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.

    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).

    Doesn't Recommend

    Follow the five point star center - develop people so they can drive the company back to success
