    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Origins part-time

    Pros

    Got to expand my knowledge as a professional and learn more about skin care.

    Cons

    The management did anything but manage. They always had something flippant to say but they never actually tried to solve any of the problems we had in store. They ignored them because it was easier.

    Advice to Management

    Take action on the people who are not doing their job entirely and give more praise to those who do.

    I worked at Origins full-time

    Pros

    Nice products Opportunities for advancement Respectful coworkers, for the most part A lovely, relaxed atmosphere for the most part Nice bosses

    Cons

    Typical sales stuff; competition and aggression sometimes Bonuses rarely materialized, especially in stores in cities where it's hard to sell. It seems like the sales goals are unrealistic, considering you do commission level work, like collecting and maintaining clients. A lot of carrot dangling.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest!

Origins has excellent education initiatives for guides, leaders and future leaders. The product is fun, innovative and a pleasure to sell. Corporate policies are made clear and always made to benefit the security...

    Cons

    Origins corporate and senior management can be out of touch and very disorganized. Often, requests for operation and suggestions to benefit productivity are either looked over or ignored entirely. Senior Management only understand and follow what numbers and reports state. In some cases expectations are given to the brick and mortar with promises of support (either with promotions, events, educational tools, etc.) with...
