I worked at RB

Pros

Good Benefits, 401K, Medical, Dental, Vacation, holidays, etc.

Cons

Little to no recognition for a job well done. Personal initiative is never appreciated, even though the company claims to be interested in individual ideas. Quick to layoff, regardless of company profitability. Does not consider cutting costs through decreased raises, bonuses, trips, and fancy sales meetings. Would rather cut heads than find alternative methods of saving money. Poor work-personal life balance, 60 hour work weeks typical without any offer of comp time. Human Resource Dept is untrustworthy, they do not support the employee but senior management. The employee cannot share any issues or problems witht HR, which is very inappropiate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Monitor your individual Directors to assure they are doing the right thing. Put employees first!

    Great company for your first job out of MBA school, but not the best to work later in your career.

    Pros

    Training at early stages in your career like right out of MBA school. You get great general managment experience, heavy P&L and analyitical experience.

    Cons

    Once you've worked at other companies, you realize that Reckitt is an intense environment, you are expected to be married to your job. Working until 9 or 10pm on a regualr basis is normal. Also, unless you are working in the Food division, the brand categories are very boring and not very exciting. There are TV media budgets on most brands, but shooting a AirWick or LYSOL ad is not too exciting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the work-life balance.

    Excellent place to develop your CV/resume before heading elsewhere.

    Pros

    Strong business performance with generally good upside in bonus pay - just not in the US. Flat structure. Hands on responsibility

    Cons

    Results are what count people don't

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more focus on career development. Continuous employee turnover will damage longer term business performance.
