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

Pros

-Loved my coworkers
-Great employee benefits (product discount, spa treatments, etc)
-Free building parking

Cons

-Pay was ridiculously low
-Lots of office politics amongst the management
-Complained to HR about issues and nothing was ever done

Advice to Management

Pay your employees better. I loved my job and my coworkers but I left because I was offer $15k more for the same exact job somewhere else. Also HR needs to take complaints more seriously. I complained about comments made to me by a manager and nobody ever spoke to her or did anything about it.

    Pros

    Dr. Murad's vision and inspiring leadership is the single best reason to work at Murad.
    Others include friendly and dedicated co-workers for the most part.
    The company has a heart of gold and really cares about employees' physical and emotional wellness

    Cons

    Some grossly incompetent middle managers who fumble around wasting time and money
    Siloed marketing channels that conflict with each other
    Very territorial departments and teams
    Some senior management execs appear to be driven only by ego, not the company's best interest

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your customer FIRST. Don't be distracted by the next 'shiny object' that comes along. Entrust and empower your marketing team to market the business. And leave finance to crunch the numbers. Don't give finance any control over how you market the business. That is a dead-end road to nowhere.
