    I worked at Avon Products as a contractor for less than a year

    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.
