NWL is a good place, but has a lot of potential to improve.

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).

    Pros

    Tons of potential with new management after the financial mess. Great vision and structural changes that sets the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    Too many individual companies working on their own accord. New management is doing their best to fix this, but old culture is hard to get rid of. Sometimes you feel like you really work for your unit instead of Newell Rubbermaid as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management has their stuff together. Great vision and they seem to be taking the right steps to get back on track.

    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.
