Worst employer I've ever encountered

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Huntersville, NC

I worked at Newell Rubbermaid

ProsYou sometimes get some free products, especially from all the rejected "ideas". Worked with a lot of very nice people, many of which were very smart and business saavy - coming from a variety of different backgrounds.

ConsPoor leadership; no vision; no articulated strategy. For a consumer goods company they have a very limited view and use of consumer insight even though they talk a big story.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe are in the 21st century - wake-up and smell the coffee. You do not encourage employees to consider new ways of doing things, you are very hierarchical and you over-inflate consumer's evaluation of your brands.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
