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

    Pros

    Roll up your sleeves and leave your title at the door. Spectrum has a "get it done" attitude and the teams truly pull together to drive strategy, sales, and fix problems. Part of the culture is the great Madison area but Spectrum has shifted into growth mode creating tremendous opportunities for a long term career. From the CEO to the Senior Leadership team you feel plugged into the new energy and the acquisition strategy is exciting.

    Cons

    I wouldn't say con as much as opportunity. The new teams in place will help define the longer term strategy and continue to test and learn new ways to market at retail and online.

    Pros

    -CEO is trying to be as transparent as possible. It is so great to see him as a ' normal person' and that is how it should be!
    -With CEO being transparent, that then falls down into VPs, DVPs, and Directors. You can see this happening throughout the company and it has been a positive change.
    -Co-Workers are awesome and helpful. Everyone seems to have a similar mindset in getting work done. I really enjoy working with the people I get to work with each day.
    -There is a lot of change going on every single day. You thought you were going one direction for three months and then it can change within 2 minutes. If you do not do well with an ever-changing work atmosphere, this place is not for you.

    Cons

    -HR department really needs work on communication from top to bottom, not just half of the department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and great atmosphere that allows people to enjoy their jobs day in and day out!

    Pros

    Career opportunity, competitive pay/benefits and leaders who encourage people to try something new including new projects in the job or totally new role. Plenty of chances to do that with high growth and acquisition plans.

    Cons

    Pace can be a bit hectic at times - plans and priorities change quickly. If that's not your bag it's a challenge.
