    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.

  2. No direction.

    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.

    Pros

    The family run business REALLY did value it's employees. Family always came first and work life balance was part of Dr. Murad's mission statement. Employee appreciation (cards, products, little thank yous), volunteer days, community outreach, special celebrations in the office, etc... made it really wonderful to work here. Also, the leadership committee was making big strides in changing the future of this company and putting together strategic plans to help maintain the equity of this brand. Plus, it was nice to work for a company who's products REALLY do work! I'm a loyal Murad customer, even though I'm no longer an employee.

    Cons

    Lots of office politics (as expected for a smaller family run business), poor technology systems which made it really hard to do your job, horrible work space planning (there was literally fighting between departments when an office or cubicle opened up and many new employees didn't even sit near their departments!) and a weak HR department that could have really helped drive positive change in the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to find a way to stop "airing their dirty laundry" to the entire company; HR needs to find a stronger voice in the company... AND PLEASE put someone else in charge of work space planning! It's really demotivating as a new employee and department to have poor space.
