Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Opportunity to learn a lot. Very skilled, knowledgeable and professional co-workers. Very positive attitude throughout organization. Everyone is helpful. Very supportive work environment.

Cons

Lots of responsibilities, long hours, insufficient resoures, do more with less. No official Telework policies - therefore telecommuting is sporatic at best.

Advice to Management

Build in more flexibility with working hours/locations for employees if you want them to continue to do more. Cutting down on commute time is time that could be translated to extra work hours if employees were allowed to work from home.

    Current Employee - ADM in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful Corporate office offering wonderful amenities - on site gym, on site daycare, great cafeteria with many food choices offered, company store where you can purchase products are half off retail, free products when you participate in a focus group, Starbucks Cafe on site , not to mention free coffee and sodas on every floor!

    Cons

    Company is very pollitical. How far you get depends on who you know and socialize with. Process for employees and managers to complete performance appraisals is extremely labor intensive. It can be hard to find a good balance between work and personal life because of all the demands.

    Advice to Management

    Come down from your Ivory Tower and get to know your employees.

    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time

    Pros

    Used to be innovative, interesting, collaborative and fun at the Corporate Headquarters. They overpay and provided career opportunities.

    Cons

    Mass exodus due to failure of senior management team. Too many people now only in it for themselves - and typically those without the skills necessary to do their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at your people and weed out the poor performers or those without leadership capabilities (of course, that will be difficult since it starts at the top and trickles down - I'm sure they all stick together).
