I have been working at Avon Products full-time

Pros

The new CEO is trying to change Avon and brought in a new HR VP that is working to change the behaviors of consensus building and lack of decision making.

Cons

For a long time Avon has been about relationships. Therefore, a lot of people have positions they don't have the skillset for.

More important to be liked than good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the executive pool.

    Benefits for retirees

    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.
