    Pros

    Great leadership and fair performance evaluation. Also, discounts on batteries!

    Cons

    They filed Chapter 11 so job security is an issue. In marketing there isn't too many places to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the honest conversations.

    I worked at Spectrum Brands

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Spectrum Brands is that as a Spectrum employee you will be given a great deal of freedom with which to do your job. As a whole Spectrum's lower management levels were staffed by intelligent and capable people who were deeply devoted to their task. The level of dedication at the lower levels of management was remarkable. The products produced by Spectrum are of a high quality and generally well developed and placed in the market place.

    Cons

    Senior management seems to have absolutely no connection to their workers. They make decisions that have negatively affected the company on many occasions. The support from corporate to the lower reaches of the sales-force is lackluster at best. The salaries, bonuses, and benefits given to employees are sub standard at best. Promotions rarely happened in my experience and bonuses were rarely paid out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out in the field and try working a little for yourself.
