Pros

The culture at Avon R&D is one that really inspires personal and professional growth.
You are coupled with a mentor that will help you to overcome challenges and navigate the large corporate environment.
all management fosters a true R&D environment of trying and learning. Failure is not punished and it is expected that when trying to do something new and out of the box you are not going to be successful 100% of the time.

Cons

The people here can sometimes take themselves too seriously. We were making makeup not pacemakers.
Marketing and Product Development have a large turnover and are unorganized resulting in late turn overs and rush sloppy projects

    Pros

    Some best reasons to work at Avon are that the co-workers are nice, but stay away from MGMT - oh nevermind they would never associate themselves with their workers.

    Cons

    The pay is not where it should be if you are a long time employee, they treat you horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the game and treat everyone the same!

    I worked at Avon Products full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Meet new people, learn about the direct selling business, company car and benifits

    Cons

    Just make sure you know what you are getting in too before taking the position. The Divisional Managers are untouchable so do not think going to HR would resolve your issues. If you take the position make sure you do your Ride along in the open area to see the area vs getting hired trained then say well here is your area. Most of the time is the area no one wants.
