I worked at Avon Products full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

- Global projects, global partners
- You can actually make a difference
- Opportunity to support many different departments
- Senior management is generally open to new ideas
- Very flexible work hours; great work/life balance

Cons

- Although the company is often open to new ideas, most new ideas are ultimately shut down
- Associates work until they retire; top talent eventually moves on. Associates with questionable talent and questionable values tend to linger.
- Creative Direction is often approved and led by associates with a sales background or that happened to stay with the company for decades.

    I worked at Avon Products full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Early on there was a great sense of camaraderie and teamwork that led to some terrific lifelong friendships.

    Cons

    More recently, the constant revolving door, lack of effective and managed processes, inability to make decisions and many levels in decision-making process, unbelievable amount of change and rework made it an awful place to work. Not to mention from the Rep and consumer perspective it's an awful proposition--lousy order fulfillment rates, huge Rep turnover

    Advice to Management

    They're too far gone
