    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Church & Dwight full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good long term compensation at manager level if you've been here a while - although some benefits have reduced to save money and stock appreciation has slowed in last couple years.
    Given lots of responsibility at all levels and will gain incredible experience.

    Cons

    New management team out of touch and doesn't seem to care about employees.
    CEO too focused on minutiae vs. setting strategy and driving the company. Doesn't inspire, lead or motivate at all.
    Little faith in much of the executive team.

    Advice to Management

    Don't turn a blind eye to your employee base. Management is so focused on improving their image that their begging employees to talk about how good c&d is on Glassdoor yet they don't focus on making it good. Improve the company internally and the positive reviews will come! Employees need to be viewed as valuable assets and not resources because they're losing the good ones.
    HR isn't trusted so providing feedback is difficult - create an anonymous feedback opportunity to understand how our employees truly feel (or are they worried about what they'll hear?)
