Pros

The brand itself and the quality of the goods it produces outshine it's competitors.

Cons

Directors and senior management are ineffective leaders and tend to micro-manage. The VP has made poor business decision that have cost many of the company's employees their jobs.

Advice to Management

I would advise them to support their teams. A great manager gives good feedback and constructive criticism as well as giving praise where due in an effort to make their teams look good. If a manager highlights his/her team it only serves to make the manager shine as a leader, not deter from his/her own ability.

    I worked at Iredale Mineral Cosmetics full-time

    Pros

    Guaranteed base salary and monthly bonus on growth above last year. Largely female population of employees that allows flexible scheduling to meet individual and company goals. Your schedule is primarily your own to make however this is a position that requires 50-60 hours a week minimum. Great pay if you're willing to work for it! In my territory, approximately 50% travel. Excellent products, recognized brand, fun to work with accounts you chose and who love he brand as well. A small company that is forward thinking, health conscious and on the pulse of today's evolved working woman.

    Cons

    As with any employer, sales success is directly impacted by resources available so if your RD isn't a great one, your goals become tougher (not impossible) to achieve. Focus/target market changes often. Frequent manufacturing issues on some products but eventually they get corrected. This was four years ago.

    I have been working at Iredale Mineral Cosmetics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best boss and also the best company for inside the corporate office ! Knowing that Jane iredale is the gold standard brand and it sells it self, it's truly an honor to work for such amazing people.

    Cons

    That sometimes when new products launch and they are in high demand, back orders might occur. Also that we in field sales can not be more involved with launches and what we think might work.

    Advice to Management

    I love the support everyone gives in both upper management and in corporate to the field sales. Everyone is professional and respectful.
