    Pros

    Great people, who unfortunately don't stay long. Offbeat culture. Pretty good communication across levels.

    Cons

    Impossible to hold onto people, layoffs, tons of instability, unclear and inconsistent strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Is anyone looking to acquire you?

    Pros

    Terrific culture, a very respectful environment with a lot of independence.

    Cons

    As a company that started as a "mom-and-pop" enterprise there have been and continue to be a lot of growing pains as we transform ourself into a true global organization.

    Communication with the production facility in Australia is challenging due to the time difference.

    There has been a lot of turnover as the compny has been evolving. This is a tremendous challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Once decisions have been made, stick to them and trust in your employees' ability to implement those decisions.

    The problems with recruitment and retention must be addressed squarely and with complete transparency.

    Pros

    Perks are nice.
    Plenty of vacation time offered.
    You get to work with Aussies!

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times due to the nature of the sales cycles and conflicting personalities, as well as timezone differences which "could" contribute to the cons of working here.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. The company has a lot of potential to develop and launch great natural products in the cosmetic arena.

    Cons

    The company is very unstable. They have had 4 CEO's in the past 8 years, each CEO with his own vision for the company. Strategies change bi-yearly so changes are never fully implemented. This hinders growth.

    Advice to Management

    Determine the best strategy and actually implement it. If you're going to focus on the brand, then actually do it!

    Pros

    Heritage and products truly are incredible.

    Cons

    Senior management lack the energy, time and passion to drive a great brand to where it needs to be. Talented members of staff are driven out of the business due to lack of opportunities and 'secretive' non-inclusive leadership styles.

    Advice to Management

    Nurture the talent you have within your teams rather than throwing money at external agencies.

    it's better to provide more internal opportunities.

    Pros

    Great product. Good culture. Discounts and free products. Friendly co workers. Good incentives. Good training system. Nice managers for the most part.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth within company. Don't seem to rate current employees for promotions but head hunt. No enough males working in company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within your own. Especially to loyal staff who are brand ambassadors.

    Pros

    Product discount, free product

    Cons

    Lack of communication abilities from senior management to store managers: silent treatment is very common, most managers incapable of giving constructive criticism, some managers choosing to take off staff from rosters when needing to resolve difficult staff issues. Company hires a lot of mandarin/cantonese speaking sttaff, and tries to keep them under old-fashioned leadership. Lots of cultural stereotypes, LGBT-unfriendly. Heavily relying on Chinese tourists, many stores run like duty free shops.

    Advice to Management

    Undercover boss might be a good idea than mystery shoppers.
