    Pros

    You can interact with all levels in the company and make an impact even at a lower level.

    Cons

    They are slow to promote their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Elizabeth 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.
