    I have been working at Revlon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits. 15 Vacation days, 40 hours of Paid leave, And 4 floating holidays is good for a manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Lousy pay. Most people with wife and children cannot live on the salary of my position. I mean 22,000 a year is barely living in this country

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People of my position should at least get paid a living wage, also most people view my position as a dead end position. there is no way to move up at the company.

    I worked at Revlon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Summer Hours and Holiday Hours really help with work-life balance
    The office was located just outside of Grand Central Station so was an easy commute for most and convenient for shopping and lunch
    They did offer a pension plan, though I am not sure if they still do
    Great discounts on cosmetics

    Cons

    Bonuses were not paid while I was there, I found this demotivating
    Frequent downsizing left the remaining employees concerned

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for people that care about the brand and the organization, not just their jobs.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Revlon

    Pros

    The people here were generally very nice and very smart. They were happy to teach you whatever they knew The standards for job competency are high and you will be forced to develop excellent technical skills if you want to keep yours. The products are very nice and amazingly creative considering that they do not have alot of money to invest in the business. If you are not a hard worker you will be unhappy here; this is not a place where you can coast and maintain an under the radar existence.

    Cons

    Financially shaky
    No hesitancy in firing people; somewhat brutal in that respect
    Could be better about disciplining problem managers - they are more concerned about performance here, sometimes don't care enough about employee morale or satisfaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Historical hires are fired too readily whenever they bring in a new management team, and then a few years later that management team is thrown out and the whole process begins again. Maybe it would be good to question new management who wants to come in and fire everyone and bring in their own people.

    Pros

    - Cross functional teams are generally strong
    - Ability to work on high visibility campaigns
    - Hours are reasonable with people out the door by 6-7PM (no wknds)

    Cons

    - Culture is very hierarchical
    - Marketing work is reporting and execution heavy
    - Behind the curve on using latest tools to market to consumers such as social media

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Management is very finance focused and they need more marketing or sales focus at the top to set the proper direction of the company
    - Empower the Marketing department with resources to know more about the consumer in order to aid the development of new products and to use marketing tools more effectively
