    I worked at Mary Kay full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Mary Kay does have a good culture and a strong foundation. Their benefits are the best including profit sharing and bonuses tied to performance.

    Cons

    Not all departments get the culture right. The speak the speak but don't walk the walk.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure you listen and do something tangible about the employee engagement surveys. So many times I have seen the survey score super low in one area and a plan to fix it is never discussed or completed.
