I worked at Napoleon Perdis full-time for less than a year
Pros – Experience working in a makeup related company, being around some level of glamour, exposure to different areas of the brand marketing and development, pay is okay for the positions.
Cons – Napoleon himself is a HUGE problem. The HR is a huge problem, nobody seems happy, your job hangs on little things like not placing a doily under a teacup when serving it. Napoleon (the actual man) finds small reasons to fire girls left and right, they have a huge turnover. Most agencies won't even work with this company because of him and the way he runs his company. He is not all he hypes himself up to be.
Advice to Senior Management – Be clear about what you want, communicate, treat candidates with respect, run your business like a business, inform Napoleon of his lack of education in hiring and workers he "likes", be more organized on the stock and inter-office forefront, stop hiring rude people, don't act like the company is as big as you'd like it to be yet, I can assure you it is VERY unknown in the U.S. You're still getting started....
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
