    I have been working at Ulta Beauty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company values, decent work life balance, over time is frowned upon, great salon discount, company seems to value employees opinions through culture surveys annually and we saw change at a field level, good brand training, good opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    Pay is low for responsibilities expected to fulfill, time is not given to recruit or network outside their 4 walls, you must come from a strong leadership background as there is not really a structured leadership outline or program on the retail side of the business. Sense of urgency around filling management positions lacking from DM and higher.

    Advice to Management

    If your initiatives include staffing and scheduling, give us the time to recruit and network outside of the customers that walk in. Leaving management positions open for months and months is unacceptable. Continue to listen to your field staff through the culture surveys. We appreciate that you're listening and making changes. Spend the payroll so we can make money and protect our inventory. And last but most important, create a leadership program that teaches your "green" managers how to be better leaders so they can better inspire their employees.

    Pros

    Simply put it's an easy job. Everyone is pretty friendly most the time- if you can't deal with cattiness then don't get a job in retail.

    Cons

    You have to be on top of what you want from the company, if you don't they will decide what happens for you.

    Advice to Management

    Idk I haven't had any run ins with our management... sometimes they can be weird about you asking certain things. Just be respectful when you word things and it's fine.
