    Pros

    They give some a chance to grow from within

    Cons

    You must be a player to stay, golf, parties, and other things. It is not enough to put in long hours, but you must play after work with the higher ups if you want to stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop allowing your directors to treat supervisors as thought they were complete idiots. I had one director admit he had threatened an employee. When it was brought tot he attention to upper management it was denied and dropped.

    Great learning experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Revlon

    Pros

    The people here were generally very nice and very smart. They were happy to teach you whatever they knew The standards for job competency are high and you will be forced to develop excellent technical skills if you want to keep yours. The products are very nice and amazingly creative considering that they do not have alot of money to invest in the business. If you are not a hard worker you will be unhappy here; this is not a place where you can coast and maintain an under the radar existence.

    Cons

    Financially shaky
    No hesitancy in firing people; somewhat brutal in that respect
    Could be better about disciplining problem managers - they are more concerned about performance here, sometimes don't care enough about employee morale or satisfaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Historical hires are fired too readily whenever they bring in a new management team, and then a few years later that management team is thrown out and the whole process begins again. Maybe it would be good to question new management who wants to come in and fire everyone and bring in their own people.

    Former Employee - Associate Product Manager in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Associate Product Manager in New York, NY

    I worked at Revlon

    Pros

    - Cross functional teams are generally strong
    - Ability to work on high visibility campaigns
    - Hours are reasonable with people out the door by 6-7PM (no wknds)

    Cons

    - Culture is very hierarchical
    - Marketing work is reporting and execution heavy
    - Behind the curve on using latest tools to market to consumers such as social media

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Management is very finance focused and they need more marketing or sales focus at the top to set the proper direction of the company
    - Empower the Marketing department with resources to know more about the consumer in order to aid the development of new products and to use marketing tools more effectively

    Pros

    Working with consumer products, employees are valued, always work to be done, and there are many types of projects and products to work with.

    Cons

    Not a great location, little room to move up, company money is mostly tied up in marketing, little capital for manufacturing, but no discounts/free products for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Problems escalate when the solutions are band-aids, instead of preventing them from happening in the first place.
