    Pros

    Training is great, they make sure you're really knowledgeable about your products.

    Discount is good on Arden products (60%)

    Products themselves are high quality.

    Cons

    Difficult to get support or contact sometimes from Area Managers

    Head Office staff seem to change quite frequently (moreso now since the Revlon takeover)

    Advice to Management

    Be easier to contact. Set clear goals for staff members and review when these are or are not met. Celebrate your employees' successes.

    Pros

    Good training
    Good product allocation
    Great staff shop and staff discount 50%

    Cons

    Bullying account manager, no interest from area manager. (Brent Cross counter)
    Stressful atmosphere at work.
    Lack of progress.
    Very old fashioned company with not a lot to offer.

    Advice to Management

    Please take some interest regarding your account managers actions. It is not normal for so many people to leave because of one person and not investigating it.

    Pros

    Very nice products and a put together uniform

    Cons

    You do not get gratis and the products are so expensive but they want you to wear them but they do not pay you well enough. It's hard when you work part time and you can't get the products. Every other counter alllll employees get gratis.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees products to use to be better brand embassadors. It's hard to sell when you are not wearing it

    Pros

    great people great products great heritage

    Cons

    management gets worse by the day ran a great company in to the ground not sure they can make it back

    Advice to Management

    hire and keep people that know what they are doing-not your friends and people with degrees that don't matter. don't layoff people the week before bonus payout-they earned their bonus and deserve it-bad enough you lay them off-stop being SLEEZY and not paying out bonuses due to your mismanagement while you walk away with millions

    I worked at Elizabeth Arden full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Summer Hours every Friday, Salary not bad, work from home, potential for growth depending on one's desire. Had one boss that was a great leader and helped the team out. Then there were those that wanted you out because you did not deserve to be working for them

    Cons

    Don't promote those that don't deserve it or do not have the experience. Should have pushed those out that were far too comfortable in their roles.
