    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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 for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
