    I worked at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great employee benefits like free products and accessible discounts, always got paid as per guidelines (I know a lot of other makeup companies don't pay on time), friendly environment mostly and the products are actually really good and well structured approach to makeup and skincare

    Cons

    Strong lack of communication from upper management, clear favouritism, little to no career progression or development as there is no more formal training or mentoring, strong retail decline due to growth online and neglect to the actual running of stores, product quality has started to drop since Bobbi left in 2016, all Estee Lauder brushes have gone synthetic hair for the same price point but strong drop in quality
