Fun company to work for.
Counter Manager (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYMay 16, 2017
The job was good for the most part but it was hard to advance in the company. Also, it's hard to get a full time postition there unless you are a store manager or assistant store manager.

Great Place to work in the Professional Hair Care world
Regional Education Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 1, 2017
A great place to work, but you will be putting in long hours and traveling. It is a true family and you will feel apart of that even when your position is eliminated.

Great if you have good management and coordinator
Beauty Artist (Current Employee) –  Southdale Center, Edina, MNApril 25, 2017
I've been working for Urban Decay for the past six months and while it is a great brand with great products, working at the counter on a day-to-day basis can be really challenging. The primary driving factor in your daily life is sales. As long as you make your numbers you will be successful, if not it is a pretty tough job. There is no artistry training or focus at UD, so if you want to be a better makeup artist or value makeup artistry, you should look somewhere else.
Pros
Decent pay and benefits, fun brand, flexible dress code.
Cons
Sales are the most important, unknown growth opportunities, not knowing about products early.

Unrealistic goals for field

Great place to gain experience. Not a lot of opportunity for growth. Nyc based office so your best bet is to move to the east coast if you are looking for advancement.
Pros
Free goods
Cons
Unrealistic goals

Senior Manager, Brand Communications (Current Employee) –  Denver, COApril 10, 2017
L'Oreal is a fast paced, driven, and challenging work environment. It's the type of place where you build a career vs. just getting up and going to a job everyday.

Temporary
Chemical Operator (Former Employee) –  Florence, KYApril 5, 2017
Treated everyone good. Temporaries though were seemingly just brought in to spike production levels with no real opportunity for placement. Good temporary job if that's what you're looking for, but seemingly pointless if you're looking for a career.
Pros
friendly

Picker/Packer (Former Employee) –  Monmouth Junction, NJApril 4, 2017
They have no work life balance. They feel the employees should know everything on day 1. The employees should have more patient and create more training programs or improve the training they have.
Pros
Plenty of overtime
Cons
Not friendly

BEWARE: Super Tough and Toxic Work Environment
Global Social Media Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 31, 2017
A classic work environment with lots of finger-pointing and too many meetings. Very long work hours. Work-life balance is very hard.

Experience greatly depends on which brand you are on and who your manager is. You will learn a great deal though!
Pros
good pay, lots of learning experience
Cons
toxic work culture, long hours, executives over-work lower level
