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

    Pros

    Every other Friday off. No cost for parking. Assistants try to organize potluck gatherings for holidays. Good, safe area. Building recently renovated. In-house nail salon and free product perks.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover. Low employee morale. Contract temps are rarely offered full time positions and just keep extending the contracts. No one seems to know how to do anything and just passes buck to save themselves. Gross work ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Notice the talent in front of you and release the dead weight. Too many exceptional employees have left because they were not recognized. Too many LONG term employees that are a cancer to the company and cannot pull their own weight.

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

    Pros

    Flat organization, summer and holiday hours, small teams so it is easier to know who people are and what they do.

    Cons

    Very lean organization - there's always too much work to be done and permanently short on people to do it. Work-life balance is heavily weighted towards work. Decision-making only at the top levels (VP and such), the rest is about getting someone else's decision implemented.

    I worked at Revlon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, good location, summer Fridays

    Cons

    Too many approvals needed for a decision to be made, a lot of bureaucracy, it's not what you know it's who you know, no career growth opportunities, no discount or perks

    Advice to Management

    Allow others a hand in decision making, there is too much dependency on the approval process. Effectively develop a plan for grooming your employees, offer computer training to enhance skills

    Long history of decline - hope it's improved since I've left, as they have great brands.

    Pros

    Beauty category is a fun space, when you get to spend time on the brand, marketing and new product innovation. There are some great individual people there, if you look.

    Cons

    While I was there, it seemed management would always operate with tied hands, answering to majority shareholder who lacks ability to manage the company. We spent too much time on non-value added tasks, nothing to do with marketing, brands, or consumer - e.g. reformatting spreadsheets based on who's in charge that day.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in experienced brand marketers with success running and turning around businesses - and let them do what they do best. Hold on to the best talent by keeping them happy and creating a positive, open culture.

    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 Management

    - 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.
