    Because Ulta is an innovative company it can be difficult to keep up with the changes sometimes. And The acronyms can be a little excessive.

    Pros

    The discount you get on products is great!

    Cons

    Due to corporate always cutting pay roll, the store is usually minimally staffed. So hours can be hard to get and busy days can be pretty stressful. There are also unrealistic expectations of what an employee can get done in their shift. Disorganization at the corporate level is also very evident
