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

Pros

Avon has a great group of people to work with! Most of us have remained close even after the building closure.

Cons

The shutting down of facilities and moving of manufacturing to China and Mexico. The scandal surrounding the old CEO. The inability to change the selling model to fit current buyer demands.

Advice to Management

It is incredibly frustrating to see upper management 'thriving' and receiving high salaries, bonuses, benefits while facilities are closing and being outsourced.

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

    Pros

    Great Company 10 yrs ago. To many bad decisions has taken the company from Great to Poor.

    Cons

    Changing their programs before they give them a chance to show results. They treat their employee's like numbers on a paper, no value for the people who have given them 10 plus years. High turnover of representatives, because they can't make money without training. Management expects 50 new representatives to be signed up every 2 weeks, with expectation the new reps sell $200 plus with their first order. Think Twice before you join this company!

    Advice to Management

    Jump the sinking ship

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

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial, wonderful people, gratifying work to help women and men achieve financial success, support a great cause - Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence.

    Cons

    Hard to advance in some departments, antiquated technology, in-ability to listen to employees suggestions to change

    Advice to Management

    Become more agile to address technology changes and trends in market place more quickly. Put some money and focus behind some core products instead of creating millions of one hit wonders. When I left, the old Avon atmosphere of being a friendly place to work where Avon really cared and listened was almost totally gone. That was one of the BEST reasons to work for Avon in the past. Now it has become just a churn of robotic employees.
