Great opportunity for money, but not sanity.

Pros

The brand itself and the quality of the goods it produces outshine it's competitors.

Cons

Directors and senior management are ineffective leaders and tend to micro-manage. The VP has made poor business decision that have cost many of the company's employees their jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would advise them to support their teams. A great manager gives good feedback and constructive criticism as well as giving praise where due in an effort to make their teams look good. If a manager highlights his/her team it only serves to make the manager shine as a leader, not deter from his/her own ability.

    I worked at Iredale Mineral Cosmetics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has a great product and performs as it should. The variety of channels in which to distribute the product line is vast and can be fun. As a new person to sales it's a great way to learn how to manage a territory and build relationships on many levels. Overall the pay is more beneficial for someone who is starting out in sales and the culture is relaxed with wonderful people at the corporate level to work with. Very family oriented staff.

    Cons

    - lacks personal growth opportunities
    - poor compensation package overall (was once very lucrative)
    - poor management
    - lack of direction
    - lack of customer focus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    change the management and listen to the sales consultants before you create new sales initiatives

    Pros

    The product is amazing--best in the industry. Medical benefits are fantastic. 401K w IMC contribution is a huge benefit.

    Cons

    NO training whatsoever for sales staff or management. Management is generally inept and are not held accountable for inconsistencies and bullying. HR department is a joke. They are also experiencing serious revenue issues due to overstretching expenses for the new building. No advancement possible, despite what is promised. Jane is insular and infallible and does not like dealing with any sort of conflict; Consequently, she suffers under the delusion that everything must be sunshine and roses at all times. Anyone with intelligence, imagination, or ambition will suffer disillusionment at the hands of a few people clawing their way over each other for their own agendas in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LIsten to sales staff, even when it's uncomfortable. Improve compensation; choose more realistic sales goals. Actively seek ongoing improvement in management and communication training.
