Pros

erm if you really desperately need a job then there are worse places.

Cons

Poor pay, no respect toward employees by management. Use of immigrant labour as a lever to push through contract changes. Really opressive atmosphere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You must realise that you are loosing some very good people because of the culture at Reckitts and you have a poor reputation among other companies in the region. Employing people on work visa's because they are the only people you can get to do the jobs for poverty pay is not how to run a company.

    Pros

    The compensation was great. Paid quite well, at least compared to the companies I knew about. The people working here are good workers and very intelligent.

    Cons

    The work can be very stressful at times. It will also prove to be difficult to handle work-life balance. If you want a social life, best to apply elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Pockets of brilliance and high-achieving MBAs that are collaborative, supportive, and inspiring via their actions and thinking. Very tough to find yourself in the company of one of these teams as they are far and few, but if you do get matched up, count your stars. you are very fortunate!

    Cons

    1) homegrown Intl farm system for marketers at the undergrad level means Mgrs with no other real work experience aside from RB. This reinforces the antiquated culture and mentality that everyone else on glass door has mentioned and that RB has been trying to shed - bad attitudes, questionable work ethic, poor treatment of supporting functions and staff, very short term scope with all tactics (no strategy), no sense of how to motivate others or operate in humane civilized fashion, low standard of personal output, always passing the buck, etc.

    2) MBA intern pools continue to suffer. Each year has gotten progressively worse, probably due to poor recruiting efforts at top schools, plus reputation being tainted and reinforced by bad eggs mentioned in point 1. Tenacity, initiative, EQ,charisma, creativity, aptitude, resourcefulness, all are lacking. Give us actual talent we can work with!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on quality MBAs from proven, quality Grad programs
    Don't be so lenient on intl transfers or farm system prodigies; if they are not performing, cut them loose (LT growth > political game)
    Prior work Experience matters; global perspective also matters (global does not mean UK perspective )
    Consider whether current Hr and recruitment practices are best in class, or actually worst in class, when it comes to brand stewardship and developing bench strength.
