I have been working at Avon Products full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

relationships, discount on personal products, car, flexibility

Cons

7 day work week, management is trying to hard to turn company around, they are changing their mind constantly. Hard to stay focused and organized. Direction is away from selling and more toward network marketing to strengthen rep count.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please get input from the management in the field. We are out here every day, we know what is going on... you are making decisions that affect everything, without consulting the workers who are in the trenches for you.

    Benefits for retirees

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Avon Products

    Pros

    At least they did a bridge when health insurance went away for my mother.

    Cons

    At almost 91, when they cancelled the $10,000 life insurance benefit it is now so costly to purchase life insurance - thru their deal with MetLife it is $313 a month!! What a deal!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cost to you to maintain this "benefit" for the older retirees would be minimal compared to their loss of confidence in a company they loved!! Most of these women thought of this as a "burial policy" and it is now impossible for them to maintain it on a pension of less than $500 a month.
