    Started out as a good experience, rapidly went downhill

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

    Pros

    Amazing training. Amazing products. Other girls on counter are all lovely. Build up nice base of loyal customer. Allocation.

    Cons

    One word: management. Absolute shambles. Might not be the same allover the country but certainly the area I worked in was embarrassingly bad. One manager in particular is nothing but a bully who belittles everybody around her. I won't go into details but basically I felt I had to leave because of poor managerial decisions and unfair treatment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So many things I could say I would not know where to start. A good shakeup of the management and bringing new people in who know what they are doing is needed.

    Pros

    the people are like family and my boss is so supportive and is the best manager anyone can ever ask for.

    There is not enough help available. There is a lot of work with long hours. Hard to balance sometimes.

    Pros

    Bezahlung ziemlich unattraktiv,

    abgeknickt werden muss, und man dort nicht begreift, dass Deutschland anders
    funktioniert als Frankreich.

    Rather unattractive payment, not very many career opportunities, not much creativity as everything has to be accepted by France and they do not want to understand that Germany works differently then France
