    I have been working at Oriflame full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair pay, fun colleagues, central location

    Cons

    The micromanaging that I encountered was extremely suffocating. New structure and a new boss (again) means that I have had no control over my workload, my new boss cannot leave me alone for a second to do my work and I have been in so many pointless meetings I have lost track of what my job is and what I am doing. This company culture has pushed me close to burnout. Last week I quit as I just couldn't take it anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop micromanaging people and trust us to do our job.

    Pros

    People, culture and the challenges. Very interesting industry. Tons of beautiful people, both women and men. Cosmetics is very exciting! Everyone has opinions and everyone use cosmetics in one way or the other.

    Cons

    Can vary greatly between teams and manager. The company can be better at decisions. Loose opinions gets perhaps a bit too much influence sometimes. Everybody has a say in things.

    I have been working at Oriflame (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get instant commissions for selling off the catalogue prices

    Cons

    Its purely your hard work that pays , no benefits at all! Commission based which i think you will sweat it out every month.

    Advice to Management

    Get to motivate your DSRs by offering some sort of package or even lunch! It is hard to sell in an empty stomach besides competition for beauty products has become real in this error of online selling
