I have been working at Avon Products part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Make your own hours Set your own goals Run your own business Leadership is geared towards helping you advance

Cons

Sometimes leadership is not well versed with using the website or answering questions about things like returns or technical issues. Customer service is outsourced and operators sometimes do not understand the question being asked, and have at times given the wrong answer.

Advice to Management

Don't outsource customer service, and make sure that representatives are trained to ask leading questions if they are not certain about the question being asked.

    I have been working at Avon Products full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 Management

    Need 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.
