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

Pros

Mimio: great team spirit and cross functional department. Cambridge location is nice.

Cons

- Slow growth. Inconsistent career opportunity from department to department.Pays less than market rate.
• WEAK business strategy- R&D managers call the shots with many short sighted decisions and little to no long term benefit.
• LACK of discipline and focus- the leadership team chases after everything, stretching resources way too thin.
• CONSTANT restructuring across teams and company. Damaged the ability to move the company forward and stay competitive.
• CHOKING on process. Corporate structure is overly complicated and shared resources with sister companies not in the same business is inefficient and wasteful. Formality and inefficient tools like making all staff use SAP has bogged down the department.
- CONSTANT restructuring and layoffs on a quarterly basis. Bloated corporate infrastructure is killing the entrepreneurial company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell off the company! Your bloated process and infrastructure is choking and non-competitive. Start recognizing your strong talent and make an effort to nurture and retain it. A LOT of strong talent has left over the past 2 years.

    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Corporate culture is fantastic, easy to shape your career how you want it (mobility), constructive and development teams, and great training

    Cons

    Went on a hiring freeze so wasn't extended an offer at the end of the internship, benefits aren't that great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For each project, make it clear (for interns) who they need to share information with and receive approval from
