    Pros

    Working with consumer products, employees are valued, always work to be done, and there are many types of projects and products to work with.

    Cons

    Not a great location, little room to move up, company money is mostly tied up in marketing, little capital for manufacturing, but no discounts/free products for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Problems escalate when the solutions are band-aids, instead of preventing them from happening in the first place.

    Pros

    Great Benefits. 15 Vacation days, 40 hours of Paid leave, And 4 floating holidays is good for a manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Lousy pay. Most people with wife and children cannot live on the salary of my position. I mean 22,000 a year is barely living in this country

    Advice to Management

    People of my position should at least get paid a living wage, also most people view my position as a dead end position. there is no way to move up at the company.

    Pros

    Benefits, long time employees, vacation

    Cons

    Too many to list, I guess the main one would be decide on a strategy and stick with it.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the path you want to go down and stop changing it midstream, too much swirl

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

  8. Very step by step, but you must have a lot of initiative to stand out.

    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 Management

    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.

  10. Revlon is a great company to learn the basics about business.
