I worked at Spectrum Brands

Pros

The benefit package is equal to competing companies. If in sales, the incentive program tends to be lucrative, if the quota/goals are put within realistic range.

Cons

Continual restructuring. Constant fear of job security. A CPG value brand that has no intention of being any better than #3 with consumers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reassure employees of state of organization and benefit they provide/contribute. Inspire them to be better individuals in their work, which ultimately benefits the organization. Share with the company the vision you have for the organization and what the progress is with that vision.
