Pros

The people are great, hard working and very committed to doing an excellent job with very little support. If you are in the field there is a good deal of flexibility as long as you are delivering results

Cons

The hours are unbelievable, the company expects 24/7, and if you are not working evenings and weekends it affects your prospects. If you are not one of the chosen ones in terms of a senior management favorite you may as well look for another job now. HR is one of the worst I have ever seen, they are manipulative and are constantly looking for reasons to "build a file" they cannot be trusted.

Advice to Management

Get the old boy network out and start fresh. Senior management is promoting friends from the past that are inept

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Bonus, Travel incentives. You have flexible time, meet with people and train them. Better their life trough relationships.

    Cons

    No time for Family, you are overwork. 14 hours a day, specially when celebrations are scheduled you start at 8 am and end at 11 pm at night with no brakes. One Divisional was so horrible that that whole division complained to HR and she is still in her position. HR is unexistent in Avon, they never listen to the employee and Managers always loose their jobs in retaliation.

    Advice to Management

    Do a reality check. Mrs. Andrea needs to go to the field with the Managers to see exactly what we do, then you will understand how important are the Managers to the business.
