    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.
