Thread regarding Newell Brands layoffs

Act like the adults you are!

Newell had one of the worst cultures I’ve ever experienced. Between the he said/she said atmosphere and heard it through the grapevine communication -it’s almost like being back in high school. Promotions seem to be based on a ‘that’s my boy’ attitude instead of dedication and hard work.

It amazed me that employees only got ahead because of who they knew, or how well liked they were. I’ve seen people work their fingers to the bone and put in the long hours yet were never recognized for it.

Towards the end of my time there, there was so much frustration. Most of the employees felt undervalued, underappreciated and overlooked. Who could really blame them?

Don't forget the Value Engineering they have been doing to s--- all the value out of the products but leave the premium prices.

I was there for a year and a half in a division that got sold off. There's obviously a "club" of protected folks tied to Polk and company. I got the impression that management was playing a "shell game" of divestitures, mergers and acquisitions to mask poor year to year results. You can play that game for a while, (think GE), but, it always catches up to you in the end.
