    Pros

    great job, great people to work with

    Cons

    company is not stable now, they might possibly be sold

    Advice to Management

    corporate needs to spend more time in the field and change how they approach in store visits. There is a disconnect as to what is going on in the stores and what corporate perceives as to what the real marketing needs to be and what the needs of the consultants are. They are disconnected from what marketing really needs to be outside of NYC

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. I rarely work later than 5, which is amazing these days. To make it even better there are half day Fridays ALWAYS.

    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

    Cons

    No sense of company culture (happy hours or department dinners)

    Pros

    The products are amazing, and the company is sound! I'm in love with Prevage. I really believe in it. And Double Density Mascara is the best ever made.

    Cons

    The pay could be better, and advancement isn't always possible, but then again, no one ever really leaves the company once they start working for Arden.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, freelance artists aren't paid the same rate as other companies. Arden offers about 5 to 7 dollars less than other companies to artists. And I personally believe that if Arden would expand the freelance budget, it would create more excitement and interest in the brand. Everyone knows the skincares is second to none, but not as many see Arden as an artistry line, and that needs to change. Besides, the artists always sell the skincare anyway. :)
