    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love my coworkwrs. My Ops manager is absolutely lovely. And this is the most I've been paid as a massage therapist in my 4 years of being a professional therapist.

    Cons

    No flexibility. Absolutely none. I barley see my friends or family. As a therapist you expect to have some say of when you work and your hours. Not here. And it will be the reason. I leave. Not even for school will they allow me to have flexibility in my schedule. Long 9-10 hours shifts. Lead is an amazing teacher but far to pushy and sometimes rude.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that your employees are humans. Have families and friends and social lives.

    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful people that are open and interested in building relationships with coworkers. Depending on your team you could have flexibility in your work schedule and work plan.

    Cons

    Heavy workload is mostly administrative versus strategic. Not much room for growth in sales career. Work does not change, always doing the same tasks month to month.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to how managers treat their direct reports. Look at results and skills versus time spent at the company when looking to fill open roles/promote employees.

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

    Pros

    The company has good products and the potential to do very well with the commission that they offer their employees.

    Cons

    This companu can br a very competitive and almost catty environment depending on the employees. The incentive pay and the environment tends to create a stressful working environment.

    Advice to Management

    It is good to encourage a healthy competitive environment. But be carefull not to create one that Pitts employees against eachother. Also upper management should give their employees a chance to costumer service the customers rather then ponce on the large sale for themselves.

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

    Pros

    Pretty reasonable work/life balance during the good/quiet times, compensation has always felt fair. Coworkers are generally good folks.

    Cons

    Declining numbers, lack of profitability and a stagnating culture are all big problems. Project work and peak seasons can get crazy. Incredible stress and very long hours with little understanding/awareness from management of the long term consequences on morale.

    Advice to Management

    Management must strive to identify the people, products, sites, processes, and systems that are beneficial to the company and helpful in the work environment - and then begin to dramatically change or jettison those that aren't. A top down change is in order.
