    I have been working at Toni & Guy

    Pros

    If you are looking for experience, this is definitely the place to go. You work on anything they might need next which can range from interior design to billboard all the way to online banner and web micro-sites.

    Cons

    Experience is definitely the only pay off. You don't get payed as much, because they work with a skeleton crew you find yourself doing everything and management usually does not understand their roles in the company so their is a constant shift in titles and positions.

    Pros

    Expert training, artistic and trade show experience. Learn how to create artistic photos and create top notch trendy hair fashions. Compensation is fair.

    Cons

    Growth is reserved for certain individuals. Environment can tend to get snobby at times, if you do not have a "thick skin", you may not want to apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear on your expectations, don't pick favorites based on gender or appearance.

    Not protecting their brand

    I have been working at Toni & Guy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is nice to get free hair services, including color.

    Cons

    No work life balance, no training, no pay for overtime- this is a franchise so may not be true of all locations. However, Toni & Guy corporate is not protecting their brand and making sure that the franchisees are delivering on the promises of the company name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check in on your franchisees and make sure that they are conforming to your brand requirements. I work in one of the Hairdressing Academies, and it looks nothing like the images that are promoted by your website. The students are kind of getting the curriculum that they are promised during their admissions meetings, but my school is nothing like I expected it to be based on learning about the history of Toni&Guy and the education division.

    Pros

    Great work environment and as far as salons go, best place to work for stability.

    Cons

    Its a huge corporation so you're just a number and corporate lets you know you can easily be replaced. You will only get so far in this company. You will never be able to progress past a certain point.

    Pros

    Great Networking! Everyone wants a cute haircut and color, so they go to one of the most famous names out there. Coworkers were nice and the potential to move up is definitely there if you make the effort

    Cons

    Loads of drama. Too many managers for too few employees. We had five managers for a staff of 20 (including them) and that was so excessive.
