    I have been working at RB (Less than a year)

    Pros

    *You will not be micromanaged.
    *You won't be stuck in one focus (unless you want to be a SME) and can grow across your function/business.
    *While other CPG's are going downhill RB is making the right moves for growth.
    *Fast paced. You won't be slowed down by unnecessary processes.
    *You'll get direct feedback and not the fluff other companies may dish out - depending on your personality you may not like that, but I'd rather know where I stand so I can adjust/grow.
    *RB is one of the few CPG's that offer International rotations outside Director level.
    *Diversity and it comes organically, HQ has a great mix of cultures and background.
    *Awesome brands.
    *Generous vacation.

    Cons

    *Other CPG's are pumping a lot of money into office facelifts and pockets of HQ may disappoint depending on where you're coming from.
    *Some teams embrace WFH better than others, the company needs to adjust its mindset on this to help attract/retain top talent. I think they're warming up to it.
    *You can have long hours at times but honestly what company don't you find that in nowadays, especially CPG. If you work in a competitive industry it's the nature of the beast.

    Advice to Management

    Recent changes in company growth/Leadership seem really welcomed by majority. Keep focusing on employee satisfaction and following through on promises.

    Pros

    Good benefits and nothing else

    Cons

    You work 65 hour weeks and get called at night and on weekends. The f bombs fly in texts and emails. You are belittled constantly. Everyone is threatened constantly.

    Advice to Management

    A number of us are keeping recordings, emails and texts. We are preparing a harrasment lawsuit.

    I worked at RB full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of Overtime, great benefits, room for advancement with tenure. Large company with numerous plants, products, and brands. There is always something new coming down the pipeline and steady growth in all the categories: Health, Home, and Hygiene.

    Cons

    Work to Home life is very unbalanced, RB will work you 60+ hours a week, 12+ hours a day. Some stretches of 10-15 days without a day off with 12-hour days mixed in. Great opportunity for a young, single, and ambitious employee.

    Advice to Management

    Top Site priorities should always be:
    Safety
    Quality
    Service
    Cost
    When the order gets changed, the process, products, and employees suffer.

    Pros

    Great compensation package and leadership team.

    I don't feel like there were any Cons working at RB. I love it there! The only reason I left was because the facility closed down and moved the production of Mucinex tablets to the UK>
