Pros

Open space and people open to new ideas

Cons

Chaotic management.
Unprofessional work environment.
Staff is hired and fired on whim!
No work-life flexibility
Lots and LOTS of politics that makes people think of leaving the minute they start work. Every 2 months I saw 5-6 leaving and 2-3 hired. Including the VPs and Managers! Bad sign!

Advice to Management

Stop the Chaos, else you going down faster than lightening no matter how loudly the founder screams to show she is positive and nothing is wrong. We all know the company is sinking!

    I worked at Stella & Dot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Customer service for Stylists is great, generally speaking.

    Cons

    You need to have wealthy friends - or friends that have wealthy friends - because S&D stuff is expensive. You have to be ok with your Up-line being pushy - toward you! They make money when you do, so they push you to sell, sell, sell. It's not really "be your own boss". You have to be "pushy" to sell. Also they taut that you make 50% profit as a Stylist but in actuality, you make about 16% net, after you deduct all the "real" expenses. I found it wasn't really worth it. My samples & my clients' samples broke numerous times and considering the price point of the brand, the quality of crafstmanship should be way above-board. I quit as a Stylist for all of these reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful about how much % profit/salary a Stylist makes as you recruit.
