    Pros

    Great group of diverse experiences to learn from. There's so much opportunity to learn new things. You wear many different hats in your role.

    Cons

    Not enough people to do all the work. New management in place where the culture may change. Perks used to be good.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, which are a good hook to attract new employees for their high turn over.

    Cons

    -Too obsessed for P&L that they don't care about customers and consumers; continue squeezing to increase GM even when this means getting a lower quality product/packaging for consumers.
    -So internal focused that in 2016 didn't grow sales, only GM for saving money from trade spend, not a smart and sustainable long term strategy.
    - Lack of deep shopper understanding.
    - No training for new hires (learn it on the fly and be pressured for it), no work life balance, you can work all days and weekends until late however if you don't fall into their politics, they would threat you to fire you, that's what they call "motivation".
    - Managers have no people skills and they would stab you in the back instead of giving you an authentic and timely constructive feedback.
    - Promotions depends on like-ability or being there for a long time to have a "relationship" with the boys club. "Good" is not "good enough" depending on your likeabilty and politics.

    Advice to Management

    -Do something to value your employees and improve manager's leadership to care about their direct reports.
    -Focus innovations based on shopper insights instead of a survey of ideas.
    -Have some real values and culture.
    - Invest in updating internal systems.

    Pros

    Compensation - that's the only way to try and hire someone to work in a chaotic setting

    Cons

    No process
    Under resourced in certain areas which causes for lack of excellence and follow through
    Poor vision
    Silo's
    Finger pointing

    Lack of proper strategic planning
    Band aids for everything and no real fixes
    The list goes on and on
    Zero work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Change the ways of working or youll keep losing some amazing internal talent
    Fix problems with real solutions rather than just placing band aids
    Listen to your employees and change the game or you'll never get better

    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.
