    I have been working at Edgewell Personal Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The organization is changing and growing (just purchased Jack Black). The corporate culture is getting better and people care about the success of the organization. There are set back from time to time, yet that is business. Solid pay scales, good benefits, great work life balance and product at high discount.

    Cons

    There are not very many cons. Having two separate corporate offices might be a little strange (MO and CT).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate to the employees and ensure that change management is done in a far and honest way.

    Pros

    Company trying very hard in very competitive markets to maintain market share and grow the newer acquisition products. (which we are doing nicely)...Desire to promote from within when possible but to also bring in the best and brightest to supplement our great work force.

    Management really does care but needs to strengthen the business for the future.

    Cons

    Stressful times, consolidations of some management positions, some job eliminations, (mostly by not replacing people who may leave), but expect things will settle down in the next 6 months, so hang in there and see it through.

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to hold onto your best people.

    I have been working at Edgewell Personal Care full-time

    Pros

    There are advancement opportunities and some good benefits (insurance isn't the greatest). Lots of good people that work at my location. Overall not a bad place to work so long as you are a flexible person.

    Cons

    Poor culture that isn't being addressed. Some people with negative attitudes, but you get that everywhere! Lots of change. When that change is done have a second helping of change. Not all changes were/ are bad, but they definitely have an effect on morale.

    Pay structure is competitive in some areas and not so much in others...

    Advice to Management

    Address the cons.

    Great people, new management team who are dedicated to updating our business. Looking forward to online selling, and M&A opportunities. Jack Black and Bulldog have proven to be excellent purchases.

    In a state of change....definitely stressful, but needed. Very competitive categories, significant amount of Right Sizing, resulting in loss of jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Be a change agent, work hard and find ways to be relevant in what you do.
