    I have been working at Helen of Troy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I have worked many places and am thrilled to work for a company (Hydro Flask & Helen of Troy) that puts a huge emphasis in ensuring a great corporate culture . The business is challenging, but fun, and the atmosphere serious and yet relaxed. As I have repeated often, I really have no complaints.

    Cons

    The only thing I could think of is the speed we are moving. It is solely a result of unbelievably fast growth and as mentioned before, while challenging, it's also fun.

    Advice to Management

    Keep culture as an important piece of the puzzle. I know you do, but someday there could be a time where it becomes difficult. That's when it will be needed most.

    I worked at Helen of Troy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great product, great co-workers, nice office

    Cons

    This is the worst management team I have ever worked for in my 28 years. They leave employees out of meetings that relates directly to their business or uninvite them to important meetings; They have different rules for different people and those with bad behavior get away with it and I was told to "play nice" when I tried to stick up for myself or provide back-up on what the individual says is not correct; the VP...

    Advice to Management

    You need to reassess the individuals on your management team. You need to establish a productive culture because what you have going on right now is called Workplace Harrassment through the bullying, threats, hostility. Employees want to do the right things but if your management does not spend time with the employee to communicate expectations, direction, things they would like to see done, etc., then the employee...

    Cons

For example you have a spreadsheet that probably 120 lines he is include all of the new items coming out. The budget the requires gustimates of planogram changing the web for any sort of confirmation. Not only is this a waste of time but The poor people in forecasting use this number with your make-believe,...

    Advice to Management

    Micromanagement is horrific, sales rep group are in most cases a complete waste of money, selling beauty product never a reason to have 70-year-old man with you selling a Revlon straightener and hairdryer or shampoo
