    I have been working at Spectrum Brands as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice, well paid for an intern, and located in an area with good lunch options. The people in my department make this an enjoyable place to be.

    Cons

    The building is cramped and there doesn't seem like there is a lot of upward mobility career-wise. Departments are very siloed sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Create a communication system between departments and if you say you're going to focus on an area, put your money where your mouth is.

    Pros

    Benefits are great
    Majority of people are good to work with
