    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    great product and great marketing

    Cons

    senior management detached and unfocused. Very political organization. Don't expect to get ahead based on ability, talent or hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. You are getting rid of the people that were dedicated and have some talent and keeping those that tell you what you want to hear. Revlon used to be well regarded, but that is no longer the case.

  6.  

    Fast-paced, high-learning environment

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    * High profile company with leading brands that are (arguably) quite glamorous.
    * Excellent learning environment, with a culture that encourages risk-taking and is not too process-driven/encumbered;
    * Exposure to all facets of the business--operations, marketing, sales--no matter what your role is;

    Cons

    * the nature of the industry means very long planning lead times and continual promotional development (which I suspect is a good thing, but sometimes can be stressful since the pace is so quick.)
    * very cut throat industry where share points are jockeyed around
    * depending on your level, politics can exist
    * high brand spend can sometimes come at the expense of profitability. Which means cuts in personnel, plants, restructuring, have been many in the past 5-8 years.

    • Comp & Benefits

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Unit Manager
    Former Employee - Unit Manager

    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.
