    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 Management

    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.

  3. Fast-paced, high-learning environment

    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

    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 Management

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

  6. Changes are very radical

    Pros

    Vacation time, Personal Leave, Floating Holidays. Major Holidays and the day before/day after are paid. If offices were open before holidays we were able to leave early.

    Cons

    Communication within departments are horrible. Beyond that I have really nothing negative to state. Had great opportunities and allowed for lots of growth.

  8. Very negative, unsupportive culture where colleagues and senior management talk about you rather than to you

    Pros

    Nice brand, some good high performing colleagues, flexi-time

    Cons

    Performance review process introduced but simply a tick-box exercise created then not reviewed again until year end - Not really a performance development/management tool, under-hand management style. Focussed on the negative and the bad. Poor leadership. A claimed no-blame culture which is more about avoiding accountability/responsibility and hence very little can be learned when things do go wrong. I've read this somewhere else but it's true at Revlon too..."The company revolves around who you know rather than what you know".

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest, say what you do and do what you say

    Pros

    great employes and co-workers, every other Friday off but you end up working on those fridays most of the tim

    Cons

    employees are overworked and underpaid, management rules by using fear tactics, no room for growth, long hours, no work life-balance, no bonus, no incentive for performance, rigid schedule - no flexibility,

  11. An internship at Revlon was an incredible experience to have at such a crucial deciding point in my life.

    Pros

    Intelligent, fun, collaborative, and communicative people made this experience hugely informative and exciting for me.
    I was able to sit in on meetings that helped me see how the company, and my department, ran and what to expect if I ever have a position at the company. Many leaders took an interest in learning about what I do in school, and what I wanted to do in my career, and shared their experiences.

    Cons

    There was, as in all internships, some "busy work".
    Didn't feel comfortable voicing my desire to go to more meetings and see more creative processes until almost the end of my internship.
    My cube was quite a distance from most of the people I was doing work for, which was slightly uncomfortable especially at the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Make more time at the beginning of an internship to let interns shadow you, attend meetings, etc. There could have been a better plan in place instead of bouncing interns (or in my experience at least) from person to person asking if they had projects or to explain certain things.
