Pros

Loved my boss. She was was very supportive with what we needed to sell. Love fragrance. Loved having flexible-ish hours and not being micromanaged.
Amazing pay

Cons

Application process is a little confusing and so is payment and punching in hours and sales.
NOT ENOUGH HOURS
No benefits
Not much growth career-wise

Advice to Management

Not much to say. You're doing the best with what you can do. This economy sucks. I'm lucky I still have a good job.

    Pros

    - A true 9 - 5 job. You are asked to clock (scan) in and out daily even though you are salaried
    - Small casual office (NY/FL) - Though most come to work dressed business casual, casual tends to work as well. The chairman/owner often comes to work in jeans and sneakers. The meetings aren't as formal or structured as they are with other CPG/ Beauty companies

    Cons

    - Benefits are not so great - Be very clear on what you are getting before you accept any offer. The biggest issue for most is that you're offered very little vacation, which isn't competitive with the industry/ professional level. Do not believe anyone when they say the New York/FL office is different. It isn't. There is no 401K matching and no bonuses below VP level
    - Most people are on a need-to-know basis which doesn't create a positive and open work environment
    - A lot of egos in a small space which contributes to unnecessary drama. One would think that in a small office most people would get along and be friendly toward one another and that isn't the case
    - Senior management turns a blind eye to bad behavior/ unprofessional conduct
    - There is no continuing education, management/ development trainings as you will find with other large corporations
    - No review process (annual or otherwise)
