Pros

Entrepreneurial, wonderful people, gratifying work to help women and men achieve financial success, support a great cause - Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence.

Cons

Hard to advance in some departments, antiquated technology, in-ability to listen to employees suggestions to change

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become more agile to address technology changes and trends in market place more quickly. Put some money and focus behind some core products instead of creating millions of one hit wonders. When I left, the old Avon atmosphere of being a friendly place to work where Avon really cared and listened was almost totally gone. That was one of the BEST reasons to work for Avon in the past. Now it has become just a churn of robotic employees.

    Pros

    Great Company 10 yrs ago. To many bad decisions has taken the company from Great to Poor.

    Cons

    Changing their programs before they give them a chance to show results. They treat their employee's like numbers on a paper, no value for the people who have given them 10 plus years. High turnover of representatives, because they can't make money without training. Management expects 50 new representatives to be signed up every 2 weeks, with expectation the new reps sell $200 plus with their first order. Think Twice before you join this company!

    Pros

    Avon has a great group of people to work with! Most of us have remained close even after the building closure.

    Cons

    The shutting down of facilities and moving of manufacturing to China and Mexico. The scandal surrounding the old CEO. The inability to change the selling model to fit current buyer demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is incredibly frustrating to see upper management 'thriving' and receiving high salaries, bonuses, benefits while facilities are closing and being outsourced.
