Just a nice place nothing more to it
Leadership Consultant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 25, 2016
Unless you're an employee, The benefits of occasional free make-up or discounted products is not really a perk unless you think it is.

Compensation is competitive but not like wow. The 401K matching is good, and the health benefits is next to none.

Management of the Brands is difficult to work with because some do carry attitude and have high egos. High strung personality and watch for folks on your own team to stab your back. No sense of team culture because most of the folks that work there are contractors except for management and a few.
Pros
discounted make-up
Cons
everything else

Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 19, 2016
Pay is okay - could be much better. Company is very hierarchical and it's tough to progress. Many people often leave and come back. Benefits are pretty good but hours are long and tech is horrible.
