    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Iconic brands. I got to work with some fabulous people, most of which were laid off.

    Cons

    No stability, short sights plans except to make each quarter for the street and pay huge bonuses to leadership. I worked here 7 years and saw 5 ground up reorganizations. Staff turns were likely in excess of 50% per annum. People with more than 19 years tenure were routinely laid off. Nothing you could do made you safe from the perpetual re-org axe. I wasted my time and talents here.

    Advice to Management

    What you do for the company is not worth the bonus you pay yourselves. The short term thinking will eventually leave you with nothing.

    "No room for advancement or training working for people who do far less work than their subordinates."

    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro to working here was the steady paycheck and abundance of chance for overtime.

    Cons

    The lack of respect for employees is one of the biggest drawback to working here. You are treated as an expendable asset and nothing more. Quotas are expected to be met, even when it's impossible. For example, when a safety meeting takes up an hour or more of the morning work time, you are still expected to meet the quota for 6 hours in 5.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with more respect and understand that if you use up work time for meetings, the quota should be reduced.
