Great products and perks and fun people at corporate

Assistant Team Leader (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Aveda full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat 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.

ConsCorporate 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 Senior ManagementTurn 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
