    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time

    Pros

    Good team dynamic within all departments, company lunch activities, free samples once in a while

    Cons

    I'm disappointed in the company for allowing unprofessional behavior to be tolerated in ecomm dept (i.e. yelling, screaming, bullying on a ridiculous/crazy level especially by the head of the department who has years of experience). Shame on Elizabeth Arden for allowing this negative & unprofessional treatment. I can also hear similar yelling in another department once in a while.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional
