I worked at Avon Products full-time (more than 8 years)

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.

    Pros

    Everyday is different with the people you work with and helping them with their businesses. Bonuses and time to build your schedule are the best portions of the job. Having the flexibility to work the business you see best is empowering.

    Cons

    Constant recruiting numbers of growing the business with new people instead of developing sales from within. Having so many job responsibilities but only have recruiting new representatives really matter is a constant balancing act.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The two week selling cycle could be adjusted to a three week selling cycle like in Europe where the company seems to be more profitable. The shipping schedule with abilities to have it tracked all the way to the door via UPS instead of our own contracted companies that work part time could be more price effective and responsible.
