Corporate culture is fantastic, easy to shape your career how you want it (mobility), constructive and development teams, and great training

Went on a hiring freeze so wasn't extended an offer at the end of the internship, benefits aren't that great

Advice to Management

For each project, make it clear (for interns) who they need to share information with and receive approval from

    SAP Systems

    Cons

    No Work/Life Balance

    Incompetent Management - (Wrong plp running teams) Ex- Production Guy running Global Ops.
    Never appreciative for any extra hard work
    Don't value people.
    No Accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Company is surviving due to the Brand Equity like Sharpie, Paper-mate, Parker, EXPO and because of your mismanagement (Supply Chain) we are earning below Par.

    Recognize the position you are in and the consistent short falls in the goals. Take the hint, let someone better manage it.

    I have been working at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome product line, great people who are passionate about the work that they do make this a fun place to work for.

    Cons

    Mid to senior level management are not reacting well to challenges in the business and the result has been a lot of micromanagement and decisions that make it difficult for employees to work to their full potential.

    Advice to Management

    Step back, let us work, and lead us - don't just manage us.
