    I have been working at Revlon

    Pros

    - Good intentions and willingness to try.
    - High levels of involvement
    - Small with ability to get your arms around the whole business

    Cons

    - Inward looking
    - Limited ambtion and unrealistic of what it takes to win
    - highly centralised with sr. mgt making all decisions without being fully in touch with market place realities
    - very arbitrary with one restructuring every 5-6 months. Rational for these never fully explained or beleived

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Growth is hard - Doing same things that have been done in the past and expecting differnt outcomes is not sensible.
    - Empower people - If you dont take the decisions you are never going to have your skin in the game.
    - Have some stability in the business - no more changing strategies, structure or ppl.

    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.
