    I have been working at Helen of Troy full-time

    Pros

    Good co-workers, very nice building.

    Cons

    Outrageously disproportionate upper management's salaries (publicly disclosed as per SEC).
    IT department (although there are a few good elements) is sadly retrogressive, dragging the company back to the 70's and overloading employees due to inefficiencies that could be easily avoided with willingness. Some influential mid-manager seem to have a very serious case of Inferiority Complex and great skills to tease good employees. Sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No worthy.
