    Pros

    Easier job to excel in. Opportunities to learn new tasks. Mainly friendly employees who try to make the experience tolerable.

    Cons

    Management plays favoritism. Assistant management overloaded with workload. If you don't have connections, you will never make it to upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't join in the gossip.

    Pros

    You do have flexibility in your schedule so you can schedule personal appointments and in remote management you work from home.

    Cons

    The company is in transition and reactive in trying new roles and technology. It is no longer just a direct selling company focused on sales as the direction is multi-level marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back sales focus that made this company a great place to work and support the sales representatives and pay bonus on sales.

    Pros

    Be your own boss. Make up your own hours. Meet new people. Make money and test products.

    Cons

    If you're the shy type, this isn't the job for you. Must learn how to communicate with others. Must be ok getting rejected. Not many people want to be bothered by a sales person.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in contact with employees. Give more tips on how to sell.


  8. Hierarchical and abusive environment

    I worked at Avon Products

    Pros

    The peer group within the global marketing group was supportive, enthusiastic, and hard working.

    Cons

    Management was layered with internal political biases and a bit out of the loop with what the issues were on the front lines.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the new world; revise expectations. Work life balance is important and the volume of products and the number of fire drills (for new numbers) were excessive.


  9. Good environment
