    Pros

    Nice office space, lot of cash to have parties, plenty of free skin care product, interesting business model, can-do attitude across the board, many consultants

    Cons

    Complete lack of project management (apparently the dumping game is much easier), high turnover in senior management, lack of medium- and long-term planning, many consultants

    Advice to Management

    Establish a PMO to bring in a sense of accountability for results. The 360 degree performance appraisals were a good attempt, but really backfired since the vast majority of middle management has so little experience.

    Pros

    Independence and creativity are the greatest assets in this company. Scheduling events and meetings to accommodate others is a breeze with no office hour restraints.

    Cons

    Building long-term clients is the downside in this business. The sale items are non-essential for normal everyday life. Therefore, when budget cuts arise out of necessity for people, these products are not a priority.

    Pros

    Great Product
    Great Co workers

    Cons

    Senior Management is a mess:
    CEO is not engaged with employees and has no true vision, only revenue focused
    Subpar benefits vs. location and industry
    No work from home flexibility
    Techn infrastructure is extremely behind
    Low and Mid level corporate staff is completely under appreciated and layers are being added to the top vs. at the low and mid level

    Advice to Management

    The Field department under the Chief Field Officer is toxic with people quitting every week. There is no empowerment, respect, or processes built for the employees.

    Great benefits with unlimited possibilities to grow!

    Fractured leadership that tends to side with external customers over internal ones.

    Advice to Management

    The external customer is not always right.

    Pros

    Company is in a state of hyper growth but is still relatively small in size so there is a lot of opportunity to make an impact and gain leadership visibility. Motivating, exciting culture with opportunity to work a lot of intelligent, passionate people.

    Cons

    The fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment may not be right for everyone but if you are ready for a challenge and willing to roll up your sleeves then you'll fit right in!

    I have been working at Rodan + Fields full-time

    Pros

    I can only speak for the creative and marketing dept since I’m not very familiar with the other departments. I know there are a lot of low rating here but I can honestly say the company is going through a rapid growth spurt and is in process of getting organized-which is much needed.

    Overall the creative team is probably the best group of people I’ve ever worked with. The brand is evolving and it’s exciting to be a part of the process. We are encouraged to explore new ideas. Yes-the CD’s and AD’s empower their team. It’s a chaotic place but you work with a great group of folks that make it fun.

    Good competitive salary, room for growth, great benefits package.

    Cons

    Company needs more structure and processes need to be more streamlined. Deadlines are sometimes humanely impossible. I think other departments need to understand that the creative dept also has a process to execute campaigns/assets and it takes a lot of research and conceptualization to final execution on our end. A lot of man hours. It’s not like you take a photo and add an Instagram filter over it and it’s done. That’s not how it works. The new work being created speaks for itself-respect that.

    Advice to Management

    Implement processes and structure so we aren’t spinning in circles there is no time for that with the growth.
