    I have been working at Purity Cosmetics full-time

    Pros

    Management places the biggest emphasis on building relationships and improving people's lives with the work we do. Purity was founded with the intent to help others, and it's been pretty clear to me that hasn't changed at all as they've begun to find success. That integrity and dedication to their core values is my favorite aspect of working there.

    Cons

    I don't think there are any.

    Pros

    One of the most enjoyable on-boarding experiences I've ever had.The offices are incredibly nice and simple to get around, training is hands on and everybody is SUPER helpful. So far the work has been really enjoyable too. I look forward to getting to know everyone better.

    Cons

    Nothing to report, nothing significant.

    I have been working at Purity Cosmetics part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ok product. CEO is out of touch with who builds his company.

    Cons

    Management. Disorganized. It’s all about the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    They go through too many employees because they micromanage and are rude and disrespectful.

    Pros

    Purity's structure is organized and easy to understand. Management has been kind and actually cares about my well-being, all the way up to ownership. One of the best jobs I've had.

    Cons

    Hours aren't very flexible, but they're pretty good about giving time off when I ask well in advance.

    I have been working at Purity Cosmetics full-time

    Pros

    The work is enjoyable enough, but my favorite part about Purity is their commitment to their philanthropic and environmental initiatives. I've always wanted to make a difference in the community, so it makes my job a lot more enjoyable knowing that I'm helping make a positive impact, even if it is indirect.

    Cons

    There's always new things to learn.

    I have been working at Purity Cosmetics full-time

    Pros

    I've loved it here since I was hired - my coworkers are absolutely amazing and management is kind as well. The work is consistently busy, but not too hard, and upper management isn't stingy with raises. I plan to be here for a long time.

    Cons

    I would like more opportunities to hang out with the rest of the staff!

    I have been working at Purity Cosmetics full-time

    Pros

    I love what this company does. It's a cruelty free, vegan, natural cosmetic company and I am very happy working for a company that does so much good. I work with the founder, Susie Wang who is very passionate, creative and very unique. The CEO and founder, Ric Kostick is very patient, kind and easy to talk to. The other founder, James Wang is very funny, lighthearted and easy going. Our team culture is very relaxed, hard working and we all share the same mission to make healthy products for people. I love beauty and it's the first time I've ever used / worked for a natural cosmetic company and it blew me away that these natural products are just as great as my favorite Mac lipsticks and La Mer facial creams.

    Cons

    I'm moving to San Francisco because I love the city life and wish we had a satellite office in New York or San Francisco. I think Silicon Valley is fine but wish the company was in a more cosmopolitan location.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see the brand in more retail outlets and retail stores in major cities. I don't understand some of the retail location decisions.

    Pros

    Great company that has honorable values I am aligned with. I'm not only obsessed with the cosmetic industry but also a huge animal advocate so I love that 100% Pure never tests on animals and are committed to vegan formulas. The executives, teammates are all very friendly and a great working environment. I'm very happy here! The company announced recently we are receiving funding soon and so I'm excited about the company's future growth!

    Cons

    There is construction next door and my car gets extremely dirty so I have to park at the very end of the building to prevent needing a car wash every week.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see more fun bonding activities with teammates outside of work.
