    I worked at Aveda part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing discount, free stuff, decent pay

    Cons

    Management will throw you under the bus to make themselves look good and don’t do something great because they will take credit for your work. Worst experience I’ve ever had with that was here.

    Advice to Management

    Watch what you say and do

    Pros

    All corporations have flaws but Aveda continues to stand out as a great company to work for. They heavily promote within the company.

    Aveda is located far outside the metro area of Minneapolis which makes for a long commute.

    I worked at Aveda full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and product discount

    Cons

    It used to be a company that cherished its employees and strives to support their growth within the company. No longer they are just another big company looking at cutting costs and paying employees as little as they can.

    Advice to Management

    Stand by your team! Support them and they will do their best to support you!
