    Pros

    Good benefits for District Managers, car, health, dental, 401K, discounts and bonus programs

    Cons

    Stress and pressure from Divisional Managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your Divisional Managers show respect to the District Managers. Happy manager will be better employees. Go back to the basics by rewarding the top sale people not the top recruiters. The president club members is what has keep the compang going for so many years.

    I worked at Avon Products full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Gratifying to meet representatives whose lives has changed because of Avon (earn a living to provide a better life for their families i.e. get out of poverty, go to college, start their own business)
    - philanthropic company
    - rich history - almost every grown woman/man can remember Avon in their childhood

    Cons

    Senior Management (last 5 years):
    - frequently not in tune to who their representatives are and what their customers may want
    - have poor communication with their staff
    - introduce strategies that change constantly and never allowed to develop or see results. Change is good, but constant change is not healthy, very scattered and damaging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask, listen and refer to your experienced staff who may know their business better
