    Pros

    Good job to work for with nice rewards such as free products. Nice pace of work.

    Cons

    Long commute time, it is not centrally located and they do not close when it snows heavily; and the managers except employees to come in anyway.
    Lately high turnover rate in my department that creating tension with those that have stayed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more interest in an employee's who wants to further their growth, career development within the company

    Great company but hard to move up

    I have been working at Church & Dwight

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, nice perks like 3 weeks vacation, personal and sick paid time off, company picnic every year.

    Cons

    Politics like any other company, seem to prefer Penn State graduates for new hires and promotions. Hard to move up unless you are one if the favored ones. Runs a lean staff and with budget cuts comes less room for advancement. Don't have flex hours or work from home opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize people for their hard work- stop giving made up excuses why people aren't getting promotions when others that do not deserve it are. Add additional staff where needed so employees are not overloaded with work.

    Pros

    Corporate support from Ewing is good. Professionals in the company are treated well. Support by managers varies a lot depending on who it is.

    Cons

    stress through an acquisition is tough. The employee morale at the Vancouver site has dropped to an all time low. I think the communication from HR is lacking greatly. Plus lots of ethics issues that are not addressed in Vancouver by the on-site HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gaining respect and trust by employees is important at this site. Weed out the bad and bring in some fresh faces across the board.

    My experience greatly improved my resume, but my learning curve (as a co-op) peaked out after 3 months.

    I worked at Church & Dwight

    Pros

    Real world experience, including sap. There were great people to work with as well as a fun (but expensive) location in Princeton.

    Cons

    As I said before my learning curve peaked out after a few months and I feel as though there was no organization in some of the main goals of my department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the management seemed disinterested in the low-level employees. They need to learn that it is the low level employees that deal with the customers.

    I worked at Church & Dwight

    Pros

    Church & Dwight has come a long way in the last few years. They have made some strategic acquisitions and are being favorably viewed by Wall Street.. Management has work to address some of the changes that were plaguing the company before including culture and work life balance. If you are coming from another company with a strong marketing background, you have the opportunity to really stand out from your peers and to excel.

    Cons

    Internally, they continue to minimally invest in their brands. If you are coming here to do marketing, you will find your time more focused on project and general management activities.

    For any group but sales - this is a great company.

    I worked at Church & Dwight

    Pros

    Up and coming company that has - thus far - remained under the radar from the big giants it competes with (although this won't be for much longer). Plenty of opportunities in the company, and a strong financeand PSM group make it a place to work - if you're in those groups.

    Cons

    Sales group - both internal and external - run like the "fast food" shop of CPG companies, as they have taken so much under their belt that they cannot quite grasp what to organize and do about it. The internal sales group is led by a management team that is extremely political and territorial, using fear as a way to drive it's employees rather than cultivating them to grow. If you are looking outside of the sales group, this is a great company. If you're looking in the sales group....well, then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strategic plan for the company is great - execution at the sales level is significantly lacking, and this will become evident shortly.
