    Early experience good, but now all decisions made at very senior level

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood interaction with people, high energy levels and enthusiasm

    ConsHigh staff turnover, frantic pace at times, disempowerment

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen and engage with your employees to increase your chances of getting stability within the company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    would look elsewhere if you want a company that will appreciate your hard work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Prosgreat product and great marketing

    Conssenior management detached and unfocused. Very political organization. Don't expect to get ahead based on ability, talent or hard work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up. You are getting rid of the people that were dedicated and have some talent and keeping those that tell you what you want to hear. Revlon used to be well regarded, but that is no longer the case.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work work work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlat organization, summer and holiday hours, small teams so it is easier to know who people are and what they do.

    ConsVery lean organization - there's always too much work to be done and permanently short on people to do it. Work-life balance is heavily weighted towards work. Decision-making only at the top levels (VP and such), the rest is about getting someone else's decision implemented.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Your success depends on who you work for or who you know

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsSalary, benefits, good location, summer Fridays

    ConsToo many approvals needed for a decision to be made, a lot of bureaucracy, it's not what you know it's who you know, no career growth opportunities, no discount or perks

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow others a hand in decision making, there is too much dependency on the approval process. Effectively develop a plan for grooming your employees, offer computer training to enhance skills

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fast-paced, high-learning environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros* High profile company with leading brands that are (arguably) quite glamorous.
    * Excellent learning environment, with a culture that encourages risk-taking and is not too process-driven/encumbered;
    * Exposure to all facets of the business--operations, marketing, sales--no matter what your role is;

    Cons* the nature of the industry means very long planning lead times and continual promotional development (which I suspect is a good thing, but sometimes can be stressful since the pace is so quick.)
    * very cut throat industry where share points are jockeyed around
    * depending on your level, politics can exist
    * high brand spend can sometimes come at the expense of profitability. Which means cuts in personnel, plants, restructuring, have been many in the past 5-8 years.

    Collaboration, more like Isolation

    FPA Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    Pros- The pay is competitive compared to other similar firms.
    - They try to work to provide employees with a work-life balance.
    - International company with a strong brand.

    Cons- Most of the work provided is mundane and repetitive. There is no real innovation at the company. Known to be a status quo company.
    - Employee advancement is ridiculously limited. I met employees who have worked for the company for 35 years are still Senior Analyst and have not been provided the opportunity to move up within the firm.
    - The company has a strategy of working separately and then throwing the separate parts together to create the product. There is not much collaboration between the departments in the company to create more innovative ideas to help grow the company.
    - Honestly, I hear employees spend more time complaining about working for the company than actually doing work for the company. It's the saddest form of productivity ineffectiveness I have ever seen.
    - Management is good at selling the company and its positions, but the pitch is a lot stronger than what they have to actually offer. A company with a brand this strong cant crack the Fortune 1000, there is a reason for that. Not where you want to be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGroom and grow. Stop picking people from other companies that have no idea about your product and strategies. Also pay closer attention to your current employees and reevaluate their effectiveness and cut the fat. Get younger, and innovate. Stop being status quo. Don't believe me look at their financials for the last 5 years, always between 1.0-1.3B

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
