I have been working at Aveda full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great product education and coaching style. Soils ade easily developed here. Great product discount. Made in America, plant based products good for the environment. Aveda supports fair trade and partners with rural areas of the world to source ingredients while finding ways to combat global climate change.

Cons

Corporate has fun, and maybe too much fun. Sometimes ideas become after thoughts and tools come at the wrong times. Communication at corporate isn't always good which effects the business of the stores. We are expected to do much more then manage a retail store like plan monthly events, style hair, give "mini" facials and full faces of makeup, as unliscensed "professionals" purely for product demonstration but usually is considered a service to be paid for at a salon.

Advice to Management

Turn yourself over and take a promotion when its offered. Managers often stay with aveda so long their assistants have no room to move and end up quitting after enough time has passed without growth.

    I have been working at Aveda full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary and Benefits Outside sales

    Cons

    No work Life Balance Managers are not aware of the customers in the field. Managers lead by looking at paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the old way of involvement in salons and stop the silly paperwork. You are loosing market share in the salons because of lack of involvement and opening other doors near by good accounts.
