    I have been working at Reckitt full-time

    Pros

    - Culture of entrepreneurship with lots of opportunities for personal ownership - Opportunity to work on category-leading brands - Good vacation package with additional “freedom” hours, summer flex hours and annual conference vacation in South America - Strong best-in-class in-house digital CRM and hospital expertise

    Cons

    - Two very different cultures and employee demographics: younger RB Hygiene, and older, more legacy RB Health-Mead Johnson Nutrition which are run as two legally separate companies - Pre-Covid expectation of monthly travel back and forth from Kanata office and Mississauga - Lack of work/life balance with senior leadership also working around the clock - High expectations, and no training or buddy system for new staff who are expected to hit the ground running - Aggressive company culture can be toxic at times. Common feeling that company is more focused on p&ls than the people - Minimal opportunities on the Health/Nutrition business for career growth, as people leave, work is redistributed or people are replaced with many temporary contact workers, many becoming third parties paid through agency BAM - Lower payscale than CPG market rates in Health/Nutrition, even lower than Hygiene

    I have been working at Reckitt full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn alot, good exposure to cross functional teams

    Cons

    Horrible work-life balance, highly recommend not joining at Analyst/Associate level. You will likely be doing the job of 2-3 people whereas others will be promoted and given half your work due to favouritism. Promotions aren't based on experience/merit/years completed in role. Do you research before accepting an offer, talk to existing/former employees.
