    Pros

    401k, summer fridays, great brands, staff shop, dynamic, positive, diverse and open environment compared to most beauty companies. Overall the people are genuine and collaborative. They even sent us hand sanitizer to our home during lock down! The Bullying CMO and her cronies gone has been a big step forward last year.

    Cons

    Brands under funded, unrealistic expectations with resources available, Vacancies not filled, Amsterdam move disaster, company takes on too much at once and this holds it back. Hope it will change under another new CEO.
