    I worked at Murad full-time

    Pros

    Some flexibility and good people, great products.

    Cons

    Terrible upper and middle management. Micro-managing, inexperienced, inefficient, poor decision makers at the helm. Extremely negative work environment. Revolving door with field staff and the caliber of people they hire is going down because their reputation is getting tarnished. Paralyzing work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Clean House in upper management positions or risk losing more good people. Key decision makers are not qualified for the positions they hold and are detrimental to the business and customer partnerships.

    I have been working at Murad full-time

    Pros

    The product. Dr. Murad. Brand philosophy.

    Cons

    Management is incapable of recognizing talent and treats employees as disposable. It is impossible to overcome the rampant dishonesty, intimidation, and disrespect this company tolerates. I would not recommend this company to any professional. It has definitely been the low point to my overall successful career. Waste of time and effort.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Nobody works hard so you look like a superstar if you put in your 40 hours

    Family runs the business, revolving door at the executive level, no vision, worst employer I had the displeasure of working for, everyone makes up their title, executive wannabe training ground

    I have been working at Murad full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great family feel, open door policy, can always go to management and be heard. I dont understand the negative reviews regarding HR. They are wonderful team! Anytime I have a question or concern, it is answered and or resolved. Perhaps the people complaining about HR are/were poor performers, they are usually the ones that complain about everything.

    Cons

    Change. It can be positive and negative. It depends on how you as a person handle and adapt to change. Face it, you just need to be flexible and adaptable and you will succeed here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to feedback from your employees.

    I have been working at Murad full-time

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers at the office. Beautiful new office space. The company also fosters a good work-life balance. The CEO is nice.

    Cons

    The company lacks direction with no clear company goals. HR is not very effective or efficient. Big turnover in leadership within the past year. Poor office politics. Company shows no loyalty to employees with the recent amount of layoffs and bringing in agencies and freelancers as cheaper replacements.
