    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

    Pros

    It's a job to go for right out of school when you do not have any work experence. But get out when you have a chance.

    Cons

    There is not any fairness. They dont consider any family matters as important. The pay raises are very, very low. If you get any at all. The benifits are average. It dont pay to be there long term. No room for advancement. Not a good place for some to make a career out of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up. Listen to your employees. Dont get rid of your valuable employees. You want to try and keep them as long as possible. They are the ones that make your business grow and prosper. To many people in management and not enough workers.

    Pros

    They have good benefits for their employees compared with other companies in the same industry. Also, they offer some small company attitude to the larger business.

    Cons

    The company revolves around who you know rather then what you know. Their company training policy doesn't exist and there is a lack of motivation in a good deal of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move into the 21st century, and reward good work rather then good looks. Innovation is something to be proud of, rather then looked down at.

    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.

    Pros

    Revlon is great to work mainly because of the people. Everyone is nice, smart and fun. Depending on the brand, we run huge marketing campaigns. Also, it is a small company so everyone has visibility to senior management.

    Cons

    Revlon has had many years of financial difficulty due in part failed product launches and bad marketing campaigns. Because of this, senior management holds all of the marketing power and brand managers don't get to make decisions without higher approval.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Alan Ennis has been a strong leader since taking the post of CEO. Employees like him and trust the decisions he makes.

    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.
