    I worked at Mary Kay

    Pros

    Access to some great technology and great technologists. The premise of the organization is great, providing opportunities to enrich women's lives. The pay and benefits are highly competitive (although things are getting tighter) and offices are beautiful.

    Cons

    Congruency of projects and efforts are frequently illconceived and misdirected. The organization is heavy on overhead types, weighing down on individual contributors. I discovered I was burned by an "open door" discussion with a senior level leader, after a direct report to the manager being discussed shared points from the discussion (literally) 30 minutes later. There have been significant reductions in... staff the past few years through attrition and buyouts.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the most brilliant talent to walk through ANY organization has moved into and out of Mary Kay because your senior and middle managers. Your e-commerce department is a cult-of-personality. At least it seems like Supply Chain was required to prove ROI.
