Not ideal for traditional brand marketers

Global Marketing (Current Employee)

I have been working at Avon Products full-time

ProsYou get tons of experience working in and leading cross-functional teams.
You get experience launching a large number of products each year.

ConsNo real brand building as in traditional brand management roles.
No real consumer insights used in launching new products.
Very hierarchal, with basic decisions being made my Global VP.
Oftentimes, no exposure to senior management if you are a Brand Manager or below.
Lots of turnover in marketing.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to push decision making down to those that are working on the brands day-to-day. Utilize more consumer research and stick to it when proceeding with decisions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
