    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

    Pros

    Enjoy the people at the bottom

    Cons

    Total mess of a company. No communication, empowerment, or trust. Top-down decision-making with leadership completely out of touch with the day to day. Integration with Elizabeth Arden has been poorly executed, with most employees not knowing what their new job responsibilities are. No culture of developing or investing in employees; not even allowed to expense dinner or take a cab home when working until midnight. Unrealistic expectations for the salary. No confidence that management even knows how to make the brands relevant to consumers. No strategy or planning results in constant scrambling without investment in the resources needed to make smart decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together! Treat employees like people. Set realistic expectations or properly resource teams to carry out the work. Care about the culture and morale.

    Pros

    Nothing. The ny location has a nice view but it's at the bottom of Manhattan. Long commute from anywhere and they don't pay enough for you to live nearby

    Cons

    Keep employees in the dark. Pay is not comparable to other NYC companies and benefits are minimal. Forget it if your a woman in a certain department. Only men get promoted to vp even with less experience/ talent. Majority of vp and above are men and it's who you know. And they talk down to the women. Very disrespectful. People are MISERABLE and turnover high.

    Advice to Management

    Go away. The place needs an entire overhaul and attitude change. Get with the 21st century.

    I've worked for Revlon for over 20 years, and I consider myself to be a valued employee!

    Not as many incentives as there were 10 yes previous!
    But I enjoy my work and my job!

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice to have more weekly hours as we had in the past!
