    Pros

    Global experience (but due to budget cuts no traveling to any of the markets, just lots of conference calls) New product development (if in Global Marketing) The people Good products

    Cons

    AVON is a direct seller- if you want to do real marketing, this is not the place for it. You will be in a project management role. AVON does not develop strong marketers- there is no discussion about the consumer or insights. There is little consumer work done- most of the time VPs make decisions based on n of 1- what they think and feel. Lots of unethical practices and people are treated very poorly. But HR and management ignore all issues brought to their attention. Pay is incredibly poor but you are expected to work long hours to redo strategies as management continuously shifts direction. Most of the strong talent has left or will continue to leave. And management will continue to wonder why there is so much turnover. In fact so many people have left morale is incredibly low.

    Advice to Management

    Sell to Coty. Or wait. Guess that ship has sailed.


  2. A love the product, but I'll stick to being a buyer

    Pros

    It affords you the opportunity to work part-time or full-time.

    Cons

    Don't count on support from your district, you're pretty much on your own.
