    I have been working at Avon Products full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent Pay. Lots of paid time off. Pretty good benefits. Most of the time, bosses don't micro manage employees. Good co-workers, so long as you stick to the right ones, instead of jerks

    Cons

    Overbearing bosses, make rude distasteful remarks. Definitley a good ol' boys kind of place. Fairly sexist environment. A lot of bosses are engineers, and think only engineers are worthy of managing the place, over even people who study "gasp", business management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up. Let employees do their jobs. Most of them work very hard, and do a good job of it.

    Pros

    Some best reasons to work at Avon are that the co-workers are nice, but stay away from MGMT - oh nevermind they would never associate themselves with their workers.

    Cons

    The pay is not where it should be if you are a long time employee, they treat you horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the game and treat everyone the same!
