A solid company to work for

Pros

Being such a large company there are so many opportunities to move, both geographically and professionally. If you need to relocate management does a good job of finding an opportunity for you either in your divison or in a different division.

Also management does a good job of letting you dictate your career path. They will help you move into whatever field you would like, but that may require relocating. Sales jobs can be found in all areas but marketing, finance, etc positions need to obviously be done at one of the divisions locations.

Cons

Newell believes in paying its employees around the 50th percentile within its industry. However, our products and sales are usually higher than our competitors, so that can be frustrating. They try to bonus a little better than their competitors, but that's only beneficial when you hit your numbers.

    Lots of potential, great opportunities if you can deal with constant redirection.

    Pros

    Large corporation with lots of opportunities to learn for those in the early stages of their career.

    Long term strategies never given a chance to play out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in the right people to develop long term plans, and hold them accountable for small steps required to meet those plans.

    NWL is a great company.

    Current Employee - Sales in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    NWL is a great place to work. For the most part, it is a strong company to work for. In a time of uncertain jobs, it seems like NWL is doing their part to try and keep as many people employed as possile.

    Cons

    Seems like upper management in my division doesn't "get it". They don't understand exactly what it is the customer is looking for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to reality. Take a look at what the customers are saying and fix it.
