    Pros

    Great, friendly environment that makes you feel welcome early on. Building is not huge so everything is not overwhelming.

    Cons

    Thrown to the wolves somewhat upon entering company. They will help you out with questions, but there is a steep learning curve. Hard to advance.

    Pros

    There was a lot of opportunity for intern work, and all work was valuable and useful work, typically things full-time employees didn't have capacity to work on but were still important.

    Cons

    Not much is offered to Undergrad interns.

    Advice to Management

    hire more people! People can be spread thin,

    I have been working at Church & Dwight full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company growth has meant good bonuses and no layoffs. They generally take pretty good care of you here. Relative to larger companies, politics and bureaucracy is less.

    Cons

    Growth has meant more politics and bureaucracy. I get the feeling more and more, the company does not really care about employees. The work load has increased with growth as the # of employees has not really grown.

    Advice to Management

    Ask us occasionally about things. With the recent corporate move, we felt completely out of the loop, never consulted and the end result is a new office that many hate.

    I worked at Church & Dwight full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good management team that is honest and transparent with employees. Good work-life balance and the company provides fun events to encourage being social outside of work. Employees are friendly and very helpful. This is not a company for back-stabbing.

    Cons

    Base compensation is lower than average, but the bonus and profit-sharing benefits make up for it. It can feel like the boys club at times. If you don't fit in within the first couple of weeks, you won't make it beyond a year.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for career development.

    I worked at Church & Dwight as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Helpful staff that guides you in the right direction. Can work both as part of a team toward a common goal or work independently on a separate project. The pay is fair and moderate for an intern position.

    Cons

    As an intern for two past summers, I cannot find too much at fault with Church & Dwight and its staff.

    I have been working at Church & Dwight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a solid company to work for. Due to the wide variety of consumer products that are offerred, it creates a good learning opportunity to familiarize oneself with the in's and out's among all of the brand categories.

    Cons

    Extremely fast-paced work environment, which may or may not be a fit for all potential employees depending on one's ability to prioritize and/or rapidly shift gears.
