    I have been working at Revlon part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Fun problem solving work days
    Independent jobs
    Drive time and milage stipends
    Work with management at accounts
    Ability to make sales while in accounts

    Cons

    Seasonal work
    Unreliable in terms of consistency
    When you get work it's full time, but the rest of the season is pretty sparse.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if we could have a little more consistency in the amount of work we receive.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Lower level employees are awesome to work with.

    Cons

    Management - top down push for processes that do not fulfill the needs of the business, harsh and sometimes demeaning to employees. High stress. No work life balance - you are expected to show up at 7/8am work until 6/7pm and then work more once you get home.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your employees that do that work every day. Treat your employees with respect and show them gratitude. Don't throw your employees under the bus for your mistakes.

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

    Pros

    Vacation time is good and traffic is minimal since it's in the middle of nowhere. Some of the worker bees are good people.

    Cons

    Management team is by far the worst I have ever experienced. Employees are treated like children, just added two more levels of management while the company continues to lose money and lay off employees that do the work.

    It is a backward organization that is being run into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves! Fire the entire management staff!

    I have been working at Revlon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Summer hours and decent pay

    Cons

    This place is incredibly toxic. It's run by a bunch of old women who have been there for 40 years. Upper management has no idea how to motivate a team, but are rather focused on what attire is being worn and how long you are going out for lunch. They do not care about the work that gets put in, but rather the appearance of work that gets put in. They do not like it if you get up from your desk and talk about anything non work related. It's as if you are always being watched. HR lady thinks she runs Revlon and is extremely rude and biased. She is only nice to upper management. No wonder the turnover is high. They might pay a decent salary but it's not worth it because there is no environment for growth and you are treated like crap!!

    Advice to Management

    Change your HR, MAKE YOUR EMPLOYEES HAPPY SO THEY STAY. Revlon is getting terrible press and prices are going up. ACCEPT CHANGE... ACCEPT NEW PEOPLE. THE CULTURE NEEDE A DRASTIC IMPROVEMENT.

    I have been working at Revlon full-time

    Pros

    • the company has an established name
    • if you are not qualified, tons of places to hide out
    • if you like circular discussion and running a hamster wheel - this is the place for you!

    Cons

    There is an hiring freeze for all positions.

    HIRING: Despite freeze, EVPs are hired seemingly weekly and CEO's direct reports is at ridiculous record high. One of these positions could fund 10-20 support positions. This is definitely a top morale killer and 'it is above my pay grade' is something until working here, i had only heard in mel gibson/lethal weapon — films but can be heard daily across functions.

    SPACE:
    with the integration of EA, it appears that Revlon could not procure more space. However, this does not halt the location integration — in an already tight space — by September 1 — over 100 people will be added or should i say crammed into the current floor planogram. Ivory tower glass offices remain as is.

    OPERATIONS: getting anything produced or executed is difficult and review process is painful ... too many cooks in the kitchen, most of whom can't cook — it becomes, death by a thousand paper cuts

    EXECUTION: from actual production to sell-in — the current revised processess' will fail this brand.

    Advice to Management

    a video saying we can do this, without addressing the growing concerns, is not effective. Especially NYC based employees not supported will backfire
