    Pros

    Classes each month to help you become a better educator and team member.
    Fantastic benefits!
    Encourage continuing education
    Growth opportunities

    Cons

    A pro and a con is that we have many, many requests from the public, of our time and talents for community service projects. We have to limit the projects because we just can not do them all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Dr. Kirk in a leadership position.

    I have been working at Clary Sage College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love my job. I have fun every single day I go to work. I am allowed creative freedom in the way that I teach my class, and the management is always there to help you if need be. They are also very encouraging when it comes to continuing education for instructors. This weekend I get to go to a hair show in NYC, and in two weeks to the stylist choice awards in Chicago! I love working for a company that wants to invest in me and my future.

    Cons

    At times, dealing with 300 women in a building is hard. But that's beauty college!

    Pros

    It's amazing to work at a place where you can make a difference every day! I love having the opportunity to help students change their lives through education. All employees are given a holiday for their birthday, and lots of paid days off in addition to vacation time! Overall a great benefits package! The company lives by the CARES culture, and it is something all employees subscribe to. I feel like the company truly cares for my well being, and I have learned first hand here that hard work will pay off!!

    Cons

    The only con is that I can't be here all the time, I love this place, it's like a sanctuary!

    Advice to Management

    Great transparency from all levels, keep up the great work!!

    I have been working at Clary Sage College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I absolutely love this place. It's extremely professional, confidential, and very safe. The services are breath taking and the customer service blows through the roof. This isn't a job for me, it's just a normal day at Clary :). We are evolving in a very positive way and our students are transforming into artists. Every time I get a service, no matter which one, I feel confident in the student and the instructor to meet my needs to the best of their ability. I have never been unhappy with a service and have always had a great relationship with all of my co workers. We have an amazing CEO, Teresa Knox. I have never met anyone like her. She is one of the most intelligent and positive woman I've came in contact with. She has a great head on her shoulders and knows how to run a business. I have no doubt she will be the Mayor of Tulsa one day.

    Cons

    I wish we had more appointments available. :)

    Advice to Management

    N/A You all do an amazing job.

    I have been working at Clary Sage College full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay and perks. Neither of which are worth the cons.

    Cons

    Abysmal communication among all levels of employees and management. Unsafe work environment in various departments. Valid input is invited but not welcomed. Drama is not just a weekly staple, but a daily event. One's personal items are constantly at risk with poor security management. Very high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is the best way to grow and evolve as a company. Employee retention and development should mean more than a groveling competition. Focus on quality, rather than quantity of students- This is the only way to survive the incoming competition.
