    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at DECIEM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I met some nice people that I still stay in touch with - they left the company as well not being able to deal with Brandon Truaxe.

    Cons

    The owner, Brandon Truaxe is the most egotistical, rude, arrogant, narcissistic person I have ever worked with in my career of many years. He thinks he understands business and he does not. He may create good products, but as far as running a business it's like a child playing store. He was totally out of control and has no respect for others - it's all about him. Absolutely the worst experience of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Respect people who put their time and dedication into the work they do. Stop the abuse and nasty comments you make about your staff.

    I worked at DECIEM full-time

    Pros

    Company with potential if management is changed.

    Cons

    Every negative comment on here is true and I experienced it for myself. I find it ironic how it's a beauty company and its' management is completely sexist and demeaning towards women. Please take the time to look at all the reviews... I find it funny how they tried to salvage the ratings by posting fake reviews back to back. Anyone with common sense can see that.

    I have been working at DECIEM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very successful, vibrant, rapidly growing company with such a dedicated, fun team of committed people. Huge opportunity for growth if you are competent and seek out opportunities. Every day presents new challenges, but that's not a bad thing when you love the company and people you work with. Very intelligent, caring CEO & founder.

    Cons

    The downsides depend on the type of person you are. If you want intensive training, constant guidance, corporate structure, and predictability - DECIEM probably isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Implementing some structure, while keeping the fluidity of departments would be beneficial.

    I worked at DECIEM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff, the leadership, the passion, the creativity.

    I had the honour and pleasure of working directly with BT for 2 almost three years, and I can truly say that he is the kindest and most compassionate boss I have ever had.

    Cons

    Not located in Montreal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and stay true to your passion and vision.

    Pros

    - Extremely bright and friendly co-workers who encourage you to grow.
    - One of the brightest and passionate CEO's I've ever worked for. Everything that comes out of his mouth is genuine, if he hates your work he'll tell you straight up, if he loves it, he will email you with a thousand hearts about how incredible it is.
    - Christmas and Halloween parties are actually fun because people genuinely love working with each other.
    - Getting your work done is up to you. If you don't deliver, you will hear about it. There is no manager walking around checking up on you.

    Cons

    - Need a better system for employees to make complaints that end in results.

    Advice to Management

    - Calling employees family is great in nature but when you have to put business first and let go of certain people, the negative impact is much more harmful.

    I have been working at DECIEM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Waking up each day I never feel that I am heading to 'work'. I genuinely look forward to seeing my colleagues, which I would also consider friends. The whole team has such a passion for the brand and this is clear to see in the happy internal emails that bounce around the office. Everyone celebrates the successes and also supports each other through the inevitable struggles of a fast-growing business. The Founder, Brandon is extremely inspirational and has taught me so much whilst allowing me the freedom to evolve in my role. I have always felt supported and respected at DECIEM and the open nature of the company means that I'm never afraid to admit fault or ask for guidance. Even during the most challenging of times, I have never felt 'stressed' because I know that we will all be working to fix things together. DECIEM is the most exciting yet peaceful place that I have ever worked and I feel truly blessed and proud to be part of the team.

    Cons

    The company has grown exponentially recently and this has caused some struggles with stock levels. The pressure from this can be felt across all areas of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time during the hiring process to ensure that we only welcome people who truly love our brand - not employees who leave us after a few weeks and then write negative reviews with no substance on Glassdoor.

    I have been working at DECIEM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have only experienced care and support working at DECIEM. HR and management were extremely understanding when I needed to take time out due to ill health to attend weekly doctors appointments last year. I have never worked in a company before where I have felt comfortable enough to discuss mental health issues, but I feel supported and at home here.

    I look forward to going to work every day. The teams in London (in-store and head office) and Canada are made up of talented, hard-working and determined individuals who I love working with. Every day there is a new challenge and I enjoy being kept on my toes.

    Cons

    The exponential rate of growth of the company means that there is definitely some room to improve infrastructure.

    Product launches are sporadic and sometimes without warning.

    Stock issues can sometimes impact on ability to excel at my work.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to be able to take on more responsibility so that management have more time to focus on the bigger picture and grow infrastructure.
