I worked at Bare Escentuals

Pros

Fun, family-like atmosphere
Excellent management
Great training opportunities

Cons

In my opinion, there were not enough direct mentor opportunities, and career advancement was unclear.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I believe that having more opportunities to be mentored by upper management would be very beneficial, particularly in sales tactics.

    I have been working at Bare Escentuals full-time

    Pros

    Discounts, summer Fridays (although most of the time you can't leave early b/c there's too much work to do), salaries pretty competitive especially if you're an executive

    Cons

    Favortism, unprofessional work environment, under qualified, immature people in high paying, high power positions, back stabbing/throwing people under the bus is acceptable, no one takes accountability for their actions or projects. Long work hours, expected to take work home, expected to stay late.
    Just bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people in high positions with some experience. Stop allowing directors and above to be completely out of line. Unprofessional behavior is unprofessional. Stop making excuses for it and get people with skills both personal and professional.

    I have been working at Bare Escentuals full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    discount...people I work with are nice

    Cons

    The gratis sucks compared to other companies. They are horrible at communications, they never stick to anything they say, they change things all the time and make us look stupid to the clients. They make us compete with our own brand through other venders like sephora. They want us to sell a certain amount of newness yet,it launches first in other markets. The boutiques seems like an afterthought compared to what the other vendors get. The training is bad and they seem to have alot of turnover in home office in the last two years,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees will give you better results
