    Avon's mission is admirable and so are many of its people, but how it operates is broken and there is NO career dev't.

    I have been working at Avon Products full-time

    Pros

    Great to work for a company that also has a good mission... it is the #1 micro lender in the world I think. Many people are down to earth.

    Cons

    Promotions are rare and usually given to save someone from leaving rather than from merit. Raises and bonuses are non existent since company's financials are so poor. Hours can be bad as there have been lots of layovers and mgmt doesn't make decisions effectively. Company does not encourage change as much as it should.

    Advice to Management

    One way out of the mess is to start focusing on your people who work for you. Prioritize talent management and career development. Encourage people to speak up, take risks, and reward them for doing so (even if the results are perfect at first.). That will create a more innovative, positive environment.

    Pros

    Great people for the most part. People always seem to be willing to help each other out. Also, most people leave the job at work. Fast development cycle.

    Cons

    Executive Senior Management in R&D is dicey. Especially in the Product Safety & Integrity group. Downright brutal. I wouldn't work in that group regardless of the salary. No ability to speak your mind in PSI.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the head of PSI.
