    Pros

    Coworkers are all great. Paychecks always show up.

    Cons

    New private ownership is purely focused on the bottom dollar. Its no longer a company, just another one of their investments to make THEM a quick buck.

    Advice to Management

    Without your hourly workforce you have nothing. All those executives that make the big bucks play much less of a role than your hourly labor force.

    I worked at Avon Products full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Love the products and people. Enjoyed my time with the company - best job so far in my 20+ year career. Good life/work balance. Challenging work.

    Cons

    Service model needs changes - project has been in the works for years. Company continues to struggle in spite of the efforts of a lot of great people. Company continues to shed people/payroll while attempting to correct its course. Much of the spirit & energy of the company has been drained. Loved the company -- it's difficult to see this happen.

    I have been working at Avon Products full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent Pay. Lots of paid time off. Pretty good benefits. Most of the time, bosses don't micro manage employees. Good co-workers, so long as you stick to the right ones, instead of jerks

    Cons

    Overbearing bosses, make rude distasteful remarks. Definitley a good ol' boys kind of place. Fairly sexist environment. A lot of bosses are engineers, and think only engineers are worthy of managing the place, over even people who study "gasp", business management.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. Let employees do their jobs. Most of them work very hard, and do a good job of it.

    Pros

    Enjoyed my time there until the end

    I worked at Avon Products full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some best reasons to work at Avon are that the co-workers are nice, but stay away from MGMT - oh nevermind they would never associate themselves with their workers.

    Cons

    The pay is not where it should be if you are a long time employee, they treat you horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the game and treat everyone the same!
