I have been working at Jarden

Pros

Great location, great brands, good benefits, good people

Cons

If you like politics and saying yes please, you will love it here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your head out of your you know what and look at what smaller companies are doing. They are innovating faster with products people want - not established brands. Put aside your ego and collaborate with teams and consumers.

    I worked at Jarden full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Discounts on products, nice corporate office building with covered parking.

    Cons

    No succession planning, limited opportunities to be promoted to management, numerous layoffs prior to end of yr to meet numbers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring the high salaries and great benefits back, Jarden has stripped incentives of working here.

    I have been working at Jarden full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a job - gotta pay the bills

    Cons

    No concern for environmental impact - they avidly seek to produce products with a disposable component, so they can sell more; make products with the intention of needing full replacement within a few years
    No social responsibility - as China is becoming more unionized, they brag about seeking "cheap labor" elsewhere, such as in Central America or any country that does not have protection for workers
    Only real concern is numbers behind the dollar sign for their primary shareholders and competing with other similar corporations to have the highest dollar value - this isn't even about money, but about being on top
    No interest or concern for long-term impact on their country of origin, the US - blandly inform us that the middle class is disappearing in our country, so their marketing strategies will focus on the emerging middle class in South America and India; outsource manufacturing and any other area they can

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a conscience. Realize workers are people, whether they are direct employees or working in a factory in China. Worship something other than money.
