I have been working at Avon Products

Pros

AVON has great products with reasonable pricing; it practically sells itself. There is a product for everyone. The Mark line is very trendy and has unique items. Avon is more than just make up and skin care.

Cons

Many times products are not available for order even though they are advertised in the catalog. Items are also discontinued often. For example: a client will fall in love with a perfume and then it's not offered any longer. This happens ALOT.

    I worked at Avon Products full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    some ability to make your own schedule. meeting wonderful people and helping to change lives. car is a perk. good benefits

    Cons

    management is clueless. a lot of unfair tactics go on here. you can work your butt off but if you don't kiss enough of them you will not last long. You can be fired even if you are in the top third of your division. Others will stay because they are liked. Very unfair treatment in this supposedly professional company. You will work long hrs 7 days a week for very little money or respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating managers like children in school. Give the respect you expect in return. Appreciate our hard work. Stop playing favorites. Get a grip , the leadership you have will never be self starters, they throw what they don't want to do at the managers and the managers are paid to do it. Let go of the managers and good luck staying a float.

    Don't work in marketing, it is the department that get blames constantly for the failure of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why can't you change the business models? Who wants to be sold products by a Rep who knows nothing about beauty?
