    I worked at Revlon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Steady work. A good seasonal job if you are a college student working in the summer or are into manufacturing.

    Cons

    The employees are jerks. Management has little regard for the health and well-being of employees. Need to raise the salary of temporary employees from $7.25 an hour to at least $9.00 per hour.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of your business.

    Pros

    Some of the employees are really great people to work with

    Cons

    There are great supervisors, but some of those management do not look out or stand up for their employees. Many of them forget they were once hourly employees, too, and don't stick up for those who still are...They ask you to go above and beyond, but there are no raises or incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Give your hard-workers the benefit of the doubt, everything isn't always so cut and dried. Give raises and incentives, it would increase morale and productivity.

    Pros

    Benefits, long time employees, vacation

    Cons

    Too many to list, I guess the main one would be decide on a strategy and stick with it.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the path you want to go down and stop changing it midstream, too much swirl

    An unprofessional company - simply due to lack of communication skills as cursing and screaming doesn't qualify.

    Pros

    Convenient office location and that is about the only pro I can assess.

    Cons

    Not a very ethical company to work for...!

    Advice to Management

    Take Management 101 course - this may help them lead/manage the company/teams in a more professional format.

    I have been working at Revlon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The pay is competitive compared to other similar firms. - They try to work to provide employees with a work-life balance. - International company with a strong brand.

    Cons

    - Most of the work provided is mundane and repetitive. There is no real innovation at the company. Known to be a status quo company. - Employee advancement is ridiculously limited. I met employees who have worked for the company for 35 years are still Senior Analyst and have not been provided the opportunity to move up within the firm. - The company has a strategy of working separately and then throwing the separate parts together to create the product. There is not much collaboration between the departments in the company to create more innovative ideas to help grow the company. - Honestly, I hear employees spend more time complaining about working for the company than actually doing work for the company. It's the saddest form of productivity ineffectiveness I have ever seen. - Management is good at selling the company and its positions, but the pitch is a lot stronger than what they have to actually offer. A company with a brand this strong cant crack the Fortune 1000, there is a reason for that. Not where you want to be.

    Advice to Management

    Groom and grow. Stop picking people from other companies that have no idea about your product and strategies. Also pay closer attention to your current employees and reevaluate their effectiveness and cut the fat. Get younger, and innovate. Stop being status quo. Don't believe me look at their financials for the last 5 years, always between 1.0-1.3B

    Pros

    It's a job to go for right out of school when you do not have any work experence. But get out when you have a chance.

    Cons

    There is not any fairness. They dont consider any family matters as important. The pay raises are very, very low. If you get any at all. The benifits are average. It dont pay to be there long term. No room for advancement. Not a good place for some to make a career out of.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. Listen to your employees. Dont get rid of your valuable employees. You want to try and keep them as long as possible. They are the ones that make your business grow and prosper. To many people in management and not enough workers.

    I worked at Revlon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice brand, some good high performing colleagues, flexi-time

    Cons

    Performance review process introduced but simply a tick-box exercise created then not reviewed again until year end - Not really a performance development/management tool, under-hand management style. Focussed on the negative and the bad. Poor leadership. A claimed no-blame culture which is more about avoiding accountability/responsibility and hence very little can be learned when things do go wrong. I've read this somewhere else but it's true at Revlon too..."The company revolves around who you know rather than what you know".

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest, say what you do and do what you say
