I have been working at The Chamberlain Group full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Little chance of layoffs. They do a decent job of recognizing talent in most cases. The pay is very good for the area

Cons

Poor quality throughout the company, very few new designs in the companies 50 years. Manager to employee ration is is very top heavy. Problems in the company are very well known but never make it to the upper echelons of the management.

    Pros

    Great people who care and want to make the best products for our customers. Investments are never an issue here...money is available.

    Cons

    CEO talks a great story, but is airing nothing but boring repeats now. If your resume says Newel/Rubbermaid your guaranteed high pay and 3+ years of your laurels carrying you. If your in enough meetings with the CEO you will learn he respects nobody and has neutered his leadership team. Talented people are leaving by the droves, but it does not really matter because the remaining leaders are blissfully ignorant. If you think this review sounds harsh...its not. If people said how this company really operates, 60 minutes would want to do a story.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hey Ownership...wake up. I think you should start asking some questions of people. ELT you need to start showing some backbone...your staff would love to see you fight back for what is right at least once.

    Pros

    good salary, healthcare benefits, 401K, and wellness programs.

    Cons

    Unless you are from Newell Rubbermaid or a man - forget being able to get promoted into a senior role. A overwhelming majority of the ELT, VP roles are male and from Newell Rubbermaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to handle women and look beyond the boys Newell network
