    Reckitt Benckiser R&D organization in US heading in wrong direction

    Associate (Current Employee) Montvale, NJ

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

    ConsLimited 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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
