I worked at Revlon

Pros

Good name to have on resume. May lead to better position in other personal care companies.

Cons

Since 2007 there were layoffs to try to recover management's mistakes. They never seemed to be able to make money, so they keep on cutting people. The company is a shell of the former cosmetic manufacturer it was in the late 80's and early 90's. A lot of talented people were let go and some old timers that should have been, are still there. The atmosphere has been gloomy for at least the last three years. It can only get better if the company is bought out by someone who has better business sense in the industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try new blood at levels. The old ways of doing business isn't working.

    I have been working at Revlon

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth and advancement, fair compensation package, interesting and varied job responsibilities, great brand presence and pride of the staff in the Revlon Brand and its history

    Cons

    Work/Life balance needs to be improved in some depts, Sr. Management tends to initiate too many new company initiatives at one time, resulting in a heavier workload for the staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To prioritize projects and to coach your staff through them. Work with staff to ensure that work/life balance is throughout the company

  2. An internship at Revlon was an incredible experience to have at such a crucial deciding point in my life.

    I worked at Revlon as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent, fun, collaborative, and communicative people made this experience hugely informative and exciting for me.
    I was able to sit in on meetings that helped me see how the company, and my department, ran and what to expect if I ever have a position at the company. Many leaders took an interest in learning about what I do in school, and what I wanted to do in my career, and shared their experiences.

    Cons

    There was, as in all internships, some "busy work".
    Didn't feel comfortable voicing my desire to go to more meetings and see more creative processes until almost the end of my internship.
    My cube was quite a distance from most of the people I was doing work for, which was slightly uncomfortable especially at the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more time at the beginning of an internship to let interns shadow you, attend meetings, etc. There could have been a better plan in place instead of bouncing interns (or in my experience at least) from person to person asking if they had projects or to explain certain things.
