Cons

Pay Below Industry Averages
Private Equity Culture
May Not be a Great Place to Stay (depends what you want in your career)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay for performance and for retention
Marketing can't always be quantified to the nth degree; treat the discipline and talent like valuable resources for growth

    I worked at Spectrum Brands full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I joined the company before we were acquired by Spectrum Brands and it was a great place to work!

    Cons

    Lack of communication and information sharing. Over promising and under delivering on projects and commitments. Antiquated methods that are not efficient for larger acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so arrogant and try working with others outside of your immediate circle. You might be surprised at what you can accomplish if you do. It's ok to admit you need help or made a mistake, people will appreciate and respect the honesty.

    I have been working at Spectrum Brands full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing good about this company. Poor management. No training. High turnover.

    Cons

    Checks are wrong most of the time. You are expected to do more than what you were hired to do. If you complain you are punished

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue. Birdola is a lost cause.
