    I worked at Church & Dwight (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They make good products
    The people I worked with directly were good people

    Cons

    Very low paying job ($16/hour, no vacation, poor benefits)
    Poor and unfair treatment and segregation of contract workers.

    I accepted a job here as a contractor after graduating college. The upper management segregated the contractors from the rest of the group a few months into the job. When they have town halls, contractors have to take the day off with no pay. We were not allowed to partake in office parties or anything that involved food, giveaways, or interaction with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people equally.

    Pros

    none that come to mind but need to hit the minimum. Newer HQ is nice but as toxic as 3 mile island

    Cons

    Horrible managers that masquerade as leaders, surprising transactional and without understanding of the value of strategic partnerships. Do not settle for this company! Read the other reviews on this site and move on to a company you will be actually be proud to work for.

    Advice to Management

    the entire organization is screaming Retire already and stop managing like its 1996. you are a horrible leader and an even worse human being

    Pros

    Good products - with excellent branding to work with.

    Cons

    R&D Management maintains too many layers of management to protect themselves when issues come up. They bury the front line engineers to save their own jobs. They create a hostile work environment for their employees. I've seen the director thru product across the room to an employee when he was unhappy with the project progress. Not a place for long term employment, only short term get your experience and go. High turnover rate in the engineering departments.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your office more and get involved with your engineers more and show some support.
    Get rid of the dead wood in the R&D Engineering group!

    The pros were 2012 2013 ever since new management came and sexual harassment is ok or having a hostile work environment is ok this place is not worth my time.
