    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.

    I have been working at Revlon full-time for more than 3 years

    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 have been working at Revlon full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Groom 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

    Revlon needs to and must change their ways they treat the employees.

    I worked at Revlon

    Pros

    It's a job to go for right out of school when you do not have any work experence. But get out when you have a chance.

    Cons

    There is not any fairness. They dont consider any family matters as important. The pay raises are very, very low. If you get any at all. The benifits are average. It dont pay to be there long term. No room for advancement. Not a good place for some to make a career out of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up. Listen to your employees. Dont get rid of your valuable employees. You want to try and keep them as long as possible. They are the ones that make your business grow and prosper. To many people in management and not enough workers.
