    Pros

    The company philosophy of empowering their independent sales force with a great earning opportunity is admirable. The people that work at the corporate office are competent and work very hard. There are opportunities to promote from within. The campus is beautiful.

    Cons

    Office politics are ridiculous. Lack of true leadership to do what is right rather than what will further careers is rampant. Strategy continually changing with little results. The difference between what is expected and what is possible with existing resources is unattainable.

    Advice to Management

    None as the culture is very resistant to change. Take accountability for poor decisions.

    Pros

    Paid internship, great company discount and great working environment. The leadership takes an interest in your development, which is rare. Overall, it was a great experience.

    Cons

    Some issues with communication exist, so be sure to get everything in writing. Improvements could be made in terms of strategic company growth. The culture seems to be one that "brushes things under the rug," so that is an area of improvement.

    Pros

    The company values are superb, it's not just a tag line but this company truly changes people's lives.

    Cons

    Like any corporation there are politics that are followed here

    Advice to Management

    Open up a bit more and take in ideas from more junior employees - there is a lot of passion and care by many employees here that can be used to make this an even better company.

    Pros

    Lots of great people. Job was interesting. Great perks such as full gym on campus and free products. COO and CEO have open door and care about employees and community.

    Cons

    There are too many transitions among Managers, Directors, VP’s and CFO’s. New managers/directors do not honor prior mangers work in progress especially when it comes to promotions. This has a negative impact on employee morale. Employees find it difficult to move forward as they are basically starting over every time their manager/director is transferred to a different area. The VP of HR also prevents managers from promoting deserving employees.

    Pros

    Sales requirements to stay active are just high enough to encourage some activity, but not high enough that it is un-achievable. GREAT sales incentives and rewards. Growth potential. Works the phrase "you get out of it what you put into it" very well.

    Cons

    It can be a lot of "stuff" to have and carry places with you. Its easy to get caught in a replacement trap, where everyone wants to warranty items and nobody wants to buy anything. Sales can greatly depend on how the media is portraying the economy.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, nice perks, and an overall positive place to work. They care for their customers who are known as the Tupperware Sales Force. The regular, non-management employees, are great.

    Cons

    There are "managers" who have worked there for years that have no idea how to do their jobs. There are VPs who are hired in because they could sell Tupperware at a party 10+ years ago but they have no idea on how to transfer that success to others. This company is in a coma (especially the North American branch). The VPs and some mangers would rather manipulate through social popularity then with strong supportive leadership and intelligence. Tupperware Brands management is like a Sorority at a community college - no substance needed. If you want to work where you are judged only on how well you can kiss up then this is the place for you. If you want to work with intelligent people where you are challenged, encouraged, and judged on your merits then work elsewhere. (The only reason they rank in the "Orlando Sentinel" best place to work for working families is because the call center employees and support staff are the largest % of people who work there and their hours are flexible.) Be warned - almost all of the positive reviews on Glassdoor are from independent Tupperware business owners (consultants) they are not corporate employees.

    Advice to Management

    Value positive conflict and foster a safe place for disagreement and resolution. It's not ok to create a hostile work environment because someone disagrees or challenges the status quo. Shame on you HR! Shame on you for allowing a great company to be controlled by a few despots and their cronies!

    Pros

    Amazing sales force members with incredible passion! Great products and an amazing earning opportunity!

    Cons

    Depending on who the president is, the general feel of the organization will shift greatly. This leads to a lack of continuity and overall failure to follow through on long term objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus on mentoring, accountability, and follow through.

    Pros

    Discount on the Tupperware Products. Nice HR Manager who realizes that her hands are tied and the good ole boys are running the show.

    Cons

    The most underdeveloped Supply Chain Organization in the 21st Century. Plant Manager would never last in another manufacturing environment because he is unable to understand the basics of supply chain and has zero respect for women in the workplace OR the concept of work in family. IT systems are under developed and everyone complains that they have so much work to do but they are really 'milking' it for fear of losing their job security. Office Non exempt employees work over time unnecessarily and spend most of their day on personal phone calls OR selling Tupperware on the side. They say they want to advance and learn how other successful companies function but they are not open to change whatsoever. The lifers better be thankful for their jobs because no other company that functions in this world would have them. The only good part about this company is the HR Manager and her department.

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean and be truthful and honest. Stop lying to corporate and own up for the decisions you make.
