    Pros

    Huge amount of upward mobility and constantly challenges you to be better than your best.

    Very prone to moving people around, everyone expects things in a short amount of time.

    Try to make sure the fundamentals are taught before expecting too much of newer employees.

    Pros

    Speed of decision making, focus on results, commercial orientation and marketing focus

    Cons

    Culture is not for everyone, you need to constantly be open to feedback and change. Relatively short-term focus.

    Advice to Management

    Continue improving on what sets RB apart: commercial focus and speed of decision making. Recent initiatives to improve marketing communication are sign of a good change and shift to longer term planning.

    Pros

    Incredible level of ownership for your business and encouragement to think and act in an entrepreneurial manner. If you want to work for a world leading FMCG company but feel like you are leading your own start up, RB is for you.

    Cons

    Fast, action focused culture is not for everyone. Wall flowers will not fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on fewer, bigger and better plans and brands
