I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Always looking at best practices and driving technology. Great opportunity to learn and gain expertise. Work/ life balance and culture are fantastic. People here love being here and believe in the products they sell.

Cons

Several departments across too many business groups have undergone changes too fast and have left employees nervous and uncertain about the direction and future of the company. Over the past 4 years the company may have become too lean and lost some of it's strategic edge as business units do not all go to market the same way yet were aligned together to streamline functions that do not drive sales.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of alignment of business units by common theme of product offerings align business units by how the products are purchased by consumers.

    A constant revolving door of executives, restructurings and changing strategies

    I have been working at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (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
