    I worked at Newell Rubbermaid full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some very good middle management/Sales/Marketing people with great knowledge/experience. Strong brand names developed in the past. Location good for commuters in west end. Canadian HR people are good ( despite other reviews ) but have a challenging job covering mistakes and generally poor corporate strategy. Canadian Management team also pretty good but again, battling poor regional strategy. Could be a good training ground for entry positions, some divisions are quite strong in their market like Rubbermaid Commercial. For a stepping stone and learning experience, not a bad option but don't get comfortable. Good to learn "process" and what constitutes too much process. Was a nice place to work 10 years ago.

    Cons

    High talent people leaving, advancement poor, salary increases for top performers are very similar to bottom producers and small ( inflation only), They definitely do not walk the talk- a ton of propaganda, Morale is very poor, many long meetings and much paper shuffling with little real content or results, very political, feedback is not welcome ( if critical )despite what you may hear,
    Bonus watered down and hard to make any real dollars, people are not highly regarded ( more of a disposable commodity ) HR is tasked with applying perfumes to very poor decisions- feel bad for local HR. Head office may be a different story. Work load heavy for many. Benefits decreasing annually. Employees targeted for savings in many ways. Growth in certain divisions will not be there. If you are a Yes Man, then this may be a great place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your people do their jobs- please. Despite constant interruption with useless reports and paper pushing, they deliver excellent results. Good people are leaving ( and many others actively looking ) and it is costing you a lot of money ( its hidden and hard to track but its real ) Most decisions and direction come from the US which is where most of the issues reside. Canada simply follows directions. Departments are being slashed and moved to US. Some of this will likely be reversed in future years as unforeseen problems arise- market share erosion.
    Hold serious, open minded internal consulting sessions for true improvements. Pay those people instead of external consultants. Cut out tasks that don't deliver real value- tons of them. Shorten other processes significantly. This is my final attempt to "make a difference" and "raise the bar " for current and future employees and the business overall. Hope it helps.
