    Pros

    A family owned company that offers an inovative and quality product. Collaborative work environment composed of passionate and commited team members. You are a name and not a number! Benefits are generous and Clarins is one of the few beauty compaines that still offer a pension.

    Cons

    It sometimes seemed as if everyone was spread a bit thin. But these days this seems to be the norm. Overall I would still say it was a great place to work!

    Pros

    I enjoy working with Clarins so much. They treat you well and give you the proper training and skills you need to sell your products.

    Cons

    No benefits, and its only a seasonal position

    ZERO Work-Life Balance, basically you are expected to work 24-7

    Pros

    AE Compensation is great if you come from outside the company and the health care benefits are terrific too.
    The people who work in NYC office as well as the Distribution office are all there to help you when you need it and help make your job easier.
    The heritage and company philosophy are feel good true stories and the product is one you stand proudly behind.

    Cons

    Management teams are ruthless! Emails sent to you all hours of day and night as well as every day of the week including Sundays and holidays. You are expected to work on holidays or asked too at the last minute even though they are company paid days off. ** Everything is urgent and last minute with this team. You are constantly given additional projects that are due ASAP with the expectation of getting your current projects and objectives done timely. It's very hard to be organized or prioritize your business with such poor planning from your supervisors, however that said, its usually because poor planning came down corporately from the top. ** Lack of respect for your personal life as outlined above. ** Compensation if you are promoted from inside the company is very weak. ** High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your people! Just because you as a manager may not have a life outside of your job doesn't mean everyone else has to follow your model. Getting the respect of your people in the end will help you shine.

    Pros

    If you are already established in your career and come to Clarins, you will be very happy with the company.
    Some of the reasons:
    Team based, always have a support system
    Great Atmosphere, good relationships between employees
    Amazing Products
    Gratis twice per year

    Cons

    If you are an entry-level or lower level employee, it is very difficult to move up the ladder.
    Expected to work long hours
    Not much room for promotions and advancement, little room for growth
    Could be paid more elsewhere

  10. Great work/life balance, but not a lot of compensation to enjoy that time off.

    Pros

    - Coworkers are friendly and willing to answer your questions
    - Since it is a small company, you get to have a good personal relationship with some of your coworkers
    - CEO meets every new employee and knows them by name
    - Great hours. A normal work day is around 8:30AM-6PM. Summer Fridays are also a nice bonus
    - Benefits are competitive
    - Values community service
    - Product gratis is generous

    Cons

    - Very minimal room for growth. Even when a position is open, the company likes to hire from the outside rather than promote from within.
    - Compensation is below what competitors offer
    - Not a lot of encouragement for personal growth

    Pros

    Beautiful products, philosophy and history
    Family owned
    Philanthropic endeavors are admirable and consistent

    Cons

    Company management is inexperienced and misdirected
    Account Executives are responsible to too much of the workload and receive little direction or support...only blame.
    Micromanagement bordering on harassment...6 days a week, with no acknowledgement of personal time or work/life balance.
    New York office positions continue to be added, while the field sales forces continues to be cut back.

    Advice to Management

    ...they would not accept advice, even if it was offered. "They don't want to know what the don't already know"
