    Pros

    Working with consumer products, employees are valued, always work to be done, and there are many types of projects and products to work with.

    Cons

    Not a great location, little room to move up, company money is mostly tied up in marketing, little capital for manufacturing, but no discounts/free products for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Problems escalate when the solutions are band-aids, instead of preventing them from happening in the first place.

    Pros

    Great people, excellent chance to learn about the cosmetic industry. I was given many opportunities to advance during my time there.

    Cons

    Can be "click-ish"! If you're not in the inner circle, you will not be recognized or commended for you work. Turn over rate is very high. Many come in and find out it's not what they expected.

    Pros

    Many long term employees who care about the business.
    Opportunities are there if you work hard and are focused..

    Cons

    The market category is volatile; when the company prospers employees do; when the economy is flat, that is when changes are made. Basic business principals followed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your your biggest assets --- your employees

    Pros

    Fun, creative industry in the middle of New York City. Really nice working environment with smart, nice people. Large advertising campaigns.

    Cons

    Revlon was in such a bad place financially, that they brought in finance people to straighten everything out. The financials have gotten so much better, but there are no marketing people at the top level. A brand-driven company should probably have some marketing input at the highest level...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is getting better all the time. As soon as the leaders trust what the workers are doing, the products will do even better.

    Pros

    Revlon is great to work mainly because of the people. Everyone is nice, smart and fun. Depending on the brand, we run huge marketing campaigns. Also, it is a small company so everyone has visibility to senior management.

    Cons

    Revlon has had many years of financial difficulty due in part failed product launches and bad marketing campaigns. Because of this, senior management holds all of the marketing power and brand managers don't get to make decisions without higher approval.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Alan Ennis has been a strong leader since taking the post of CEO. Employees like him and trust the decisions he makes.
