      Pros

      Regional team and management were awesome, great gratis, flexible dress code. Good salary.

      Cons

      Corporate management likes workers who kiss up to them, rather than workers who may not "kiss their butt" quite as much but actually do the work and work hard.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - lots of free product - cool staff, very casual but creative - teams work very well

      Cons

      - almost zero upward mobility if you’re an intern or a temp - between teams, in can get tense and upper management doesn’t seem to take employees’ concerns or suggestions seriously

      Pros

      Traveling to events can be exciting. Get to meet very unique clients.

      Cliques all the way up to the top. Can't leave an afterparty even if you are sick. Upper Management use scare tactics.

      Think twice

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Gratis, no dress code, not your traditional corporate office environment.

      Cons

      The company is pretty much a sinking ship, and most of the people at the corporate office are miserable (unless they're too new to see beyond the "cool" exterior to what lies underneath). Avoid at all costs.

      Pros

      The company does have fun, innovative products. Amazing gratis program.

      Cons

      The roles you're placed in are really no different than being a freelance makeup artist. You're just in-store selling 8 hours a day every day. The job descriptions are really misleading.
