    I worked at PZ Cussons Beauty as an intern

    Pros

    Small work environment with very friendly people. It was a hands-on experience because of how small the NYC company is.

    Cons

    I can honestly say there were no cons about this position. The amount of learning and experience I gained was so beneficial.

    I worked at PZ Cussons Beauty full-time

    Pros

    Not sure. Will probably help if you're same religion as they are.

    Cons

    Family business. Over involvement in every aspect. Will tell you one thing but then when done ask why you did it. Not very professional.

    Advice to Management

    Keep family business separate and behind closed doors where it belongs

    I worked at PZ Cussons Beauty as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Switched on and engaged company. Employee's were friendly, focused and hard working.
    Opportunity to implement new ways of doing things and add value.
    Warm environment and lots of socials that fostered a friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Focus on profit margins were a little short sighted, interesting products with possible potential were cut early on due to not reaching high margins targets..
    Bureaucratic and long template filling exercises that felt procedural rather than value add.

    Advice to Management

    Hierarchical organisation structure meant very little differentiation from managers and their direct lines key responsibilities, so an ongoing tug of war for work especially the interesting projects. Worth reviewing org chart.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    The office is in Covent Garden.

    Cons

    A very unprofessional environment, a HR nightmare. The CEO is a sociopath with no understanding of how to run a business. Senior management hate one another and the hate and bad behaviour breeds throughout the organisation

    Advice to Management

    First go on a people management course. Second go on a business management course. Third, get a new CEO
