I have been working at RB full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good line leads. Overtime available.

Cons

The company need a manager with common sense. Today, a new protocol was implemented: workers are fired with no warning for opening the door for other employees. Keep in mind, over half of the employees here don't have access cards. There is a breakroom/lobby area and the factory proper requires another access card. "For our saftey" workers aren't allowed to wait for their shift to start in the building. This rule was implemented in 102 degree weather!

Rules like this are more and more common. This was a great company, but the management thinks they can screw the workers and help the bottom line.

Advice to Management

Use common sense!

    Pros

    If you like to be challenged in a constantly changing environment, this is a good place to be. Fast-paced with quick decision making. Advancement potential if you have international mobility. Exposure to the workings of leading consumer products company that can enhance your resume.

    Cons

    Very lean organization, expect to hit the road running with little or no training. Don't expect any work/life balance. Do expect to put in hours when you get home at night and weekends. This is a results-driven company so don't expect to get any sympathy for putting in the time - everyone is in the same boat. You can thrive there if you can handle this downside.

    Advice to Management

    Assess efforts regarding your lean initiatives. It's been too aggressive in certain functions, including the plants and distribution centers. This leads to high turnover and loss of skilled contributors to the business.
