    I worked at Helen of Troy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very nice facility. Great cafeteria.

    Cons

    Office gossip and politics made me feel like I was in high school again. There was a lot of back-biting, gossip, and just overall kid stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more from within, and provide more training to the office staff. While I was there, I felt stifled and I didn't feel like I could grow within the company. Also, pay more competitive salaries. The job I took right after working here paid twice as much, so I felt like I was severely underpaid while here.
