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

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    Get a clue. Birdola is a lost cause.
