Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Beauty Manager needs to me more motivated and commited to her team and store. Should be working to help those who want to, to get promoted.

    Pros

    Great compensation, work life balance, and benefits, and most people there are great to work with. Nice campus with lots of amenities and conveniences within the building. Great location in North Dallas to be single or raise a family.

    Cons

    Little room to advance. You have to be cross functional and be willing to move laterally for several years and learn other positions before being promoted. Otherwise, if you don't, you can easily become stuck in one place. Morale inside the company was really poor during the reorganization, and senior management's strategies, while exciting at first, seem to be losing steam, and stock price is a reflection of that.

    No opinion of CEO
  2. Typical retail with a lower than usual moral in the last 2 months.
