I have been working at Spectrum Brands

Pros

Promotes from within. Management listens to your ideas. Flexible regarding taking time off for personal reasons. They allowed me to to take a leave of absence when my wife was diagnosed with dementia.

Cons

Management is sometimes a bit too bottom-line oriented and does not see the big picture. They need to understand that they need to look beyond the next quarter.
