Great Place to Work

Supply Chain (Current Employee)

Very friendly employees all around.

Manager is very helpful with reviews.

Raises happen every year unless the company is doing terrible.

Stamford office is amazing with a very bright environment

ConsNo sense of company culture (happy hours or department dinners)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Would not recommend

Retail Executive (Current Employee)

I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits, you can learn a lot about business here.

ConsNo home work life balance. No respect for personal time. 15 hour days even when 9 months pregnant. Not a good company for people with families. There is not a lot of room for advancement for field employees. Company is growing but at the detriment to their loyal employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementRespect your employees and their personal time.

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

Ok, but could be better.

Forklift Operator (Current Employee)
Roanoke, VA

I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSeeing people that I've worked with for years go from temporary jobs to permanent jobs.

ConsSeeing people who just became permanent get jobs over people who have been there longer & some who where already doing those higher paying jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementWon't do any good. From what I've noticed, if it wasn't "their idea" it's not gonna happen. Now you might see shades of what you said years later. All you can do is just think to yourself, wow now you do that.

Interesting

Retail Executive (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time for more than 5 years

Prosflexible work environment, great products

Conscompany is very much like a click, either you are in or out

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement really should look at individual performance, not keep employees who they like just because they are in the click. Several hard working people displaced due to not being in the right group, we are not in High School

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

Not as corporate considering its size

Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsYou can interact with all levels in the company and make an impact even at a lower level.

ConsThey are slow to promote their employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementElizabeth Arden needs to focus on promoting faster to keep its talent, rather than constantly hiring outside of the company. I also recommend giving more vacation and personal days so that employees don't burn out.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very disappointed

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at Elizabeth Arden

ProsBest reason to work for this company is that this company is well known for their skin products and they are very good.

ConsNo communication, a lot of gossip, they talk down to you when you do not make your goal, threats, cut your hours, very unprofessional environment, foul language by district manager.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to keep your employees you have to treat them like adults and human beings, have one on ones with your employees, best way to have great customer service it starts by making your employees happy so they can have that great positive attitude.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
