    Pros

    Top of the line facilities
    Consistent new and repeat customers
    Great locations
    Manger was wonderful

    Cons

    Lack of flexibility some times
    Think that all therapists will perform exactly the same with a client when every therapist is different. The idea is good in theory but unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take care of your employees. Happy employees make clients happy.

    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

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect. You have to wait a year for your stock to become vested.

    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. :)

    Pros

    Arden, as a company, is like a family. For the most part, when you come to Arden, you have a home.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication
