Advice to ManagementAdvice

when headhunters only suggest Jarden as a possible job opportunity if they are unemployed but make it clear that you dont want to leave a job to go to Jarden, you know their are issues.

    Cubicle Farm - Looks good from outside (granite/glass/mirrors) but it's really hundreds of 6'X6'

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice people. Get out one hour early on Friday.

    Cons

    Cube farm where everyone has a 6'X6' cube. There are hundreds on every floor. The aisle widths are OSHA minimum. No labs, just a "kitchen" with no tools. Break rooms are tiny, no chair in them, just a place to grab the coffee and go back to your cube. No place to decompress.

    Noisy, corporate, lots of jargon. Typical corporate environment. And the work hours are 8:30 to 5:30 p.m., which steals 30 minutes from my evening (it matters in the winter when the time changes).

    Lots of corporate Jargon and abstract work (everything is designed and made in China). Late night or early morning conference call.

    But.... very nice people, smart too. Just would have taken me years to get used to it all.

    Challenging Retail Realities

    Pros

    A challenging environment with the opportunity to develop state-ot-the-art solutions for the reail space. Relationships are respectful and collegial. Micro-management is rare and flex-time based on need is supported. Emphasis on professional development.

    Cons

    Intense deadlines, short-term goals, metrics driven activities, stress.. No 'Big Picture' vision or strategy for the long haul. Very difficult to maintain work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to develop a vision and strategy that incorporates emerging technologies to leverage the ability to communicate, sell and grow brands. Need to create compelling narratives and identities for each brand in order to be meaningful in the minds of consumers.
