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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, modest benefits and competitive vacation time. Some talented people sprinkled throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Management changes every 2-3 years so the company doesn't improve sales or share (always changing strategy and changing staff). All of top management is male- no female voice in leadership- and all the strategic decisions about products are made by men who have never tried them. Company culture is very negative- sexual harassment and discrimination are tolerated, racial bias is rampant (only white men in leadership) and most employees have very low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that to succeed in beauty you need women leaders- they are the users of the category and understand what women need and want in a brand. Stop changing the executive team every 2-3 years and get focused. Bring in modern HR people who can implement programs to improve company culture and morale.

    I have been working at Revlon full-time

    Pros

    Pay is reasonable for office staff at least

    Cons

    Little co-ordination. What's important changes weekly. Outdated systems. Try to be agile and have conservative processes at the same time. Expect 60+ hours.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what you want to be and build systems and processes to support that.

    Pros

    I really can't think of any other than the ideal of the product they sold.

    Cons

    Terrible management, no real training, a bunch of mean women who back-stab to get ahead in business. It was honestly the worst working experience of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look in the mirror and evaluate your teams on merit. Stop the mean girl behavior and make a plan and keep going.

    I worked at Revlon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's very easy work- not a positive for me but I know for a lot of others.

    Cons

    Backstabbing, jealousy, minimal management involvement, no reliablilty engineering, no continuous improvement, fixing things with tape and "mole skin" is highly encouraged. Any efforts to improve equipment get ridiculed and laughed at, then someone else implements them a few months later and takes credit for it. Only people who advance there are relatives of other higher level employees. Production scheduling and poor coordination between production and maintenance result in machines and equipment being neglected- and when there is machine downtime there is no coordination at any level about process improvement or even basic upkeep beyond generic and minimal preventive maintenance work orders.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding backstabbers. Stop hiring your cousins. Have any involvement with any shift besides first. Communicate with maintenance about the plan for the department and/or individual machines. Is the plan to run this machine into the dirt because it's not worth upgrading or even fixing beyond basics? Are we purposely not caring about this or that machine because they're being removed soon or aren't fast/efficient/important enough anymore? Communicate (because there is NONE) so we understand what the goals and plans are- what the priorities are even.
