    I worked at Benefit Cosmetics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people on the sales floor, good product, very structured if you don’t have significant experience, good place to learn the basics of beauty and field management.

    Cons

    Micro managed, no senior management have any experience managing at their level in any other business and as a result have no new ideas that may work to bring to the business and are intimidated by anyone that does. Senior management speak about the field team and sales staff very inappropriately and disrespectfully. Refuse to move with the industry clinging onto ideas that have a proven track record of not working. Field team would be more productive and have more care for their work if they were respected. Company values are a facade.
