    I have been working at NARS Cosmetics full-time

    Pros

    Great products and most people in the company are great friendly..

    Cons

    Senior management is not up to par. I don't have equal compensation for my work. Others that holds the same title makes about 10% more in salary for doing the same amount of work. Whenever I speak about an increase I am shut out before I state my case.
    Unless you "rub shoulders with the right people" you won't be climbing the corporate ladder for awhile... Company only values senior management's option and I definitely do not feel that the opinion of the "little people" matters. Corporate events are made optional but in reality they are mandatory because if you don't attend it is frowned upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look around and realize that any employee in lower management is also an asset, without us helping senior management the company wouldn't run either. Compensation is the key to happiness for many of us to are living paycheck to paycheck trying to support ourselves and /or a family. We come to work smiling because we have to not because we are happy.
