I have been working at Revlon

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 ManagementAdvice

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

Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great Autonomy, They really let you utilize your skills to be sucessful.

    Cons

    Sometimes a disconnect between Marketing and retail ops and sales. This has led to some big failures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership works hard and many time they work with the hands tied due to a limited budget.

    I have been working at Revlon

    Pros

    - Good intentions and willingness to try.
    - High levels of involvement
    - Small with ability to get your arms around the whole business

    Cons

    - Inward looking
    - Limited ambtion and unrealistic of what it takes to win
    - highly centralised with sr. mgt making all decisions without being fully in touch with market place realities
    - very arbitrary with one restructuring every 5-6 months. Rational for these never fully explained or beleived

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Growth is hard - Doing same things that have been done in the past and expecting differnt outcomes is not sensible.
    - Empower people - If you dont take the decisions you are never going to have your skin in the game.
    - Have some stability in the business - no more changing strategies, structure or ppl.
