    I have been working at Xtreme Lashes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company has offered me lots of growth potential. I came in as a brand manager, more focused on print and TV and have been given the opportunity to develop strong skills in digital marketing. The CEO, Jo Mousselli, invests a lot in technology and software and challenges employees to grow beyond their comfort zone to bring projects to the next level. She cares about her employees and even provided financial support...

    Cons

    We're dealing with short staffing, which increases the workload for the team. The company is working on hiring more people, but it is not easy to find people with experience in the beauty industry. Houston is bigger in oil&gas / medical.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on hiring more people, so we can get new projects over the finish line

    I worked at Xtreme Lashes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are nice & willing to help you learn what you want / need to learn - it’s a good place for interns. Free snacks?

    Cons

    Low morale, negative energy. Micromanaging at its finest! Management is involved in everything and doesn’t trust employees to do their job - which they were hired for in the first place. Everyond thinks they know everything even if they don’t work in your department. Lack of trust - again, employees don’t do the job they’re hired to do in the first place. Lack of respect and sense of time - meetings constantly...

    Advice to Management

    Many reviews on here have been essentially the same, things are still the same. ADVICE TO FUTURE / POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES? they seem nice at first glance but once you get into the work itself it’s stressful. know your worth professionally because there’s a lot of opportunities out there. I would also trust the reviews, but don’t be fooled by the ones with 5 stars because they do ask employees internally to write good...

    I worked at Xtreme Lashes full-time

    Pros

    - The people - Free snacks

    Cons

    - Low compensation. They will milk you and underpay you. - Benefits aren't that great. - Snacks are alright. - Upper-management, specially C-Suite (CEO) is pretty set in their ways and it hinders the company from making any progress. - Meetings happen too often and they last forever. Not only will you be in a meeting for 3 hours, but you'll probably get nothing accomplished once it's over and will have to have another...

    Advice to Management

    Any advice won't be heard by upper management as they seem to believe that things are being run smoothly despite the high employee turnover and low morale.

    Cons

    Website needs to be upgraded. What they have now is very informative but it was developed years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Staff up. You are trying to do too much with too few employees. But keep your entrepreneurial spirit.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Xtreme Lashes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The office is very flexible you can pretty much do whatever you want as long as your core responsibilities are finished. If you like to have freedom over your day it's a pretty good fit. They do expect a lot but you will often find people mingling outside smoking and chatting for hours on end.

    Cons

    The leadership team is completely confused on their responsibilities. You will often find the Marketing Director listening in on HR meetings and the HR Director being asked to go grocery shopping. Everyone is pretty much there as a yes man to the CEO whatever she wants is what gets done. The only problem is she may change her mind several times within one meeting. Meetings typically run about 3 hours each. Also...
