    An unprofessional company - simply due to lack of communication skills as cursing and screaming doesn't qualify.

    I worked at Revlon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Convenient office location and that is about the only pro I can assess.

    Cons

    Not a very ethical company to work for...!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take Management 101 course - this may help them lead/manage the company/teams in a more professional format.

    Pros

    great product and great marketing

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake 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.

    I worked at Revlon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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.

    I worked at Revlon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, good location, summer Fridays

    Cons

    Too 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 ManagementAdvice

    Allow 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

  9.  

    Fast-paced, high-learning environment

    I worked at Revlon full-time for more than 8 years

    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.
