    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time

    Pros

    Salary was good so long as you didn't mention the elephant in the room.

    Cons

    Equipment and tooling left to rot under leaking roof, Production efficiency on key product line is less than 50% but celebrated ny management when reported at 65%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with yourself about the state of operations and stop glassing over things with slick media releases.

    I have been working at Newell Rubbermaid full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some really strong brands, like Sharpie and Calphalon. Decent total compensation plan if you are at Director level or above.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring and management changes, which ripples through the organization. Fairly negative environment in Atlanta, and salary freezes for many. Too many decisions, even small ones, made by handful of people, leading to lack of direction and indecision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the people, create career paths, and do more than just cut costs

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
