    I worked at Xtreme Lashes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free snacks, and sorry, I can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    Several members of C-suite are not qualified for their positions -- many were appointed because they are family. Top leadership micromanages every aspect of the business (meeting after meeting after meeting, smartsheet after smartsheet after smartsheet). There is no work/life balance -- staff is expected to work late nights and weekends to make up for the poor management of time among leadership.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs to understand the value of a work/life balance. They will lose skilled talent to other firms that have embraced this tenet. Trust your employees to do good work. It will lead to profits and better talent.

    Cons

    • Small office space and parking lot • Many staff members wear “multiple hats”—the growth of the Company is often times faster than the growth of its workforce!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work, especially the way you show care and concern for your Direct Reports!

    I have been working at Xtreme Lashes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company management truly cares about the success of the company and their employees. Very open door policy. If employees give their best, company rewards them by giving all they can.

    Cons

    They have lengthy meetings, but I believe this is because as with many younger companies the CEO and Management want to ensure everything is going in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and keep caring about your employees.
