    I worked at Revlon

    Pros

    Customer perception of the brand, good products, some great people and some supportive colleagues. Flexi-time is a good benefit, if you can fit the time-off in your schedule.

    Cons

    Very Inwardly focussed, very little training or investment in colleagues. Secretive and divisive culture. Extraordinarily high staff turnover. Arrogant, uncaring employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no point offering any advice to management as they are convinced they already know it all.

  5.  

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

    Former Employee - Intern in New York, NY (US)

    I worked at Revlon as an intern (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.

    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

    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.
