    I have been working at Revlon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are amazing and dedicated. The family atmosphere extends to old and new employees, and there is a sense that you are sincerely cared about. Opportunities are there for anyone who works hard, is intelligent, welcomes change and can collaborate across teams.

    Cons

    If you don't like change, Revlon is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top Down communication since Professional Division acquisition has been very poor. Employees fill vacuum with supposition and gossip. More transparency needed across entire company.

    I worked at Revlon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Summer Hours and Holiday Hours really help with work-life balance
    The office was located just outside of Grand Central Station so was an easy commute for most and convenient for shopping and lunch
    They did offer a pension plan, though I am not sure if they still do
    Great discounts on cosmetics

    Cons

    Bonuses were not paid while I was there, I found this demotivating
    Frequent downsizing left the remaining employees concerned

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for people that care about the brand and the organization, not just their jobs.

    Former Employee - Graphic Design Intern in New York, NY (US)

    I worked at Revlon as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They are very organized. The supervisor of interns organized many events and invited us to podcast recordings, portfolio reviews, etc.

    Cons

    It's a large company, and as interns go, there's so many, that it's easy to get buried and go unnoticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience with Revlon was great.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Can 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.

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