    I worked at Elizabeth Arden as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Open work environment, lots of collaboration, rebranding process was helpful and fun to be a part of

    Cons

    Some miscommunication among upper management. My boss for the internship was not helpful and did not take the time to teach me. Instead, she did everything for herself and left me bored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign interns specific long term projects instead of smaller tasks.

    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Modern tooling: workforce amiable, but their A to Z enterprise process, which include proper training and orientation is forty years past.

    Cons

    " Egos, and Department management has rather inflated ones. Front line supervisors are good.
    " Tooling is modern, product is somewhat in demand, Directors are full of themselves.
    * But EA is a source for income and most companies have their challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your eyes off your offices, dream of what can be. A streamlined, "Lean" pick and output.

    I worked at Elizabeth Arden

    Pros

    Great environment to work if you like learning.

    Cons

    Training of new hires is lacking.
    Politics seems to be getting in the way.
    Only care about the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the original roots and watch the politics.
