    Pros

    Good salary that's about it, easy parking, pretty office clean bathrooms.
    Benefits are okay, holidays are more than most Florida companies dish out

    Cons

    Horrible CEO that appears for half a year and mistreats employees by slamming doors in their faces literally he slams doors in your face
    Directors and evps mistreat and talk down to staff
    It's Cuban run if you aren't Cuban you are talked about behind your back in Spanish
    The company sells garbage cologne from the 1980s which no one will buy, very stressful failing environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to treat employees with some decent courtesy

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

    Pros

    90% off services, Good shopping and eating in the area, and The name will take you far.

    Cons

    You will not move up no matter how hard you work. Some ladies have been there 15 years plus with no raise, so learn what you can build a clientele and move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are working there behinds to the bone. To be a high end spa you lack the caring affection, and understanding Mrs. Arden built her empire on. Yes people on the out side see you as a company of class but you employees know the truth. Maybe you should work on that.

    Pros

    The product is nice. The early Friday hours are a plus as well.

    Cons

    The management team is struggling to understand the needs of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more ownership and responsibility to the employees. Less micro management , more responsibility will allow for newer ideas and opportunities to get the business's back on track.

    Pros

    Very fun environment to work in, very stylish and hip. Compensation is on the lower end for entry level jobs but an opportunity for upward mobility.

    Cons

    Management is uninvolved with the day-to-day operations, the company discriminates based on ethnicity. Need to take on a lot of responsibility and pick up the slack from other employees, very often in higher positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to redefine the organization
