    Long term high Performance employee

    Executive Director Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent products that are frequently outstanding. SKINCARE is their forte.

    ConsPoor human resource development. Inconsistent marketing poor senior sales leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not encourage behind the scenes whispers about an employee. have open upfront conversation directly with the employee before any evaluation is made. Basing evaluations on unsubstantiated information is not the hallmark of a great organization .

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Awful

    Lacki (Current Employee) Rutherford, NJ

    ProsI can't think of one because this company is the worst. Disorganized, micro managed, no advancement, no basic decency

    ConsThere are too many to mention and each department is worse than then next. They have 2 black employees in a company of 100 people

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou know it all already and don't want my advice

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Wastew oWWf

    Office Worker (Former Employee) Oakland, NJ

    Pros35 hour work week with paid holidays off. Nice discount on overpriced products. Two times a year you get $500 worth of free products.

    ConsIf you are not a manager you are non existent. There is no opportunity to grow or even be heard. If you have an idea you are considered a threat to the management. Pay rate is low, benefits costs are high. Raises average 1% yearly. Stale environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe people that work there are not the stupid dopes you make them out to be. Talk to the Talk to the workers when you need answers instead of depending on the sole opinion of another manager. The people that work there are not as stupid as you make them out to be.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you're a brown nose you might fit

    Worker (Former Employee) Oakland, NJ

    Pros35 hour work week and you go home on time because the managers are so afraid you might do something to make them look bad.

    ConsA LOT of "cliques", health insurance is expensive, most managers have HS diploma or community college education only, advancement is non existant, if "they" don't like you find another job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNow that ops is moving to Ohio it is starting to show how little you do and KNOW - ha ha I hope you are all fired for the horrible way you treat people. Your MVW statement is a joke!

    Excellent learning experience in the cosmetic skincare manufacturing industry.

    Buyer (Former Employee) East Windsor, NJ

    ProsDress down Fridays were the highlight of the work week. You get 1,000 dollars’ worth of free makeup. Great healthcare benefits.

    ConsThere is a glass ceiling, about 90% of top tier positions are held by men. Very political and cliquey. Huge sticklers for coming into work early.

    Advice to Senior Management9 30AM is not late, you are a global company... telecommuting is a way of the future, consider getting on board.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
