Pros

Being an intern at Newell Rubbermaid was a great learning experience. There was a lot of integration with the other interns and hands on work instead of pushing papers.

Cons

Not the greatest office and the some of the electronics outdated

    Pros

    - great people - nice location - awesome brand recognition

    Cons

    - restructuring about every 2 years - very low annual raises even after a great performance review - promotions can be postponed up to a year during restructuring - senior management thinks opportunistically and has no vision for big ideas - senior management is voluntarily destroying the consumer's perception of Rubbermaid quality - constant turnover in brand marketing results in uneducated decision making

    Advice to Management

    Try to remember who is ultimately deciding if your brand 'matters' or not. It's not the share holders, the retailers, or the executive leadership team...it's the consumer. When the consumer decides to spend their hard earned money on a Rubbermaid product, they should be rewarded with something that at very least does what it promises to do and does not break, but beyond that they should feel that they made a great decision because Rubbermaid products ALWAYS deliver.

    Pros

    Nice office Gym on-site Cafeteria Employee store International ops

    Cons

    Company is doing lay-offs in the next 3 years. Shutting down US ops and In Europe to ship them to 3rd world countries. Leadership asks employees to save 50 million dollars in 3 years while de CEO took a bonus during his first year which only were 6 months of 25 million dollars!

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example
