    Pros

    Great people who love what they do Great employee benefits and work/life balance Beautiful office (U.S. headquarters) Fair base compensation / Good bonus structure

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted because no one ever leaves Promotions are often based on office politics instead of merit VERY behind with technology Lack of trust in senior management

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to young talent because you lose them quickly

    Pros

    One of Mary Kay's values is to treat others using the Golden Rule, and employees and leaders strive to do that daily. Our CEO believes in servant leadership. We all work together to achieve our mission of enriching women's lives. We offer the most rewarding opportunity in direct selling, and when you change a woman's life you also change her family's life. I enjoy what I do and who I work with. I am given new projects for my learning and growth that keep my job interesting. I still have bad days, but fewer bad days than I've had at other companies. Mary Kay isn't perfect, but many people are trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a highly innovative company, or one that funds a lot of research and development, or one where you can move up quickly, Mary Kay might not be the right fit for you.
