Great company!

ProsGood benefits and a lot of traveling. Company very reasonable on amount of money you can spend while traveling compared to other big corporations that book you on cheap hotels and make you flight on your own time.

ConsNothing is perfect. You have to wait a year for your stock to become vested.

I love the fact that the company vision has remained steady since it was founded.

Make-up Artist (Current Employee)
Birmingham, AL

I have been working at Elizabeth Arden

ProsThe 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementHonestly, 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. :)

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.
