    Pros

    Really flexible with schedule. Great set of coworkers.

    Cons

    Management issues. It'a all about who you know, not what you know. There is a lot of politics when it comes to management. Supervisors/Managers don't know how to talk to their employees. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Consider restructuring people in management. If a person doesn't have the experience, don't allow that person to have so much responsibility!

    I worked at Markwins International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, management cares about employees, good life/work balance. I was always very busy and knew exactly what my job was and what needed to be done. I felt I had opportunities to voice my opinions and they were heard by the upper management.

    Cons

    Company has stayed the same size so not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Better employee benefits would go a long way.

    Pros

    - Benefits are ok
    - Get paid on time
    - Interesting industry to work in

    Cons

    - No career advancement. Upper management are all family members and treat employees with no respect.
    - No product innovation. This company proud themselves as the fastest follower. They copy products from other brand names and rush them to the markets.
    - Low pay and long hours.Little people are heavily overworked and turnover rate is high. People constantly changing leads to inefficiency and lots of mistake.
    - One person HR. It's difficult to get help as the hr lady is always too busy.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more. Stop bragging about the brand values when you can't even take care of your employees.

    I worked at Markwins International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working in the Beauty Industry
    The Creative Team is awesome, and that is IT!

    Cons

    The Senior management doesn't get it. They don't invest in the employees, the products, nor the building. The enviornment is very depressing, and demotivating.
    There is no ethnic diversity here
    All this company cares about is making money, there is no emphasis on creativity, innovation, very poor product development.
    Poor Leadership
    Very cut throat
    The Marketing team is very junior level
    The Marketing Directors are very dated , stuck in the early 90's, don't embrace innovation, creativity, and are very cut throat and defensive
    Horrible Human Resources department ( 1 person)
    Horrible Benefits
    Horrible Salaries
    You have to clock in and out when you are a salaried employee
    This company is a down-grade to someone looking to take their career to the next level
    NO resources, can't travel to tradeshows or seminars

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the marketing directors and replace with experienced more innovative people that care about the products they launch and not just making numbers.
    Hire a real product development team, instead of rushing products that are horrible quality out of the Chinese factory that have dated formulations
