    I worked at Elizabeth Arden part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Deeply discounted services
    discounts on products
    flexible schedule
    Intensive training

    Cons

    management is unreliable
    clear company favoritism
    Schedule sometimes came out just a couple of days before the week was set to start
    Moving up in the company has nothing to do with Talent but everything to do with who you know, they would rather hire their friends rather than promote from within

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is, if you will be asking your team to do more work outside of their job duties, you need to pay them.

    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have a great experience working with Elizabeth Arden because , they really have a good professional people heading the company

    Cons

    For some reason I haven't get any raise for the last four years

    Advice to Management

    We need more tools and gift with purchases, to achieve the goals


  4. "Overwork"

    Pros

    Day goes by fast, with lots of work not enough people

    Cons

    10-14 hour days, no time for home life. Lack of appreciation for hard work, expect more work. Bullies in senior level mgmt. I've heard one senior leader tell an employee that he should be working as a sheep herder. Also heard senior leader tell a working mother to find another way for her children to be picked up at 6:30 pm daycare.

    Advice to Management

    Respect!

    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexible work environment, great products

    Cons

    company is very much like a click, either you are in or out

    Advice to Management

    Management really should look at individual performance, not keep employees who they like just because they are in the click. Several hard working people displaced due to not being in the right group, we are not in High School

    I worked at Elizabeth Arden full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    interview done in a neutral area

    Cons

    inability to ask specific reasons for termination to manager

    Advice to Management

    mentor your employees rather than leave then to fail.

    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Seeing people that I've worked with for years go from temporary jobs to permanent jobs.

    Cons

    Seeing people who just became permanent get jobs over people who have been there longer & some who where already doing those higher paying jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Won't do any good. From what I've noticed, if it wasn't "their idea" it's not gonna happen. Now you might see shades of what you said years later. All you can do is just think to yourself, wow now you do that.

    Pros

    A place to go to get some experience.

    Cons

    Poor management of people and projects. They try to do too much with too little so expect long hours in a noisy office.

    Advice to Management

    Start placing the customer and products first, not the dollar.

    I worked at Elizabeth Arden full-time

    Pros

    Hours and holiday schedule are perks.

    Cons

    Toxic atmosphere. Open office environment. No forward thinking, just reacting to achieving sales goals for current period with no consideration to the effect on future sales.

    Advice to Management

    Be in touch more with the employees who make the company tick, and more than a random town hall meeting. Plan for the future and stick to the plan - don't rearrange launches on items to get the bump in sales now.

    Pros

    Great benefits, you can learn a lot about business here.

    Cons

    No home work life balance. No respect for personal time. 15 hour days even when 9 months pregnant. Not a good company for people with families. There is not a lot of room for advancement for field employees. Company is growing but at the detriment to their loyal employees.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and their personal time.
