I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time

Pros

Used to be innovative, interesting, collaborative and fun at the Corporate Headquarters. They overpay and provided career opportunities.

Cons

Mass exodus due to failure of senior management team. Too many people now only in it for themselves - and typically those without the skills necessary to do their jobs.

Advice to Management

Really look at your people and weed out the poor performers or those without leadership capabilities (of course, that will be difficult since it starts at the top and trickles down - I'm sure they all stick together).

    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.
