    I worked at Elmer's Products full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Elmer's as a company had solid values and goals which led to amazing brand recognition. Good work-family life balance. It made me proud to be part of such a historic company that is known and used in every household. Knowing that thousands of children would be using the products that we sold everyday for Valentines, Mother's Day cards, art projects, and much more meant something.

    Cons

    Elmer's as a company no longer exists after being purchased by Newell Rubbermaid Oct 2015. The headquarters is now closed, and all employees have to find alternative employment. Newell bought the Elmer's name and product, but the people that made it the success it is were left behind. The products are now Elmer's in name only. It's a brand among the Newell conglomerate.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the quality of this product diminish. The people who made the brand what it is today put their heart in it. It won't remain the gem it is if it's treated like one of the rest of the cattle.

    Pros

    Elmer's was a wonderful place to work for 10 years. Collaborative, positive environment with little stress and great work/life balance.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement and now the company is owned by Newell Rubbermaid so I can't comment on the company culture. Fast paced and dynamic work environment.
