    I have been working at Avon Products part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can work your own hours and at your own pace. Sells as many avon products as you want. Be creative through advertising your avon business through social media or face to face to generate sells. You can also host a fundraiser, if you work hard you can reach your life long goals.

    Cons

    The downside is when customers don't buy from you, you loose sells. The more you sell the more money and credit you will receive, the less sells you make or no sell you don't make money.

    Pros

    Work and life balance can be good. Co-workers are generally friendly and good people.

    Cons

    Management is ruining certain departments by leading without direction, communication or knowledge. Employee morale is low. Avon is not a good place to work at. Hopeful that will change.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management must be held accountable and should be rated and reviewed by their subordinates. Avon is currently filled with Upper Management that lack ability to drive results and inspire people.
