    I worked at Bumble and bumble. Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salon services allowance, Estee Lauder discount, great benefits package, summer Fridays, decent vacation time for assistant manager level and above

    Cons

    For the first several months, I loved the benefits of working for a multi-billion dollar corporation. Having previously worked in only small companies, I was quick to drink the corporate Kool-Aid. But the glamour began the fade as I realized the company was losing market share, relevance, and was run by a gang of self-obsessed corporate overlords. During my year and a half there, I saw dozens of talented and driven younger employees leave, driven out by poor management and a dying internal creative culture. I was either micromanaged for brief periods of time or left entirely to my own devices for longer stretches by a self-serving, often MIA, thankless manager. I am a proactive self-starter who went above and beyond and was told that I had overstepped the boundaries of my position multiple times. This is a company where managers want all of the glory for themselves and care not for fostering the careers of their employees. It has been less than surprising to me then that since I left last year, dozens more employees from both the corporate office and the salon have left and employees still there tell me that morale is lower than ever. The most shocking thing about my time at Bumble and bumble was the wealth of vibrant, young, creative energy that was untapped and even stifled by small-minded upper managers with poor taste. When I arrived, the creative energy was palpable - and this was something the company was known for. When I left, the creative souls who still remained were disillusioned and dejected, desperate for a way out. As such, it's no surprise many of them have left over the last few months. Even the brilliant and feisty non-creatives in departments such as marketing have also departed. Only the corporate overlords and their depressed prisoners remain.

    Advice to Management

    To Peter: look around you, search your heart, and ask whether your Bb.LT are truly the leaders their lofty titles indicate they are.
