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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Revlon full-time

    Pros

    Working with consumer products, employees are valued, always work to be done, and there are many types of projects and products to work with.

    Cons

    Not a great location, little room to move up, company money is mostly tied up in marketing, little capital for manufacturing, but no discounts/free products for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Problems escalate when the solutions are band-aids, instead of preventing them from happening in the first place.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, long time employees, vacation

    Cons

    Too many to list, I guess the main one would be decide on a strategy and stick with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out the path you want to go down and stop changing it midstream, too much swirl

    I have been working at Revlon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Benefits. 15 Vacation days, 40 hours of Paid leave, And 4 floating holidays is good for a manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Lousy pay. Most people with wife and children cannot live on the salary of my position. I mean 22,000 a year is barely living in this country

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People of my position should at least get paid a living wage, also most people view my position as a dead end position. there is no way to move up at the company.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.
