    Pros

    From Lancome... Wonderful products , Beautiful history , gratis twice a year , top notch training. Macy's Health coverage & PTO

    Cons

    Lancome Way too many events back to back always all the time, Unachievable go consistently, not enough support to support these events and a follow through, Extreme physical labor that goes with these events .Macy's not enough support over all, Extreme physical labor,no support to support these events too many events, out rages goals, Extreme pressure to open up Macy's cards, they expect you to be successful such as my client and the system doesn't even work but you are still held accountable for that goal and are reprimanded if it not achieved.

    Advice to Management

    If you want these goals to happen it would be nice to get the support that is needed. It would be nice if you even asked how can I help you ? Without us your magic does not happen!
