Former Employee - Senior Organizational Management Manager in Atlanta, GA
Former Employee - Senior Organizational Management Manager in Atlanta, GA

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

Recommends

    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 ManagementAdvice

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