    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Modern tooling: workforce amiable, but their A to Z enterprise process, which include proper training and orientation is forty years past.

    Cons

    " Egos, and Department management has rather inflated ones. Front line supervisors are good.
    " Tooling is modern, product is somewhat in demand, Directors are full of themselves.
    * But EA is a source for income and most companies have their challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your eyes off your offices, dream of what can be. A streamlined, "Lean" pick and output.

    Elizabeth Arden was a good place to work but upper management is not getting the job done and the company is struggling.

    I worked at Elizabeth Arden full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay is fair and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Leadership is poor and company values are lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to ramp up sales force and be creative with marketing. Have heard that sales force is paid too well to strive for additional sales.

    Terrible executive team probably won't be able to turn the ship around - awful morale

    I have been working at Elizabeth Arden full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent work-life balance - company is supportive in that way. Freedom for some to work remotely; good discount on product, and nearly free "mystery box" every holiday season. Compensation fair.

    Cons

    Morale is awful - lots of backstabbing, though maybe that is normal. Recent shakeup in executive team (new CFO) may or may not help, as company performance continues to tumble. Wave of recent layoffs with more to come, but not addressing core issues. CEO out of touch, and exec team primarily interested in their own personal survival.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more town meetings where open discussion is truly encouraged and not just given lip service. Be more transparent in order to lessen the terrible rumor mill.

    Pros

    great job, great people to work with

    Cons

    company is not stable now, they might possibly be sold

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    corporate needs to spend more time in the field and change how they approach in store visits. There is a disconnect as to what is going on in the stores and what corporate perceives as to what the real marketing needs to be and what the needs of the consultants are. They are disconnected from what marketing really needs to be outside of NYC
