    Pros

    Nice people, casual environment, opportunity to work in a lot of different industries, actually good work/life balance, it's a really exciting time to work there since there's lots of new brands and locations

    Cons

    Can be viewed as "bland corporate culture." The benefits are not unique, but still a solid place to work. HR can be too bound by rules

    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working at Newell Rubbermaid was great. Awesome products that everyone is familiar with, and much improved focus on branding.

    Cons

    Communication was challenging at times, and could feel like operating in silos. This may have improved with the change in portfolio that has been happening the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on R&D and long term investment and less on wall street will help the company more in the long run.
