Pros

This is a lively, fast paced and very fun company to work for. There’s a great mix of culture, a young energetic atmosphere and many employees that come from various backgrounds and experience. This is a small business that consists of about 70 employees, you will definitely get the family oriented feel. It’s a very relaxed and casual environment that operates as one team. Constantly working cross-functionally with the different departments helps you to learn so much and that’s definitely a perk for me. Anything that has to do with building knowledge should be a perk for everyone. The President/CEO of the company is an amazing woman that you can learn so much from. She truly cares about the company and the employees at XL.

Besides having full benefits, there are unlimited snacks, beverages and coffee, quarterly bonuses which never amounts to zero, at least 2 fun company outings a year and at least one weekly catered lunch. The management team is flexible and understanding if you have to take time off or need to adjust your hours. When I was in college, they even worked with my schedule which was wonderful at the time. They care about your well-being and advancement in your career whether it’s in the industry or not.

Cons

As a growing organization, XL is constantly working on ways to improve the opportunities and improve as a business overall. Upper management does strive to keep the moral up and truly cares about the team, even if it doesn’t show at times.
There’s a lot of positions that get shifted around within the organization which sometimes can cause confusion as to whose doing what. Also, the current building we’re in is pretty small and the cars are parked in like sardines! The presentation and introduction that hits you when you arrive, doesn’t match our high-end brand. However, the upper management is working on the relocation very fiercely and XL should have its new home designed to match the brand in early 2016.

Advice to Management

The team at XL works really hard and takes a lot of pride in their work and at times it feels unrecognized. Some of the team will even work on multiple tasks outside of their department in various areas.
Timing is something to work on. I feel that some of the set weekly meetings should be re-evaluated. There are some pockets of poor leadership but it's definitely getting better. Other than that, fantastic company to work for.

    Pros

    we finally have 401 k benefits, salary staff get a free paid day of they clock in their hours, good product discount sometimes you get to be a model for the lash extensions

    Cons

    I was not taught to keep my thoughts to myself if I had nothing good to say. This office takes advantage of its staff ruthlessly and coldly. If you like working with people who constantly complain and bad mouth the management and family owners but are powerless to instill change, then by all means come join the fun! I was told by an employee that this was not a professional place, and boy was that person right. People who claim to be experts in their field and strike a cord with the family members as being someone they can take advantage of are hired as well as people who have absolute no experience at all. I find that the morale is very low, the survival mentality is " fake it till you make it" so you will be around people who do not believe or care about what they are doing for the growth of the company. There are a lot of personal tests, traps, condescending outbursts, intentional fibbing, unclear agendas, and never an end in sight. Its tough to be here because the environment is ugly and negative. There is no training, the Good employees were all run off or belittled and everyone is always confused. they say one thing but really do another.
