    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.

    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.

    Great People Good Company

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth and advancement, fair compensation package, interesting and varied job responsibilities, great brand presence and pride of the staff in the Revlon Brand and its history

    Cons

    Work/Life balance needs to be improved in some depts, Sr. Management tends to initiate too many new company initiatives at one time, resulting in a heavier workload for the staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To prioritize projects and to coach your staff through them. Work with staff to ensure that work/life balance is throughout the company

    Revlon is a great company where hard work, collaboration and eagerness to challenge the status quo are rewarded!

    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.

    Former Employee - Finance Manager in New York, NY (US)

    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)

    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.
