I have been working at Avon Products

Pros

- get to work with genuinely dedicated & talented coworkers
- new offices are convenient and modern

Cons

- senior leadership worst I have ever seen. They have no idea what they are doing
- no clear actionable business strategy
- low employee engagement & retention
- no career paths/ opportunities for advancement
- culure of favoritism vs merit based recognition
- depts are under resourced, employees are overworked & don't believeThe hype... No Work life balance

Only if you want to work at a company & do the work of 3 people - get paid for one -
With little to no recognition or opportunity to advance... Then maybe Avon is the right place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Time to overhaul senior level management & realize that there is a reason the talent that has sustained the company is leaving every day.

    Pros

    You learn a LOT and QUICKLY
    Work/Life balance is respected
    Facility is nice

    Cons

    Pay is lacking compared to other companies
    Fast pace is unlike anything I've had to work in before

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micro-managing makes things MUCH harder on the Managers...let us have our ability to think and make decisions back. It will make us feel more attached to our work.

    Pros

    Close to my house in Stamford. Discounts on cosmetics. Close to train station

    Cons

    Joined the company 6 years ago, and have had 4 managers in that time. Each is worse than the last. One manager actually equates vacation with working remotely, and has even called people on their vacation.
    Zero succession planning or internal growth opportunities. Every time a manager quits, they hire another in the same mold from outside. Would never recommend as a place to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring managers who have no clue about planning, and who cover up their poor skills by requiring employees to work nights and weekends
