    Insurance & 401k could be better
    Some have been with BB a long time & are constantly comparing to what it "used to be".

    Pros

    Great team culture with everyone across departments supporting each other to accomplish goals. Everyone is open to feedback which creates a more collaborative environment. A lot of management and corporate employees started out as retail associates or in the salon, so there is a lot of opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    A lot of newness. Not really a con, but some people are resistant to change.

    Pros

    Great place for a service provider to get comfortable and grow their business. Getting to work with people and bring joy to customers. Opportunity for advancement. I started part time in retail, advanced into management and then joined the corporate office team

    When you focus on your associates and ensuring they are happy and supported it translates into how they treat the clients and the culture that is created

    Pros

    playing with products
    Large Backbar
    20 percent product discount

    Minimum wage for seasoned stylist ! They promise commission, but it is extremely difficult to do enough volume to commission.

    Advice to Management

    Be a licensed cos, listen to your employees, treat them kindly.
    CLEAN your filthy store. Stop berating people . Stop publicly shaming your workers. Get of your snapchat and facebook and do some actual work. Value your workers and have less turnover in stylists!!!
