    Positive Outlook

    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

    Advice to Management

    --Remember that people drive your results and continue to make the progress you've been making --Figure out how to get Atlanta divisions and Corporate located under one roof

    Pros

    Newell has great brands and great people. IT offers a lot of opportunity to work on great projects. You'll work hard and play hard.

    Cons

    The company is going through a lot of change and it has affected morale. The retail market is tough and the company is struggling to figure it out.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the core businesses before changing again.

    I have been working at Newell Brands full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice office in Hoboken, great people

    Cons

    Completely unorganized from the top down, no room to grow, everyone is overworked and stretched thin. BS Politics get in the way of a functioning company.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the middle managers, who make everyone's life a living hell.

    Pros

    They have great people and awesome brands!!

    Cons

    Newell use to be a fun and exciting place to work. Over a short period of time, company morale dropped to an all time low and growth opportunities were scarce. Due to the recent restructure, many talented employees were laid off.

    I have been working at Newell Brands full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great brands and great people.

    Cons

    I’ve been in this Industry for nearly 20 yrs and have never seen such dysfunction. Mike Polk and others single handled destroyed 2 companies and thousands of lives in the process. Micro managing and poor strategic thinking is the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Mr Polk, do EVERYONE a favor and walk away. It’s the only thing you can do to deliver shareholder value.
