    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.

    I worked at Edgewell Personal Care full-time

    Pros

    Good work/life balance with good people working the day in day out.

    Cons

    New Management ....worth giving them a chance to work out some of the kinks.

    Advice to Management

    US customer base is very different from European customer base...please factor that into your structural decisions. Sales has a lot of good, hard-working and experienced individuals not being properly or fully utilized or led towards success. Know your people.

    I have been working at Edgewell Personal Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is reasonable and they allow casual dress. Coming from a super corporate environment, it’s a nice change to be allowed to wear jeans to work on days where you don’t have meetings.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs right now. Company is focused on cutting costs and tightening budgets. Senior leadership does not care about their people, they care about meeting their metrics. This company is probably a least a decade behind its competitors in terms of best practices and policies and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Here’s a crazy idea to save money, cut the company cell phone plan. Or cut international travel when we already have a European/Asian counterpart located there. All of this could help save jobs and probably wouldn’t need a consulting firm to tell you that.

    Pros

    Very family oriented. Good work environment. Good company to start with to gain experience.

    Cons

    Insurance isn't very good. Pay isn't very competitive. A lot of lay offs right now. Smaller locations don't have much room for advancement.

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

    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.
