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

    Pros

    Nothing to write home about! Have to actually say a minimum of 20 words so there you have it.oops still need few more words. I think I now have more than 20 words!

    Cons

    Outdated business model, everything is being outsourced, management is clueless and they keep hiring very senior management from the outside with the most lucrative pay packages who keep running it to the ground. Ex CIO created a mess and cost the company hundreds of million of dollars with failing initiatives like SAP ( documented in the Wall Street journal and other news outlets), and new CIO that took over in 2014 is not much better. She had no business in running any business let alone one of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the rest of it as the current mgmt. is clueless and no indication that is about to change anytime soon

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work. Established product line and dedicated sales representatives.

    Cons

    BAD BAD management. Previous CEO (Andrea Jung) was in it for her own self .. sold out the company, made really bad decisions. Sent the company into the ground .. new CEO has no direct selling background. IT has very poor leadership .. new CIO cannot be trusted. Very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the roots of the company. Representative count, Order count, item count .. those are the key numbers.
