    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Big corporation, standard benefits and pay rates, making efforts to improve their environmental impact, investing on training is limited but increasing.

    Cons

    Short term policies, not a real mid-term or long term strategy, leaving North America for low pay countries. Turnover for managers and above positions really high (average stay is less than two years).

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest on new products and generally speaking in R&D. The products being offered by the company were leaders but are now well behind the competition.

    Great place to excel if you don't mind playing a cut-throat corporate game and taking advantage of others.

    I have been working at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits Nice work environment (corporate headquarters) OK company discount Competitive environment

    Cons

    High turnover Employee unrest and dissatisfaction is common Dog eat dog culture Lack of respect from management Secretive and elitist management styles are common Lack of team collaboration

    Advice to Management

    Lacks candid communication and human-to-human interactions. Instead, bus-throwing and backstabbing excelerate people through the ranks. Hard work and positive results play a distant second to politics.
