    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time

    Pros

    Management is very flexible and understanding. Perks of casual Fridays and make your own hours. Work from home 1 day a week if wanted.

    Cons

    Lack of direction and cohesiveness in the office. Lack of team environment. Training could be better and take time on issues that come up. More of a put out the fire now and we will explain later...if there is time later.

    Advice to Management

    Build a strong culture where people enjoy spending time together.

    Pros

    Big company with small company feel. Opportunity to get involved in many aspects of the business without the major functional silos typical of many companies.

    Cons

    Business continues to struggle on overall strategy development and then supporting execution plan. Lots of turnover in management as result, with new execution strategies each year.

    Pros

    If you've been here for a while, you get to know a lot of good people.

    Cons

    Company is top heavy with management. When we have to work Sunday, quite often those hours must be lost somewhere during the week to avoid OT. Back when I first started, There was no problem with OT. There was also very few managers at this location. Now if someone gets even 15 minutes, you are told to leave.

    Advice to Management

    If the company is going to force people to work Sunday, at least let them keep the money they made for it. It's bad enough to have to come in, but to have to lose those hours by the end of the week is just wrong.

    I worked at Elizabeth Arden full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great employees., fabulous brand., intriguing history., upscale and wonderful product lines. 1/2 day Fridays year round!!

    Cons

    Terrible upper management -empty suits from J & J. Finger pointers. They push out long term employees for their own soldiers. They have taken a creative marketing driven company and made it operations driven.

    Advice to Management

    Be available., constructive., nurturing.,team oriented.. Stop finger pointing. This is prestige mentality - not mass market. Make time to create and think outside the box. Read the history of EA and understand where the co came from - if you don't know the past you can't possible understand its future!

    Pros

    Good work / life balance, decent pay and employee discounts, summer Fridays

    Cons

    Culture of blame, incapable senior management team that has failed many times to steer the company in the right direction, lack of communication from senior management- which has led to a culture that perpetuates anxiety and rumors- no training opportunities, limited opportunities for growth, company constantly trying to meet numbers by inflating last min shipments before fiscal closes

    Advice to Management

    Define a clear strategy, stick to it, communicate it clearly to all employees

    Pros

    Elizabeth Arden has great product. There is some flexibility in your schedule, except for holidays. The salary was decent.

    Cons

    No work/life balance at all. If I broke down the salary based on how many hours were expected, the pay would be terrible. They expect miracles, but do not provide the tools necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people. They are your greatest asset.
