      Pros

      There is a team oriented and very supportive environment in my business unit. My team members care . You are given opportunity to engage in many different projects.

      Cons

      We are a lean corporation. We wear many hats: for me it was a great opportunity to learn as a new employee,. However, for many professionals with many years experience at larger corporations this is a very big shift(We roll up our sleeves).

      I worked at Church & Dwight full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Clean place, has cafeteria and generally good people to work with. Great work life balance, depending on department of course

      Cons

      Youre expected to learn your job through osmosis, because the management will avoid training you at all costs. There is no training program, you have to bug everyone around you until you catch up. If youre into that sort of thing, you'll love it, but there is no later reward for all that stress and hard work. Not recommended.

      Advice to Management

      Force management to develop a training program so people wont hate their jobs by the time they learn them.

        Managers and Sr Managers are chosen based on favoritism or ignorance rather than competence.

        Advice to Management

        Take a close look at managers and see which have a high turnover of employees. More often than not, there is a problem with that manager.

        Pros

        Good financial management No history of layoffs Approachable CEO Fast action

        Cons

        Employees do not really trust upper management have their best interest. Some really talented managers and employees have left. 'Groupthink' is becoming the norm as people do not want to bear the brunt of the blame.

        Advice to Management

        Consider doing formal employee feedback on their managers (middle to even VP level) to understand some of the key frustrations.
