Pros

Fantastic office, excellent people of reasonably high caliber, career development starting to get better.

Cons

Too much corporate non-value added work (meetings, meetings, meetings meetings); excessive interference by cross functional people that want to run everything.

Advice to Management

Ensure that cross functional team members are being reigned in to each discipline can do its job. R & D is being choked and the R & D team needs more freedom. Mike Polk is a breath of fresh air - the company is going to start motoring with him at the helm.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Varies depending on manager and business unit. Overall, there's not a lot of positive comments.

    Cons

    Layoffs/Cutbacks to the point of not being able to do your job well.
    Lack of raises and bad HR policies.

    Advice to Management

    Realize your people are what makes your company succeed and treat them like it. Laying off someone and having the person next to them do both jobs with no incentives isn't going to help Newell Rubbermaid succeed.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great products, always fun to work for a company that makes products you can relate to. Had a great manager that cared a lot about my experiences and skills development. Others at the company are also great to work with.

    Cons

    Company is currently struggling and facing new leadership, downsizing, and slow performance. I worked there as an intern and was not given a full time offer (none of my fellow interns were either) due to restructuring. Worst part was that managers likely knew that I would not be hired for full time because of budgeting but did not communicate this until many months after the internship was over.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and honest with how the company is doing and job prospects to interns through the interview process and job.
