Pros

Great skincare products. (Free for employees). Flexible work schedule and quality product within a growing industry. Likely to be acquired by a larger company.

Cons

Marketing has all the responsibility but no ability to make decisions. The VP of Sales makes all of the decisions. They have gone through two full marketing teams within the past 4 years. High turnover, with poor inexperienced management.

Advice to Management

Let marketing guide the product development, messaging and future direction of the company. Time to stop operating like a small company. Empower the marketing department.

    Pros

    Environment. Beautiful offices. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Lack of strategic direction. Acrimony among executive team.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out where you want the company to go and work together to get I there. Of course, this all quite moot because the company has been acquired by Valeant Pharmaceuticals.
