    Pros

    Nice product line, nice gratis, went to Chicago for makeup training with new product

    Cons

    Numbers oriented business. More concerned about selling and making goals than forming genuine bonds with the customer. More Introductory training when beginning beauty advisor/counter manager positions would have been helpful

    Advice to Management

    Truly care about your employees! Their job satisfaction effects the customer experience!

    I worked at Lancome

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Carefree environment. People in generally are friendly.

    Cons

    High turnovers. No leadership, no structure and no planning. A lot of important roles take on by interns without any training and direction. A lot of unrealistic expectations. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Clean the house and hire people with the right experience.

    It's an independent contracting company. You can be let go for no reason at all. No benefits.

    Pros

    My co-workers were great. I still have kept friendships with a couple after leaving. The product line is high end and brings it's own clientele.

    Cons

    No cons, typical business manager was a bit of a pain in the ass but overall we worked well.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to micro-manage. We know what we are there for, we know we need sales to keep our job.

    Pros

    There was never a dull moment,

    Cons

    $5,000 goal for a gwp, with a couple weeks to achieve in addition to having to make your daily numbers. If youre going to work for lancome, dont do it at macys.... too much pressure!

    Advice to Management

    please dont hire anyone off the street, I work in your flagship store and notice the amount of subpar appearances for a luxury cosmetics line
