I worked at Avon Products full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

- Global projects, global partners
- You can actually make a difference
- Opportunity to support many different departments
- Senior management is generally open to new ideas
- Very flexible work hours; great work/life balance

Cons

- Although the company is often open to new ideas, most new ideas are ultimately shut down
- Associates work until they retire; top talent eventually moves on. Associates with questionable talent and questionable values tend to linger.
- Creative Direction is often approved and led by associates with a sales background or that happened to stay with the company for decades.
