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

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunity to earn fabulous trips and bonuses, strong peer support, widely recognizable brand. Opportunity to impact individuals lives. Fast paced and exciting new products ever two weeks.

    Cons

    Lacks work/life balance. Long hours are needed to meet goals and support your district effectively. Your DVM and upper management will eventually change and so will your work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Constant unspoken and spoken "threats" of job elimination are a distraction and demotivating. Be consistent in creating a positive work environment for your hardworking DSMs.
