Typical big company feel

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

I worked at Revlon full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat people, excellent chance to learn about the cosmetic industry. I was given many opportunities to advance during my time there.

ConsCan be "click-ish"! If you're not in the inner circle, you will not be recognized or commended for you work. Turn over rate is very high. Many come in and find out it's not what they expected.

Fast-paced, high-learning environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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.

Fair employer

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

I worked at Revlon

ProsMany long term employees who care about the business.
Opportunities are there if you work hard and are focused..

ConsThe market category is volatile; when the company prospers employees do; when the economy is flat, that is when changes are made. Basic business principals followed.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize your your biggest assets --- your employees

very rewarding, great place

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Revlon

ProsNice building if you are in NY
Professional employees, everybody works hard
Generally a good place to work,even for a short time

ConsNot a lot of emphasis on building personal relationships between employees, feels a little aloof- I did not see many employees go to lunch together.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmphasize building personal relationships
Provide free samples of make up to employees so that they would advertise it or rave about it to others.

Good place to work

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

I have been working at Revlon

ProsFun, creative industry in the middle of New York City. Really nice working environment with smart, nice people. Large advertising campaigns.

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