    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

    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.

    I worked at Elizabeth Arden full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, high salaries, most managers are understanding to personal situations involving family responsibilities.

    Cons

    While the company carries an iconic brand, it is very difficult to move the products forward to be more trendy. "New" products are often already in the market from a competitor. Sales targets are highly unrealistic, but change is slow to adapt these systems and thought processes. Sometimes the atmosphere was just plain mean and some managers were notorious for yelling at employees and using bullying tactics.

    I worked at Elizabeth Arden full-time

    Pros

    It was a wonderful place to work. People are very friendly and really care about the Company doing well. You definitely drink the Kool-Aid. It has since been bought by Revlon but hopefully the spirit of the company continues.

    Cons

    The pay is ok - standard for the industry but less than you would make at bigger CPGs.

    Pros

    Promotes Family, fair benefits, good holidays

    Cons

    Office politics dictate a lot. You can be really valuable and do good work but if you don't mingle with the office politics you won't get far

    Advice to Management

    Promote employee growth with outside conferences and training
