One of the things that are blatantly obvious to anybody working at Newell is the lack of transparency throughout the company. Communication is always lacking, with pertinent information conveniently withheld. You will eventually get the required information through a coworker instead of your immediate supervisor. Needless to say, this creates mistrust between management and employees.
I can’t figure out why this is the case. This is a very complex company to maneuver, and without transparency the goals become clouded, which turns into a huge hindrance in moving forward. Why nobody does something to rectify this is beyond me.
