    Current Employee - Global Marketing
    Current Employee - Global Marketing

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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.
