    No work - life balance. Toxic Environment

    Sep 11, 2019 - Account Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Ability to work without being micro managed. Great people to work with and among. Strong people who have been able to keep this ship afloat. Good products.

    Cons

    Work life balance did not exist outside of the corporate offices. Management is promoted from within and are all friends, it is not by merit. Some have been promoted either before the interview or without an interview. It has become a very toxic environment over the past 3 years. There has been NO innovation in the Pet, Home & Garden side over the past few years.

For ten years, Spectrum Brands has partnered with Well Aware Nonprofit to bring awareness to water insecurity in Africa. Since the partnership began in 2012, Spectrum Brands has helped fund more than 12 Well Aware projects and enabled more than 45,000 individuals in East Africa to gain clean water. Water insecurity affects millions of people, and disproportionately impacts women and children who are often responsible for collecting water for the family and community. As we celebrate #WorldWaterDay, you can help raise much needed funding for future water projects by participating in #ShowerStrike! Learn more at showerstrike.org.
