    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

    Lean, flat organization with a collaborative environment that focuses on grooming its people

    Cons

    As with any company each personal experience is different and some employees may have individual downsides of working at the Company, but on the whole working at Revlon is an enjoyable experience.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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

    competent management and pride. The working environment also felt like a family and alot of the hourly laborer had many years of service to the company.

    Cons

    The town is pretty boring and promotions were not too frequent. In addition, there wasnt really a close major university so that decreased the avenue for educational improvement

    Advice to Management

    Instill better training methodologies
