I have been working at Newell Rubbermaid full-time

Pros

Excited company culture, products that sell themselves, excellent work/life balance, perks, 401k match, great people throughout.

Cons

Occasional manufacturing issues but full disclosure on root and solution timeline. Sometimes the paper work is excessive and takes a toll on sales.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

End repeat work. Hold people more accountable.

    Nobody in the rank-and-file really approves of what Mike Polk is doing, however the stock price is going up, so he must be making somebody happy. Lots of attrition in the last year. On the upside we are now allowed to wear jeans to work.

    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I can't think of any. This company is a total mess.

    Cons

    Pay very low and salary increase very low. Zero promotional opportunity & excessive amount of workload. Survival very much down to luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't just go off the street, purchase a company and call it your next big thing. The structure of this company is so increasingly hierarchical & employee's true voice are often buried either regionally or within product group.
