Good company to work for, though you must control your career development.

Product Manager (Former Employee)
Princeton, NJ

I worked at Church & Dwight full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood 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.

ConsBase 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 Senior ManagementProvide more opportunities for career development.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Summer Internships

Human Resources Intern (Former Employee)
Princeton, NJ

I worked at Church & Dwight as an intern for more than a year

ProsHelpful 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.

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

Overall satisfied with all aspects of the company.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Church & Dwight

ProsEmployees are empowered to make decisions and encouraged to challenge the norm. When delivering results, employees are recognized and promoted accordingly. Fair company to work for who try to make sure employees are balancing work and home life.

ConsChurch & Dwight is a lean and dynamic work environment, so you have to be able to adapt and be very flexible. If not, you will find yourself scrambling to try to keep up with the pace. Also, salary is fair, but not more than industry average.

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, very good job leading and communicating company goals throughout the company. Company does a good job trying to take care of its employees. Bonus program could be improved.

A good company, but too lean

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Church & Dwight

ProsGood teams, great ancillary perks - summer hours, employee giving fund, supplemented weight loss groups. Fair salary but not enough support staff.

ConsToo lean means that you can't move that much. They don't promote you unless someone dies or retires and people stay FOREVER!

Advice to Senior ManagementWorkers at Church & Dwight work hard - everyone rolls up their sleeves and digs in which is great but people want recognition through advancement and when you can't offer that, you lose them.
