    I have been working at RB full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ever changing projects, A diverse opportunities available within one site. People are great. Great resources and freedom to explore.

    Cons

    Fast pace is not for everyone. Managing multiple projects. R&D is seen as a service group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider upgrading the facility

    Current Employee - R&D Associate in Montvale, NJ

    I have been working at RB full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of challenge and opportunity. Good salary. Jobs with huge scope and very few processes to hold you back.

    Cons

    Very few of the senior management stay in one position long enough to become fully versed in their businesses and so decision making can appear random and reactive. Projects run at breakneck speed which can lead to mistakes. Short term outlook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on choosing the right developments instead of just running mediocre stuff fast.

    I have been working at RB

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits.
    Opportunities for advancement to Europeans, and young internationally mobile Americans.
    Technically-limited can advance to R&D management.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to older American employees, most of whom have been forced out.
    Style favored over substance.
    Two tier employee system is actually acknowledged and supported by management.
         Upper class - 'High Potentials', Europeans
         Lower class - the rest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest about the impact of your 'HiPo' policy. There is way too much emphasis on style and presentation. We need scientists with more technical depth and experience, but the ones hiring know more about style and politics than science and technology.
