No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great compensation, bonus structure if you ask for it. Some really smart people work there too-- you have to seek them out, because Newell is scattered all around the country.

Cons

I wouldn't say that all the senior leadership is smart-- many are stuck in their ways, and flip flop all over the place on s trategy.

Advice to Management

I'd suggest that management not focus so much on cost-cutting all the time-- so many rounds of layoffs left us demoralized and understaffed to do really good work.

    Approves of CEO

    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.
