      CLARINS USA-Nightmare

      Pros

      Benefits are satisfactory, TOA's are very easily accessible. The company has junior management, it's very easy to get promoted for people who make friends with the SVP.

      Cons

      Terrible work life balance, extremely hostile work environment. If you seek HR's assistance you might as well resign, HR does not act as the middle man. Instead they tell whoever your grievance with about the issue and allow the employee to be targeted. It's very clear whoever the SVP put into place when he was in vp role gets preferential treatment, (I.e. Smaller territories, more resources, and much more support). The companies leadership does not know how to grow the business, the numbers continue to drop, and all they do is continue to cut budgets to show profit. The company has gone from a beautiful brand and a great place to work to a nightmare.

      Pros

      Great products, quality skin care, most of the counter staff and counter managers are great people to work with.

      Cons

      The level of organization dysfunction and negative culture is astounding. I believe it is a dysfunction from the top down. Management sends mixed messages, condescending communication and openly insulting people in public is a norm. The rules would change weekly and questions are not welcome. The sales approach is very prescribed, everyone is expected to use the memorized script. I was reprimanded for giving customers too much information and not to include any of the scientific information just focus on how it feels on your skin. They seem to assume their customers aren't savvy or educated where I tend to believe the opposite.
