I worked at Revlon full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Beauty category is a fun space, when you get to spend time on the brand, marketing and new product innovation. There are some great individual people there, if you look.

Cons

While I was there, it seemed management would always operate with tied hands, answering to majority shareholder who lacks ability to manage the company. We spent too much time on non-value added tasks, nothing to do with marketing, brands, or consumer - e.g. reformatting spreadsheets based on who's in charge that day.

Advice to Management

Bring in experienced brand marketers with success running and turning around businesses - and let them do what they do best. Hold on to the best talent by keeping them happy and creating a positive, open culture.

    Lean, flat organization with a collaborative environment that focuses on grooming its people

    Cons

    As with any company each personal experience is different and some employees may have individual downsides of working at the Company, but on the whole working at Revlon is an enjoyable experience.

    Pros

    Client based CPG Company
    Room for rotation if you are willing to play the corporate game. Opportunity to learn on the job with experienced mentors

    Cons

    Not quick to change ways at Revlon. Some great ideas are dismissed simply because of your position (presenting the idea) to senior management

    Advice to Management

    Best to be willing to rotate jobs/positions. Willingness to travel and possibly relocate will go a long way. For a major brand, Revlon is quite a small company
