    Revolving door. Company fires you for lame reasons just to get new talent in and do the same thing. No job security at all.

    Endless career development opportunities. Great training and mentoring.

    Cons

    Organization changes were frequent during my time with the company however, that goes with the territory in a turbulent economy in my view.

    Pros

    Decent salary and many brand to relate with

    Cons

    - lack of leadership
    - zero employee engagement culture
    - no consideration for any employees
    - never would recommend anyone to work here

    Advice to Management

    Shop playing the game and step down, how dare you give yourself a millions of dollar salary when you don't even lead!!! Hope analysts at Wall Street read this and know that all that CEO show and number at all a lie. Show some honesty! I guess thats not a word in you vocabulary....

    Pros

    Starbucks in the corporate office.

    Cons

    Interesting how Newell moved all their designers to Kalamazoo Michigan, yet continues to still post design job openings in cities that don't have design anymore, like Chicago and Atlanta.

    Pros

    the brands, people and Collaboration labs

    Cons

    CDLT, morale, no support from management, creating culture of pointing fingers and playing the blame game b/c everyone is too nervous they will be fired

    Advice to Management

    Take more notice of your employees and acknowledge the hard work and long hours everyone puts in. Company morale is at all time low and upper management doesn't seem to care which furthers the morale issue. The engagement survey continues to release very poor results but again the CDLT has the right words but the actions are never there. Everyone is expected to work harder and longer with less resources and little support. They are creating an environment where employees argue with one another, point fingers, and most people are unhappy and/or trying to leave. It could be such a great company with awesome brands but until they start paying more attention to the employees the morale issue will not go away. The atmosphere is very tense and they use the word "team" often but the actions are not there. Management needs to understand they cannot continue to win without the hard work of the employees. Mike Polk has brought over many leaders from Kraft and Unilever and overall their leadership styles are more about threatening and bullying than leading.
