    Pros

    Gratis every 6months, Free training, hours through Macy's is ok. Clients are sweet.

    Cons

    Goals, goal, and commission based. Gift every 5-6months. Cold calls, replenish clients, practically you're preselling every day and constant events though Lancôme and Macy's!

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring counter mangers at 19. Seriously.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Obtainable goals and gratis for reaching them. They pay you to go to special Lancôme training. It's approx 4 days. Hotel, food, and has paid for. The product are high quality. It's an all around great company.

    Cons

    The dress code is all black with a vest jacket. The location I work at (inside Macy's) conserves electricity and never uses the AC. Covered in black from head to toe, it can get very hot; especially when I'm constantly moving. Sleeveless top are prohibited (even though the vest jacket is sleeveless).

    Advice to Management

    Management is always dropping in and stays involved. They are great at listening to, and fixing any issues. They encourage the employees to reach their goals and use positive reinforcement.

    Pros

    Working with the best in the industry who are motivated to target every ethnicity. The believe in professional growth and on the job training.

    Cons

    No cons, seriously! The innovation at Lancome was so rewarding! I was lucky to work with Kerry Diamond, Vanessa Dabich and Kate Babb. Positive women who not only have fun but create change. The best work experience I ever had.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire people who think out of the back. It was refreshing to see a diverse company that are open to forward thinkers.

    Pros

    I've been with Lancome for a year and a half and have been promoted 3 times! They treat their employees like gold! You get free products all the time. I've worked for many lines but I never want to leave Lancome.

    Cons

    I literally have no complaints.

    Keep doing what you are doing because I never want to leave.
