    I have been working at Newell Brands full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    --Great products --Great brands --Great people --Finally bid adieu to leaders that didn't care about the people & now we are beginning to feel a big positive change --Many opportunities to develop & to make an impact

    Cons

    --Still a lot of change but far more manageable now that leadership changes have been implemented --Depending on location, parking can be a bit painful --Too many locations in Atlanta (3 or 4 buildings) instead of a single location
