    I have been working at Anastasia Beverly Hills full-time

    Pros

    Exciting time to join this fast-growing company - get the ability to experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, working with the founder of the brand and seeing the company grow and professionalize. Great brand story, solid growth but with a ton of white space opportunity. If you're willing to work hard and own your role, anything is possible here / you'll have the opportunity to do things you wouldn't be able to at other more bureaucratic companies.

    Cons

    Culture is not for everyone. Need to be ready to work and be 100% accountable for your work. Still a very lean team, so workloads can be heavy. Very fast-paced with lots of changes and lots of new people, so some growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire people who really want to be here and work hard.

    Pros

    Exciting environment and the growth is happening at a fast rate. Product quality is extremely good and i'm not just saying that because I work for them and my discount is amazing.

    Cons

    Fast growth is sometimes a challenge but with the right leadership it should make it a smooth transition.

    I have been working at Anastasia Beverly Hills full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoy the company culture and it's inclusiveness. I've seen so many changes for the good since I started over a year ago. We have a new HR team who does tons of fun stuff for the employees and you can really tell they care. There are so many new faces, which is great because the work life balance has gotten so much better with all the added support. I love working here the most because unlike other big companies, your voice is heard. If you have a great idea or suggestion, the CEO is the first to say well let's hear it. The products are amazing and we are always getting dibs on new items that launch.

    Cons

    It's not perfect but it's 10x's better than when I started.

    Advice to Management

    Continue adding Senior Management - it's making a world of difference having strong leaders in place.

    Pros

    The people that work at the company are really really awesome! So kind and so welcoming, so passionate about their work! Making you feel just like you belong. The other bad reviews are not at all accurate about the creative team. The creative team is simply like one great family and I had an honor to work with them and would not think twice to do it again!

    Cons

    Did not work there enough to find any cons, because they were none.

    Pros

    Free Make Up
    Office Space is beautiful

    Cons

    The reviews here are so completely honest and to the heart of the issue. Its a family run business and the family members are highly critical of each employee, unless you are a member of the clique they hang with. In order to be a member of that clique, you have to enjoy gossiping about other employees, and listening to lies and develop plots against them. The President has a list of people who annoy her, and are on her hit list. I think HR wrote the review indicating everything is getting better because its her job to side with them and organize a monthly birthday celebration ( which is supposed to be a break through phenomenon that everyone should be so thankful for) Expect a phony HR smile at a phony HR meeting to check in on you and see how you are doing. She will deliver messages that they are afraid to say to you, and then gossip with management about you. Nothing is getting better, and the employees can see this is a facade. Clomp, clomp, clomp, I think I hear the delicate footsteps of HR coming to your desk to "see how you are doing" - be very afraid!

    Pros

    Free products. Thats all that is good with this company.

    Cons

    Management is extremely poisonous is this place. They treat you like complete and utter dirt... you can't ask any questions to do with any work as this is frowned upon and you should "know what you're doing"... Although the real reason is the lazy customer service managers want no responsibility to deal with other than sitting at their desk watching youtube videos all day. This company is still "new" in a sense, and you can definitely tell when you start working. No structure, no real management, no leadership and no teamwork... just a bunch of rude people who feel they are privileged and want to think they're important. Horrible horrible company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Please go back to training on how to become an efficient manager, you wouldn't last a single day in a real company that cares for it's employees.

    Pros

    Free Product! Oh Joy!

    Cons

    Wow, where to begin:
    Highly erratic and childish "President", who makes crutial decisions based on astrological charts, and takes a vacation every month to Costa Rica.
    Rehiring fired employees (sometimes they are fired for a logical reason, most of the time they are not).
    Very little time off granted, (and you will need it, because working in this place is like working in a sweatshop).
    Constantly reshuffling employees positions and desks around the office.
    Zero workflow consistency
    Everyone looks and acts miserable, and toxic gossip abounds.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent, don't make judgements based solely in the moment based on your emotions. Be a good example to your employees, you don't need to take a vacation every month, it sets a terrible example and is poor for morale.

    Continue to add structure to a brand that heavily needed it.
