Good Corporate Environment, Nice People

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) New York, NY

Pros- Andrea Jung is an amazing, inspiring, and effective leader.
- Work/life balance was great as an admin (due to my particular SVP).
- Professional atmosphere, beautiful offices.
- For the most part, very good, collaborative, supportive people from all over the world.
- Company discount on Avon products.
- A company that is truly lead by women.
- Internationally known and respected company.
- Hourly compensation was at/above market rate.

Cons- As with most companies, a great experience is directly connected to those you support.
- Enormous organization and very easy to get lost. Admin roles are very administrative, very little project work. You can start to feel like a robot.
- Heavy calendaring consumes a great deal of EA role, requiring careful relationship development with other EAs and ongoing requests for favors. Particularly when attempting to secure time on an Executive level calendar.
- Meetings running longer than 1.5 hours are typical, leaving you to wonder how productive constant back-to-back meetings are for everyone involved.
- Believe Avon has suffered some since Andrea Jung's change in role.
- You don't get a general sense that senior/middle management cares about you.
- Clear communication was lacking with HR.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
