I worked in Cosmetics as a counter manager and a beauty stylist and got up 8 weeks of 60% paid maternity leave, which was great. Since the environment is commission based, it was difficult to be a breastfeeding/pumping mother when I came back, as time away from the floor was looked down on. Sales floor was very competitive, as jobs are constantly threatened if goals are not met. Rarely were people actually fired though--it is used more as a scare tactic. Gay men were given preference in every area, as the general assumption was that women would purchase more from them.

Sadly, it's a mean girl culture. Women do not encourage others growth. Rather they tend to criticize other women to raise themself up.

Be prepared to join the male mafia. Learn who upper management personally likes and dislikes and follow suit. Get in with the marketing clique and you'll go far.

Most leadership positions are filled by men, and they are keen to promote and hire from a shared social group made up of other men.

Buying offices: they own you. They expect you to work 10-11+ hour days because of the work load. Management also has no life so they expect you not to either. Not many women in leadership have children and if they do they are relatively absentee, so they do not understand the need for flexibility. Compensation does not warrant the demanding workload either.

disability for bed rest plus 6 weeks standard maternity. My last 6 weeks only paid out at a percentage because I used up my full pay leave mostly during bed rest.

Great benefits. Exciting and motivational people to be around. Potential to be stressful for mothers with young kids because pay is commission-based and long hours on the floor on your feet.
