    I worked at Spectrum Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will learn quick survival skills.
    Positioning to perfection a challenging situation, so it is viewed as a true positive.
    Learning that things happen for a reason and learn from adversity to value future endeavors.

    Cons

    CEO needs total retooling on what to say and what not to say. We are taught in top business schools that politics and religion is not discussed in open forums. A CEO should show true leaqadership and appreciate their employees. They need to remember who is at the frontlines making sure their investments are doubled.
    Upper management does not have solid convictions or views on ways to move forward, too busy playing the game. Taking too many short cuts on products and it is affecting quality.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to someone who truely wants to invest in the brand, product development and employees. These are key to make your business grow, be respected and seen as a leader.
    Mandating employees to take furloughs is not a way to make the company profitable.

    Pros

    Promotes from within. Management listens to your ideas. Flexible regarding taking time off for personal reasons. They allowed me to to take a leave of absence when my wife was diagnosed with dementia.

    Cons

    Management is sometimes a bit too bottom-line oriented and does not see the big picture. They need to understand that they need to look beyond the next quarter.
