Fast-paced, high-learning environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Revlon full-time for more than 8 years

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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

would look elsewhere if you want a company that will appreciate your hard work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Revlon full-time for more than 3 years

Prosgreat product and great marketing

Conssenior management detached and unfocused. Very political organization. Don't expect to get ahead based on ability, talent or hard work.

Advice to Senior ManagementWake 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

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

I worked at Revlon as an intern for less than a year

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementMy experience with Revlon was great.

Typical big company feel

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Revlon full-time for more than 10 years

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

ConsCan 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.

Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Revlon full-time for less than a year

ProsConvenient office location and that is about the only pro I can assess.

ConsNot a very ethical company to work for...!

Advice to Senior ManagementTake Management 101 course - this may help them lead/manage the company/teams in a more professional format.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
