    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The rate of pay is acceptable and there is ample opportunity for overtime. Most exceptional is that benefits start from the very first day you are successfully hired.

    Cons

    Most of the time the workload is overwhelming because everything is so disorganized. Upper management pays lip service to safety but when legitimate concerns are brought up they turn a deaf ear. Consequently, this can be an extremely dangerous place to work, with fault for accidents being placed on low level employees who are really not truly responsible.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you are supposed to do! If a safety issue is brought up, follow up on it immediately. Don't wait around till something bad happens, then take disciplinary actions against employees who might be involved but are not truly at fault. If you have a safety meeting, listen to your employees and take IMMEDIATE action!

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, strong brand recognition and good benefits. Great exposure to all aspects of a large corporation without the standard red tape found at similar sized companies

    Rapid growth can add some challenges but there's a strong push to integrate quicker to alleviate these issues. Lack of direction can sometimes be difficult for new hires
