Work work work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsFlat organization, summer and holiday hours, small teams so it is easier to know who people are and what they do.

ConsVery lean organization - there's always too much work to be done and permanently short on people to do it. Work-life balance is heavily weighted towards work. Decision-making only at the top levels (VP and such), the rest is about getting someone else's decision implemented.

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

Your success depends on who you work for or who you know

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

I worked at Revlon full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSalary, benefits, good location, summer Fridays

ConsToo many approvals needed for a decision to be made, a lot of bureaucracy, it's not what you know it's who you know, no career growth opportunities, no discount or perks

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow others a hand in decision making, there is too much dependency on the approval process. Effectively develop a plan for grooming your employees, offer computer training to enhance skills

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

Long history of decline - hope it's improved since I've left, as they have great brands.

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

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

ProsBeauty category is a fun space, when you get to spend time on the brand, marketing and new product innovation. There are some great individual people there, if you look.

ConsWhile I was there, it seemed management would always operate with tied hands, answering to majority shareholder who lacks ability to manage the company. We spent too much time on non-value added tasks, nothing to do with marketing, brands, or consumer - e.g. reformatting spreadsheets based on who's in charge that day.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring in experienced brand marketers with success running and turning around businesses - and let them do what they do best. Hold on to the best talent by keeping them happy and creating a positive, open culture.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Sinking ship

Package Designer (Former Employee)

I worked at Revlon

ProsGood name to have on resume. May lead to better position in other personal care companies.

ConsSince 2007 there were layoffs to try to recover management's mistakes. They never seemed to be able to make money, so they keep on cutting people. The company is a shell of the former cosmetic manufacturer it was in the late 80's and early 90's. A lot of talented people were let go and some old timers that should have been, are still there. The atmosphere has been gloomy for at least the last three years. It can only get better if the company is bought out by someone who has better business sense in the industry.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry new blood at levels. The old ways of doing business isn't working.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It's all about who you know

Chemist (Current Employee)

I have been working at Revlon

ProsThey have good benefits for their employees compared with other companies in the same industry. Also, they offer some small company attitude to the larger business.

ConsThe company revolves around who you know rather then what you know. Their company training policy doesn't exist and there is a lack of motivation in a good deal of employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementMove into the 21st century, and reward good work rather then good looks. Innovation is something to be proud of, rather then looked down at.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
