Approves of CEO

I have been working at Avon Products full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent compentsation
Good benefits
nice collegues
opportunity to change someones life

Cons

long commute
long hours
lack of training for manager
presurre to do unethical behaviors from upper management

Advice to Management

I would recommend that management follow through with a strategy and listen to field managers on what is needed. Pay attention and support your managers in their training and in directions. If field manager was told to do something then the support should come from the upper management. Work/life balance is extremely difficult especially with long commute ( I spend 3-5hrs a day in car) to market plus 80% field time

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Avon Products full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The relationships you build with the representatives, company car, cell phone, etc.

    Cons

    Constant Threats of job loss since redistricting... fraudulent managers get praised while hard working honest ones are thrown under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the shady work being done by the ones that are making bonuses and getting the praise. Feeding of downline and making representatives order large amounts of product to meet an incentive or bonus and then they are told to return them. It's fake numbers for the district, the company and wall street.
