    Pros

    Certain people who work there are awesome. Great artists/artistry. It's sad bc we are in danger of losing that now that Bobbi Brown the person has departed the brand.

    Cons

    There is a lot of chaos and a lot of lazy people and no rules. No system of checks and balances. It's a crazy work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Put some structure in place and make it fair. Certain teams are favored and have no repercussion for bad and/or lazy behavior.
