Former Employee - Sales Associate

I worked at American Apparel part-time

Pros

Discount, culture, people you work with

Cons

Management unless you sell lots

Current Employee - Brand Building

I have been working at Amika full-time

Pros

I've seen swift action and action plans for diversity and inclusion. Sincere messaging from management about company stance. Open to criticism and making necessary changes. They have also been really... thoughtful about how they manage furloughs, lay offs and salary reductions during the pandemic. Everyone works really hard and is super passionate about their work and it shows in the growth of the brand.

Cons

HR could use a revamping but I believe this is something that is now being prioritized. Quite a bit of gossiping, which can be distracting. However since everyone is currently working from home it... has less impact on work productivity.
