    I worked at John Paul Mitchell (More than a year)

    Pros

    At the heart of JPMS is its creative department—a group comprised of extremely talented art directors, designers and production artists. They are some of the hardest working people in the organization. These are the folks doing the work, making the day-to-day creative decisions. They are the company’s backbone. They come in early. They work late. They give up their personal time in order to make the company profitable. To work with this dedicated crew and be part of the collaborative, supportive and trustworthy atmosphere they created, is an invaluable experience.

    Cons

    As a result of ineffectual leadership, the creative department is a dysfunctional, and often, hostile environment to navigate. Leadership lacks key communication and problem solving skills, compassion and awareness. Creative direction is lacking. Creative strategy is nonexistent. Major departmental changes occur often and create disruption. Decisions are made impulsively and without inclusion of affected team members. Top-level positions in the department are filled by inexperienced managers hired from outside the company, while long-time employees receive little, or no, opportunity for career advancement. Morale is low. Stress is high. Fear runs rampant. For a brand whose mantra is “peace, love and happiness,” many in this department are very unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    David Ogilvy said, “If you hire giants, you will build a company of giants.” What this creative department needs is a leadership giant: someone who knows how to bring people together, someone who works with others rather than in isolation, someone who leads by example not intimidation. This group needs a leader who knows that the most valuable resources are human resources. Nurture and grow the loyal, hardworking creative community sitting right under your nose. Provide them with growth opportunities. Listen when they ask for guidance or have grievances. Respect empowers. And most of all, try honesty. It really is the best policy.
