    Pros

    great product and great marketing

    Cons

    senior management detached and unfocused. Very political organization. Don't expect to get ahead based on ability, talent or hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. You are getting rid of the people that were dedicated and have some talent and keeping those that tell you what you want to hear. Revlon used to be well regarded, but that is no longer the case.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Revlon

    Pros

    - Good intentions and willingness to try.
    - High levels of involvement
    - Small with ability to get your arms around the whole business

    Cons

    - Inward looking
    - Limited ambtion and unrealistic of what it takes to win
    - highly centralised with sr. mgt making all decisions without being fully in touch with market place realities
    - very arbitrary with one restructuring every 5-6 months. Rational for these never fully explained or beleived

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Growth is hard - Doing same things that have been done in the past and expecting differnt outcomes is not sensible.
    - Empower people - If you dont take the decisions you are never going to have your skin in the game.
    - Have some stability in the business - no more changing strategies, structure or ppl.

    Pros

    They have good benefits for their employees compared with other companies in the same industry. Also, they offer some small company attitude to the larger business.

    Cons

    The company revolves around who you know rather then what you know. Their company training policy doesn't exist and there is a lack of motivation in a good deal of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move into the 21st century, and reward good work rather then good looks. Innovation is something to be proud of, rather then looked down at.

    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.
