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

Pros

Good work/life balance if you are in the Rye office.

Cons

No long term strategy. The company is not sure how to really make the representative experience better globally. Employees have such poor management that they don't remember the purpose of the company.

Cronyism - Executives in positions based on friendship and not ability. Therefore departments are run ineffectively and very politically.

There is not an internal skill training program for employees. Therefore, most don't really know how to do the job. However, people work really hard to skill achieve objectives. No new job training + competitive objectives = poor execution.

Avon's cultures and values are not upheld by Senior leadership or HR. The company has huge problems with workplace bullying and does not address it.

Bullying examples include, but are not limited to: purposeful exclusion from team meetings/activities, consistently taking credit for your work, sabotaging your work, overloading you with work or taking away all of your work, purposely withholding information from you, and spreading false rumors and gossiping.

Advice to Management

Evaluate the VP and Executive Directors that have been at Avon for a long time. A few really need to leave.

    Pros

    business model is not workable anymore, so the company is not successful anymore

    Stop relying and centralizing the business on Avon Representatives. Put products in stores, bolster online retail, let Avon Representatives act as fashion experts and give them a % of online sales.
