    I worked at Jafra full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Generally, nice people to work with internally and in other departments. - Decent health care plans, especially for families - Great 401-K, company matches 100% up to 5% of your salary - Headquarters are in a nice location with multiple lunch options nearby - Cafeteria on-site with rotating menu options

    Cons

    - Low compensation especially for entry level - While certain departments had more promotions, other departments lacked promotions - Little vacation offered, and takes 5 years to get an additional week of vacation

    Advice to Management

    - Take the time and effort to give high ratings on yearly reviews for hardworking employees who go above and beyond their daily duties. - Don't be afraid to offer a promotion to your employees just because you think it might cause tension in your own department. Promotions should be deserved through hard work as well as the time spent with the company. - Suggest having an extra vacation day earned after each year of employment, and setting a maximum number.


  3. Complete waste of time, management is a joke.

    I worked at Jafra (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pays better than most freelance/agency gigs. Some free beauty products.

    Cons

    The job was not challenging in the least bit and no one seemed to really care about the business.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to write English! I was working as a copywriter and my supervisor would write: "red bellow" for read below.

    I worked at Jafra full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working to provide women the opportunity to make a living for themselves and their families is completely fulfilling. The products are great, specially the wrinkle creams. The people who work there are very helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    The original mission of its founders is what has made of this company's products excellent, however, after it has been sold to different companies over time, it has lost its essence.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a closer look at who gets hired for top positions. There's nothing more dangerous to a company than a toxic leader.
