I have been working at Newell Rubbermaid

Pros

I enjoy making noble products. Even though the company's goals are to make profit, it makes me feel good to know that my products will touch peoples lives in a positive way.

Cons

Even though NWL has been around a fair amount of time, there is always a lot of change, and no real long term vision is obtained.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it a goal to treat every cross functional group within a company equally (not playing favorits).

    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid

    Pros

    Great products and deep employee discounts.It is a great feeling to walk into a store and see products you had something to do with. It is also a great conversation starter when someone wants to know where you work. Everyone owns something from Newell.

    Cons

    Management is able to have free reign. If you like a good ole boy atmosphere Newell is for you! Off-site meetings are plentiful but not productive at all. Not being a "good fit" extends far beyond performance, which is ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop drinking and socializing and start being productive so the company doesnt go under in these hard economic times.

    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid

    Pros

    It's a solid company and a place to get sales experience. A person fresh out of college may not want to get involved with the retail side of things but if you can get in the business-to-business environment it is definately worth it.

    Cons

    When I was with them they were a fairly new sales organization that had some growing pains to go through. Since there was a lack of management experience the sales force was micromanaged which ultimately gummed up the works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It has been three years since I worked there so things may be different. I would say the organization needs to promote from within and make people earn their position.
