Sephora is a great company in that it strives to be a voice for those under-represented in our community. It aims to provide an inclusive culture and genuinely focuses on policies and programs that benefit the consumer.
The corporate level of Sephora offers access to a lot of exclusive events and "in-communities" that promote diversity in the workplace. Sephora provides health, dental and vision benefits along with other "perks" that occur throughout the year.
My team is especially hard-working and are always striving to push the envelope to improve company performance.
Jean Andre is the best! Hilarious and honest.
Some of the departments/teams at the corporate level are undervalued compared to the rest of the corporate office. The majority of mid-level employees (hourly) are underpaid compared to the upper echelons in other departments. From what I've seen personally, the hourly employees are the ones putting in the most work to keep the company running but don't get afforded the luxury to participate in company "Summer Fridays" and other "perks" provided throughout the year. Similar entry-level positions in different areas of the company pay significantly better for the same or less amount of work.
Sephora provides an annual continuing education program but there are limited spaces available. What spaces that are available are "sold out" within the same day.
From within my own team, the opportunities for promotion and growth seem limited. I can't speak for other departments.
Advice to Management
Take a hard look at how you're paying employees. Why are some valued more over others? Why are some departments repeatedly given awards for their performance but others are ignored? The growth and stability of the company can't be attributed only to the creative departments.

Sephora allows for great professional development. As a lower level associate you have frequent check ins with leadership as they work with you to develop your career path. There are also great benefits such as tons of free product and a great employee discount.
Can be a bit of a drama filled workplace but overall it was good.
