Wants change, but won't change

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at Prestige Brands full-time for more than a year

ProsGood pay, decent hours, lots of insight into everything that's going on. You work closely with people.

ConsUnfortunately, that's all there is. This can be a pretty cutthroat environment; as in if you put something together for someone else and you're not there to defend your work, you get "tossed under the bus" so to speak. There's a lack of ownership, especially when presenting to senior leadership. There's also a layer of fear in the culture, that at any moment, you could be fired. I have seen people let go because they couldn't handle the work load, even after asking for help.

Advice to Senior ManagementI know it's a culture of leaders and change, but in order for change and leadership to occur, the management team needs to back off. Empower employees to do what they know best. I get it that there are certain priorities that need to be met, but taking away their ability to get the job done, takes away from the sense of being a leader or ownership.
Individual groups need to stop being protected and allow open and honest dialogue instead of constantly running to senior leadership to complain.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Demanding environment, limited resources, high expectations, little management understanding or compassion.

I have been working at Prestige Brands

ProsIf you are passionate about OTC products, the business philosophy could be compelling. The company is fairly enterprenuial. Core principles include: Trust, Leadership and Change.

ConsThere is very little infrastructure. The culture is extremely fractious. New people have created a much more demanding culture. There is very little help and expectations are high. Poor work life balance with very little appreciation from management. The environment is such that people are very quick to point out mistakes, but very unhelpful when it comes to identifying solutions. Highly critical environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to show that you actually show a vested interest in the development of your employees. Be supportive rather than critical of your employees. Morale is low and you do very little to support your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
