    Former Employee - District Sales Manager in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at Avon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    *Flexible schedule
    *Building relationships with the representatives
    *Decent benefits package
    *Free products and product discounts
    *Continued training
    *Great culture

    Cons

    *Ridiculous quotas and expectations
    *Unfortunately leadership aren't patient enough to allow time for changes to catch on
    *Compensation model for representatives needs to be overhauled so they can earn more
    *Morale became quite low with so many aggressive changes
    *Instability within the company had employees walking on egg shells and didn't create a conducive environment for many to flourish

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your representatives and field staff and inquire of them before making changes that simply do not work in the field. The 2 week ordering schedule is beyond archaic! Customers should be able to order anytime and receive their orders if you want to compete in today's market.
