    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 Management

    They need to treat employees with some decent courtesy

    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 Management

    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.
