calls required, duties, etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally everyone I worked with felt like we were continually asked to do more but receive less in compensation. People like to know their salaries will increase over time and also, most felt like management did not appreciate them. If you have to lower pay, why not offer 4 day work week or something will at least keep employees happy?

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly. Free filtered water and bathroom access and the occasional 15 minute lunch break.

    Cons

    Mgmt team leads through fear and intimidation, its clear that none of them have ever had any mgmt experience. Capped earnings due to limited capacity and sales tiers that change every few months...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employees like children. Listen to employee ideas. Ask your employees to review managers.

    Pros

    Upper management/leadership team seem to have open door policy, opportunities for growth, good performance review execution, benefits and free parking.

    Cons

    Seemed like the budget was so strict that the culture was sometimes lacking, not enough get togethers outside of work to build team bonding.

    Pros

    Good overall environment and nice people to work with. I've been here many years, as have most of the employees and that says something right there. Good job Bosley!

    Cons

    Occasional long days. 401k matching would be nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look at all levels of employees for growth

    Pros

    - Small groups of people are friendly

    Cons

    - Lack of upper management oversight
    - Middle managers interdepartmental politics and bullying
    - Never ending politics within departments
    - No opportunities for professional advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at your middle managers, they are wasting vast company resources and lowering employee morale. They are not acting in the best interests of the company using the company as a means to earn kick backs and perks from vendors.

    Pros

    great people...for the most part

    Cons

    commission (variable pay) plan is a flat office goal which is the same for every month of the year. plus regardless of an individual's personal success your commission is based on the office as a whole meeting goals and then splitting commissions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    change comp plan.
