    I have been working at Barbizon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule
    No Early Mornings
    If you do your job well you get BONUS $$$
    My Co-Workers Are Like FAMILY To Me
    All The FREE coffee you can drink lol!

    Cons

    As with any sales job you have to perform and keep your numbers up. Management does reviews with you telling you your strong and weak points. If you continue to perform poorly you will be put to part time or let go....Isn't that how all jobs work?!

    Advice to Management

    I think work from home privileges should be sooner than 18 months....If the employee is performing well reward them :) You can always bring them back after a month if their numbers dip.

    Pros

    I have had the privilege of working in many departments in my time at Barbizon and have been able to share creatively and make positive impacts both in the office and the field. I love the opportunity to work with the kids on the weekends and be a positive role model for the youth.

    Cons

    Working in a mostly female environment can have its challenges with lots of strong personalities but its never a dull day.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more feedback from the field to be heard to make positive change more efficiently.
