One of the worse run companies ever with staff to match

Executive Director (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Avon Products full-time for more than 3 years

Prosnone other than location of the NYC offices

Cons- Back stabbing environment that starts at the top
- As a leader, you have no say in what happens in your group or with your staff. You are told what to do and when to do it.
- HR is a horror show. They have no sense of what is right and decent.
- Its amazing they are still in business.

Advice to Senior Management- Look at your tenure of new hires and talent (that you probably paid a lot of money to attract) - most will leave in a year.
 - Wipe out HR and start over with caring individuals.
- Really look into a buy out - it may be your only hope.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
