    Pros

    Beauty Leader with top prestige and mainstream brands, experiencing growth with buyouts and mergers, three divisions of distribution, Beauty Salons and Spas, Mass Market and Prestige retailers. Worldwide offices and distribution.

    Cons

    Due to the growth they have been experiencing, there has been major shake ups all levels of management and unfortunately, has caused gaps in distribution, communication, support and is not meeting required profitability. Major cutbacks on budgeting and a lot of miscommunications within departments and with so many new, less seasoned employees; its causing suffering major losses of market share.

    Advice to Management

    New is not always better; too many changes at a time is what's causing the losses and people unhappy and leaving.

    My peers are great collaborators. The local sales and marketing teams are very strong. Speed of thoughts into action is high. Leaders of local market are caring and drive a high sense of urgency in the market.

    Cons

    Inability to prioritize effectively.

    Instability in top senior leaders. Frequent leadership changes.

    Often time the most senior leaders are disrespectful to employees

    You are only replicating what you have done somewhere else, you are not seizing the opportunity to do something new, something that's never been done before in beauty. It's a shame as this deal once had so much potential.
