    I have been working at Avon Products full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My team was very appreciative and it is over 6 months later and I still receive at least on call every day.

    Cons

    I managed 2 districts which were always in the top 5 ranking report.
    I won Circle of Excellence
    But then I got a new Divisional who made it obvious that she wanted to get rid of me and replace me with one of her own. In the end, 9 DSM's out of 15 have been replaced with younger, less educated and with less experience. Both of my districts are on a steady decline - One is at the very bottom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the damage that has been done in the last year. Hold your head high and admit mistakes were made. Get Avon back on the Success track they were on in 2010.

    I worked at Avon Products

    Pros

    Great culture, friendly work environment especially for us women. A chance to help other women achieve their goals of being independent. Great support for causes affecting women.

    Cons

    Lots of long timers which can be a bad thing sometimes as these are the people that will be promoted first versus the newer ones. You have to wait in line for your turn and that could be several years. Too many wrong macro level business decisions over the years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people and their careers. Stay focused and committed on one path rather than a sea of changes.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
