    Great colleagues, even given the tough environment. The company truly cares about it's employees. Everyone is driven for the purpose. Good work life balance.

    Pros

    Avon has a great work life balance. Here you will have the opportunity to do great work and manage important aspects of brand building on your own.

    Cons

    At Avon we talk to ourselves a bit too much and lose sight of the average consumer flipping through the brochure, confusing them with a vast array of products and benefits at different price points

    Advice to Management

    I always felt there was a lack of transparency here. Upper management needs to be more honest and direct with Avon employees.
