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 ManagementAdvice

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).
