    Pros

    Fun environment, great people, great products. Company gives you a chance to grow as a professional and truly evaluates innovative ideas for expanding their business.

    Cons

    Compensation and Benefits are pitiful, especially for such a big company. To get to the next level, the company has to think big to compete against their competitors and it constantly thinks like a small enterprise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company still needs to develop some trainings to eliminate redundancies in work processes. It should also understand the concept of work-life balance.

    Pros

    Salary may be only thing which you can get here. Once you sold yourself, you don't own and control your life.

    Cons

    No Work Life Balance, Praise your Boss & Manager, One Man Show. Everything promotion/time-off depends on Yes BOSS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No management at All.

    I worked at Oriflame full-time

    Pros

    Good perks as parking and free products. Good location. Nice travelling and some people are very nice

    Cons

    None of the promises get effective and senior management are more concern to put blame in subordinates to explain why things don't get done. Senior management are always travelling to Stockholm and or within LATAM and little gets done on their end. Senior management is all expat with expat deals while local senior management and the rest of employees are given the lowest local working treatment (salary, vacations, relocation). Promotion plan exists as long as we are willing to take a hit or two on your salary otherwise, unexistant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of local workers, employees and Management as well. If you make promises, you need to keep them.

    - I would have appreciated a further insight on the current SC strategy issues. However I understand that for a short internship duration it wasn't essential.

    Pros

    Culture of the company
    Relaxed culture
    Truly believes in having fun while working
    Respect for all

    Cons

    Over the last few years company has been losing the human touch
    Always been Sales Focused however now becoming too aggressive at the cost of employees
    It has started to lose its old employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should try to retain the essence of the company. This is what made Oriflame what it is today. Losing its people in the long run may hurt the company.
