    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.

    Corporate Review NOT Consultant: Lacking Diversity in Leadership levels in many divisions

    I worked at Mary Kay full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not a myth, benefits are good if you exercise and take care of yourself. Prepare to share some details.

    Cons

    Group Think was somewhat rampant. Lack of diversity among leadership positions. Real information sharing doesn't really exist, not really a con but the way the company operates. Departments seem more combative with each other rather than collaborative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep improving and welcome honest feedback.
