Pros

Clinical and Consumer testing.

Cons

Lack of promotions
Very low Salaries (Management claims they are competitive. They are are far from being competitive)
Poor decision making by management. There is a lack of communication between departments. You will see a lot of finger pointing instead of teamwork.
Lack of training for new emplyees. It's a very fast paced envirement which leaves very little time to train new emplyees. They are left to figure out the work on their own which leaves them open to making mistakes.
I don't know a single happy person. Walk through the building and all you will see are unhappy faces.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This company is about to crash and burn. Get rid of direct selling,promote your employees and boost up the moral!!!

    Pros

    Cool and Novel Products
    Nice Discounts
    Brochures are nice

    Cons

    Unless you use Avon products religiously and pretty much sell for the discounts you get, your pretty much making lunch money. Look into Mary K, at least you get a pretty pink car with them for your hard work lol.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your an Independent Contractor, you don't work directly for the company...your self-employed, tell Avon to go pound salt if they pressure you to work more hours etc. Their not going to do squat to you if your moving product especially if your the only warm body in your area...lol.
