    I worked at Silpada Designs part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to schedule when you work and how much you work. It's all up to you! The incentives - free jewelry and expense paid trips are awesome. The friendships with other reps are great!

    Cons

    It's a difficult business model. Sometimes very difficult to keep the "parties" going. The quality of the jewelry has gone down quite a bit in recent years. Not nearly as much sterling. The pricing has gone up.

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential, provides great training and support staff, generous pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Since you set your own hours, it's important to never stop working on finding new business. It's hard to take time off and relax. Replacing your inventory can be expensive when items are retired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I admire the decisions to take care of the company's future and buying back the company from Avon.

    Pros

    The travel benefits are amazing. The jewelry is amazing! The office is lovely.

    Cons

    Management within the marketing department is a friend to friend relationship. If you are out if the circle you are out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be inclusive.

    Pros

    Growth opportunity, fabulous support system, great training, and lots of promotions based on personal sales and recruiting activity.

    Cons

    There are really no cons, but if you don't expend the effort, there will be little benefit.

    Pros

    Great compensation plan & unparalleled support! So many bonuses and so much opportunity to own free jewelry- and the jewelry is so high quality and stylish it is absolutely unparalleled. There is no other company (sterling silver only) that has the style of Silpada Designs. Love it!

    Cons

    The fee yearly to continue to be a representative is about the only con I can think of! But I am sure that is pretty standard in these types of industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! Silpada's upper management is ALWAYS in our corner, I believe that and I feel that!

    Pros

    The best jewelry, the best hostess rewards, the best compensation

    Cons

    No cons, unless you're not willing to put fourth a little effort. You're paid what you're worth, so you have to earn it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nice job with the recent changes! Very exciting!
