I have been working at Avon Products full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

products good, brochures are beautiful.

Cons

corporate values are talked about but not practiced

Advice to Management

There is nothing wrong with being the #1 direct seller with a MLM component (not the end all)

    I worked at Avon Products part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None I can remember other then being able to work from my home

    Cons

    - Poor upper management
    - 24/7 Work week
    - Bonuses dangled in front of the managers but impossible to obtain
    - Representatives very mean and would presonally attack
    - Was physically threatened by a representative and when reported to inside management, along with the legal department nothing was done
    - Harrassed by my Divisional Manager and a fellow male District Manager - I didnt file complaint because of know they would do nothing
    - Felt exposed to representatives because they could look up where I lived - not protected like a regular employee that work in the corporate offices
    - Fellow district managers very mean, cut throat and bunch of snakes
    - When redisticting was done my district was disolved and assigned to a new one where representatives, mostly the top leadership, made it their business to personally attack and destroy

    Advice to Management

    I am glad I left the company!!! It was the worst experince work wise I have ever had.

    Incredible philanthropic commitment to empower women around the world. Raises endless funds for breast cancer research, ending domestic violence, etc.
    Management listens, focused on employee satisfaction, and people are passionate about the brand and products.

    Cons

    Executives don't listen, have no vision forward, and continue to execute the same failing strategies.

    Advice to Management

    None.
