    I worked at Beauty Systems Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The vendors you will be working with are all very friendly.

    Cons

    Micromanagement is a common theme among all managers/directors. Morale lacks in this company due to lack of employee recognition events.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to plan fun events for the employees that work very hard for a company. Show appreciation.

    I worked at Beauty Systems Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many free products to sample, great customers and teammates, many product offerings, flex schedule. Good health benefits. Fun job for someone right out of college, doesn't mind a low salary and not a stressful
    Job.

    Cons

    Franchise division of upper management is disconnected with sales reps . What we did 15 years ago doesn't always work in 2017. No consistent valuable training and valuable professional development opportunities in place. No opportunities for growth within divison and low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be so reactive and have a plan b in place when sales are not met. Do not go into panic mode and have a long term strategy. I Did one review of company in 10 years. Have them more often and it may improve co and obstacles the co faces before they happen. Do 360 reviews every year. U will
    Learn a lot!

    Pros

    Set your own hours, set accounts to call on.

    Cons

    They expect way too much for the 12% compensation you get. Monthly goals are way to high and sometimes unachievable.

    Advice to Management

    Look at each individual territory instead of having the same goals for others in higher volume areas.
