    I worked at Puig Beauty & Fashion full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A strong portfolio of brands with exciting projects in the pipeline as well as recently launched. A very friendly working environment with approachable peers and colleagues. Strong work/life balance.

    Cons

    A culture where who you know is more important than what you know. Politics is overwhelming, more than the average corporation - mainly due to an archaic HR function, which holds a large amount of power over the rest of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    REALLY listen to your people - and TAKE action accordingly. Revisit the role of the HR function and revamp the department from the top down.

    I worked at Puig Beauty & Fashion full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A Barcelona based company that may surprise you with the big range of internationally known brands such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, Prada and Carolina Herrera. When entering the building you feel an aura of fashion and glamour, that accompanies you throughout the day. The in house restaurant is great and employees get very good discounts on the companies products.

    Cons

    The company is currently trying to move away from the Spanish company culture and that should be a good thing. Unfortunately nobody seems to have told the managers. Productivity is measured by the hours you spend on your desk and people engage in a rat race to stay the longest. After all there is no other choice since people get laid off easily. This ruins the atmosphere among the colleagues and the huge workload, due to understaffing for cost reduction does the rest. In general there is a lot of motivational talk but an overall depressed mood. From the looks there are more than 60% women in the company but management is 90% male. Racial diversity is non existent. All in all it is a company culture of the 1980s-1990s and not fit for the challenges of the 21st century

    Advice to Management

    Diversify your staff and management, develop a company culture fit for this century and try not to cut cost by overloading your people with work

    Pros

    Good vibes, energy, dynamism, passion!

    Cons

    Hard to grow vertically because of the low rotation, which is good news, but does not generate new opportunities

    Pros

    I have been working many years in the company and learned a lot from my boss and colleagues. Had a great team and good conditions.

    Cons

    Only few opportunities to move inside the company, not to say none! Very competitive atmosphere. The company is changing strategy and it's like they do not care about people anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let people get burnt until it's too late! If people really care listen to what they have to say and do not see it as a complaint!
