      Great company but...

      Pros

      The pay is great & negotiable. Pre-Covid you had the opportunity to at least travel twice in a year to attend seasonal seminars or artist events

      Cons

      Fight for your value & worth. Numbers are everything in order to move up. Products are as exciting or trending anymore so it’s hard to get excited about new launches.
