I have been working at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great corporate office, competitive salaries for area, proximity to good Atlanta suburbs, talented workforce in most positions. Tuition reimbursement program for higher learning. Flexible work hours in most positions. Global reach.

Cons

Company is a serial re-organizer. Things have recently started to stabilize under new CEO, but "Growth Game Plan" initiatives haven't made a major impact to many facets of the company yet. Must be self starter to get recognized and promoted. Doing status quo competitently isn't enough to advance. This is both a pro and con.

Advice to Management

Spend more effort developing talent already within organization, more transparency on long term plans from middle mangers to individual contributors.

    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Big corporation, standard benefits and pay rates, making efforts to improve their environmental impact, investing on training is limited but increasing.

    Cons

    Short term policies, not a real mid-term or long term strategy, leaving North America for low pay countries. Turnover for managers and above positions really high (average stay is less than two years).

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest on new products and generally speaking in R&D. The products being offered by the company were leaders but are now well behind the competition.
