    Used to be great place to work, but lots of changes over the past few years have made for low morale.

    I have been working at Energizer Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Employees have the flexibility to work from home at times
    Management has open door policy
    Salaries are at or above market

    Cons

    Recent emphasis on cost cutting and growth of stock price, less concern for value of employees, resulting on loss of good talent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some way to increase employee engagement, convince employees that the matter and the company is a good place to work

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary and paid time off offering. Flexible work hours and telecommuting are offered if your manager is okay with it.

    Cons

    Total focus on shareholder value and none on employee well-being. Since beginning a restructure/downsizing in 2012, there has been constant change, and the company is splitting on 7/1 so the change continues. Very little stability. Upper management has their head in the clouds and doesn't offer transparency to employees

    Pros

    Easier work load plenty of resources. Flexible schedule. Great people. Great products. Good processes in place. Good pay.

    Cons

    Number one focus is the shareholders. No room for growth. Limited opportunities to be a leader. No investment in their employees. One way of doing things, not an embrace change culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your number one asset, the people.

    Pros

    There is a very flexible schedule and they offer the ability to work from home one day a week. The people here are very friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The company is splitting into two separate companies so moral is low as we do not know if we will have jobs going forward. They have also cut many of the benefits that we used to have, which were definitely perks. Also pay seems to be below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer compensation that makes Energizer stand out from any other businesses. Work loads are at max capacity, and this brings down moral.

    Pros

    Work/Life balance and accommodations are great for those with families or in case of emergency.
    The people are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. "culture" is down the tubes.
    The major products are declining categories and they're battening down the hatches. Upward movement is rare, as they favor lateral transitions, but both require heavy politicking and self-promotion.
    Rewards and lack thereof come largely from perception vs performance

    Pros

    Really great people. Passionate folks that want to see the company succeed.

    Cons

    Have given up on winning. Restructures and cuts are now too regular to ever settle in and have fun. Still a good old boy (white boy) company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to win or sell and let someone else try. Stop sucking the company dry for your own benefit.

    Pros

    One or two people in middle management that actually have common sense- upper management is extremely out of touch/ delusional.

    Cons

    No stability- after major restructuring and layoffs two years ago, they are splitting the company. This comes right after publicly swearing they will never break up the company.

    No direction & leadership, no concern for employees, and no real solutions to create opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice to give since they wouldn't even listen.
