      Pros

      I learned so much about being a worker, work/life balance, professionalism, and how to become an expert in my field.

      Cons

      Office politics are the worst, this company BREEDS mean girls, if management does not like you they will find a way to weed you out. The culture at ULTA is poisonous and as soon as I started respecting myself and standing up for myself, the company (and my direct boss) did not like that.

Does not Practice What they Preach! No work life balance - very manipulative culture, combative and aggressive behavior by DM's that operate out of Fear and Intimidation....THATS NOT CULTURE.
