    "Great learning experience"

    Pros

    The people here were generally very nice and very smart. They were happy to teach you whatever they knew The standards for job competency are high and you will be forced to develop excellent technical skills if you want to keep yours. The products are very nice and amazingly creative considering that they do not have alot of money to invest in the business. If you are not a hard worker you will be unhappy here; this is not a place where you can coast and maintain an under the radar existence.

    Cons

    Financially shaky
    No hesitancy in firing people; somewhat brutal in that respect
    Could be better about disciplining problem managers - they are more concerned about performance here, sometimes don't care enough about employee morale or satisfaction

    Advice to Management

    Historical hires are fired too readily whenever they bring in a new management team, and then a few years later that management team is thrown out and the whole process begins again. Maybe it would be good to question new management who wants to come in and fire everyone and bring in their own people.

    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

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

    Pros

    Summer Hours and Holiday Hours really help with work-life balance
    The office was located just outside of Grand Central Station so was an easy commute for most and convenient for shopping and lunch
    They did offer a pension plan, though I am not sure if they still do
    Great discounts on cosmetics

    Cons

    Bonuses were not paid while I was there, I found this demotivating
    Frequent downsizing left the remaining employees concerned

    Advice to Management

    Look for people that care about the brand and the organization, not just their jobs.

    Pros

    Great Benefits. 15 Vacation days, 40 hours of Paid leave, And 4 floating holidays is good for a manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Lousy pay. Most people with wife and children cannot live on the salary of my position. I mean 22,000 a year is barely living in this country

    Advice to Management

    People of my position should at least get paid a living wage, also most people view my position as a dead end position. there is no way to move up at the company.

    Pros

    Vacation time, Personal Leave, Floating Holidays. Major Holidays and the day before/day after are paid. If offices were open before holidays we were able to leave early.

    Cons

    Communication within departments are horrible. Beyond that I have really nothing negative to state. Had great opportunities and allowed for lots of growth.
