    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Helen of Troy full-time

    Pros

    OXO's growth and profitability have made this a fun company to work for. The people are great. Smart, talented, and friendly. The office culture is very open, the majority of the staff are young up and coming professionals who are getting great experience designing, managing, and launching new products with high margin. A great experience.

    Cons

    Not too many cons here. The compensation is fair but the organization is fairly flat. So not too much upside for promotion if you come in as a mid-level team member.

    Advice to Management

    OXO is a fantastic company. But sometimes a top performer may go unnoticed if their personality isn't congruent with the culture.

    I have been working at Helen of Troy full-time

    Pros

    OXO is a very creative place to work with a great work/life balance. The people at OXO are hard working and great to work with.

    Cons

    I've worked in product development for a few years and in the past 1 to 2 years there have been many changes, but not all good. The workplace has always been very flat and continues to be that way. Senior management micromanages and because they have been working for OXO for many years, this doesn't seem likely to change. The company culture has changed a lot. With many new employees, it has become more corporate with...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they continuously express their dissatisfaction on how the company has changed. We are asked opinions often but they never seem to be addressed.

    I have been working at Helen of Troy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Helen of Troy is a great company to work at! The brands are great and company culture is fun and relaxed. There are lots of people with great experience that have worked at P&G, Gillette, and other big companies which makes it great if you are a young professional as you can learn a whole lot. There is a lot of cross-functional work, which allows you to learn about different aspects of the business.

    Cons

    Location of the Marlborough office is far from the main city (Boston)

    Advice to Management

    Continue offering training opportunities and provide career advancement opportunities so that employees have a clear idea of what they can be working towards.
