    Current Employee - Independent Beauty Consultant in Naperville, IL

    I have been working at Mary Kay part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You make your own hours and decide how hard you want to work. It's a very fun environment, lots of support, and you decide with whom you work.

    Cons

    It is very easy to over-order your inventory and get stuck with old product that you can not sell. You need to be ready and willing to find your own clientele, and able to build on your own network of customers in order to generate new connections. In order to advance, you need to build a large team of consultants underneath you.

    I worked at Mary Kay full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good salaries and bonuses.

    Cons

    Everything. The 4 stars that this company has comes from the sales consultants and not from the people who actually work there. This is the worst company I have ever worked for. Your "friends" are just waiting to stab you in the back. Employees are fired for the smallest things. If they don't like you, they will find some way to get rid of you. Just don't ever work for this company. Mary Kay would roll over in her grave if she knew how employees were being treated now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with dignity and respect. Actual corportate culture is the opposite of what they say their values are. Do what you say you will.
