    Pros

    Revlon is great to work mainly because of the people. Everyone is nice, smart and fun. Depending on the brand, we run huge marketing campaigns. Also, it is a small company so everyone has visibility to senior management.

    Cons

    Revlon has had many years of financial difficulty due in part failed product launches and bad marketing campaigns. Because of this, senior management holds all of the marketing power and brand managers don't get to make decisions without higher approval.

    Advice to Management

    Alan Ennis has been a strong leader since taking the post of CEO. Employees like him and trust the decisions he makes.

    Pros

    Fun, creative industry in the middle of New York City. Really nice working environment with smart, nice people. Large advertising campaigns.

    Cons

    Revlon was in such a bad place financially, that they brought in finance people to straighten everything out. The financials have gotten so much better, but there are no marketing people at the top level. A brand-driven company should probably have some marketing input at the highest level...

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is getting better all the time. As soon as the leaders trust what the workers are doing, the products will do even better.
