    I worked at RB full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Numerous opportunities to make a change in the organization . There are many ways to shine. Good technition jobs as you can work whay you like. Expect long hours. Bonuses can be great. Good place to start your career but would not suggest growing in the organization unless you plan to sacrifice your time and family.

    Cons

    Management to management relationship at times borders on abusive. This can be seen in multiple levels and and multiple functions of the organization. Work-life balance for those and Manufacturing a myth. You will not be able to use the four weeks of vacation the company gives you walking through the door. Expect to work 6 days a week and to be available 7 days a week even up through higher positions of manufacturing management.

    Advice to Management

    Work on company culture. I believe this is being initiated but not in enough time to keep some of the higher performing workers that have been leaving the organization.

    The company offers great salaries to its employees.
    Benefits for individuals is great, not sure about a family plan.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your team and understand that your employees have families.

    I have been working at RB (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    RB is poised to become a world class consumer health and wellbeing company. They are actively investing in it's employees, and identifying ways to keep their top- especially investigating how to retain women. They launched a fantastic maternity program, with 16 weeks fully paid, and the option to take up to a year with job security. Management generally invests in their staf, and works to propell employees forward, and advance.

    Cons

    Advancement generally requires relocation, although they are trying to reduce this. Smaller teams offer little opportunity to advance, however you can still be compensated well with salary if you fight for it. Outside of marketing, and formulation, you will have little room to explore a career path.
