    Pros

    Nice Benefits, people and an overall great place to come to work.

    Cons

    As with any company communication was lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step into the shoes of the "people" for a moment and see what is really happening out in the workforce.

    I worked at Cookie Lee part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Jewelry is beautiful, trendy and affordable.

    Cons

    My upline was awful. We did a show together and she actually stole from me. Incentives from her were pieces of used jewelry, usually with a missing stone or two. She would show up at events I was working and often times would set up a booth at events knowing I was already booked. The whole Cookie Lee experience was awful and very costly to me. I am still working a part time job just to pay off my Cookie Lee debts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your consultants behaviors.

    Pros

    The core vision, mission and values that the company strives to achieve are very admirable. There are fun events that the company creates for their independent consultants and the company is predominantly women which is very empowering.

    Cons

    The company seems to get caught up in childish behavior, the senior staff do not set very good examples and there is not a lot of room for creativity. 3 company wide lay offs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about your team and how much they support your postion and senior staff.

    Very nice people work there. However, their consultants are overpaid while the employees are underpaid.

    Pros

    They try to foster a family feeling. Key word is 'Try'

    Cons

    If you are a male then you can forget about moving up with this companmy. Just gain experience and move on before you get canned or laid off. And heaven forbod about speaking up. Speaking up only leads to write ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to get their heads out of the sand and spend money in the right place. Lots of times they justspend money foolishly and get no results from it. Company lacks major growth anythime soon unless changes or made to senior management. No real experience in upper managment. They just fly by the seats of their pants.

    Pros

    great company support
    people are fantastic-other consultants and managers
    great perks-ways to earn cruises and extra prizes

    Cons

    hard to move your business if you do not have the time to devote to it-it is direct sales and it works as hard as you do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    would be helpful if they shared the "click" leads with all consultants if they want them not only the high performing ones

    Pros

    Cookie Lee is a great way to earn extra money and work with people. Jewelry always stays trendy and affordable especially compared to other home party companies.

    Cons

    It can be hard to keep your downline on track to keep sales up as it is sometimes based on their network and personality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that Cookie Lee management does a good job at keeping consultants happy with their constant attention to website updates and fulfilling orders on a timely fashion
