    Pros

    Free makeup discounts through department store

    Cons

    management is untrained and employ fear tactics to attempt to recieve results unorganized and blame always shifted down the ladder company will throw own employees under the bus to open more counters

    Advice to Management

    Build your employees up with coaching and one on ones rather than barking orders and keeping yourself busy with other things so their failure can't be blamed on you

    Pros

    Working with a team of people who are very passionate about what they do, and having the opportunity to travel, plan events, and make women look and feel more beautiful.

    Cons

    It is not a personal con, but there is a lot of driving involved. I have an area of 23 stores and I have to visit them regularly.

    Pros

    Such an incredible brand to work for. Even though UD is expanding rapidly, it still feels like a close-knit family of people. And L'Oreal really cares about their employees.

    Cons

    You get what you put into it, as with any job, but with sales it is of course very competitive. There is a certain amount of pressure to make goals, but again, that's with any worthwhile sales job! And the rewards are great.

    Pros

    Good employees discount, no dress code

    Cons

    There is racism,discrimination and favoritism from the Executive and the Field sales director that handle the Macy's . They are very unprofessional and they use you and then stab you in the back and talk bad about their employees which creates hostile environments. It is not the company with issues it's those two certain individuals that are unprofessional because the other management that run the Urban decay Ulta's and Sephora's are not like that at all they are amazing

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully HR gets rid of those unprofessionals to help avoid all this turn over at those counters that have the potential to be great and run a successful counters instead of making them hate their job

    Pros

    This a very creative, collaborative space in most all departments that are the beauty touch points. Now owned by Loreal, there may be more traditional team structures in departments like finance etc but because the brand is in such a growth spike, it's a great career opportunity. And all the people are fun!

    Cons

    So many of the growing pains have been turned around since being owned by Loreal now.

    Pros

    great environment/teamwork . products with high quality sell on time. success all the way. great management

    Cons

    schedule change every day . we must be extremely flexible. lack of communication regarding schedule work.

    Advice to Management

    try to have at least 1-2 shift . one shift is too crowded and be specific when it comes to work schedule
