I have been working at Jarden (More than 10 years)
A diverse stable of brands and products create an environment that's challenging and seldom boring.
Management plays favorites. Limited growth opportunities unless you're a member of the inner circle. It's often difficult to understand why resources are allocated where and when they are (if they are).
Advice to Management
Stated business goals seem to be at odds with available budgets and resources.
The entire process was poorly executed. An external recruiter contacted me and told me I was a strong fit. They asked to put my resume in front of Jarden's hiring team. Feedback was supposed to be provided within the week. Two weeks later, after multiple emails requesting a status update, they had no direction from Jarden. Then, on Monday at 4:30 PM I was contacted and asked to drive two hours the next day for a face to face interview. They literally provided 18 hours notice. I was frustrated because I had to clear my calendar or forfeit the interview. Follow up was supposed to be provided within 48 hours of the interview for next steps. As expected, it took a full week. No offer was extended, but after this process I had reservations about working with Jarden. The interview process provides insight into how a company operates. Also, there was no offer to compensate me for gas, tolls for the trip.
