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

    Pros

    Benefits are a plus. That's about it.

    Cons

    Depends what department you work for, there is no OT at any time, PTO is difficult to obtain and you feel like you are back in High School. HR needs to be more professional, they will never protect the employee even if it's said it's an open door policy. If an employee raises an opinion or their voice, rest assure that employee will be fired or pressured so much they quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to stop favoring managers, VP's or anyone with a higher power. Stop hiring your friends HR!
