Horrible company
Production line operator (Former Employee), Saint Peters, MOSeptember 6, 2014
The company is out for themselves & do not value any of their employees, I worked there for three years at the same pay rate with no benefits as a temporary. They talked me up saying they would hire me full time & asked me to run production lines for less than what a full time employee made. The overall condition of the plant is crowded & filthy, & – more... although the job is an easy one the management of the plant drives you mentally unstable. – less

Fast pace company
Packaging Production Manager/ Safety Manager (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UtahJuly 17, 2014
Pros: good benefits and growth opportunities
Cons: fast pace
Work is centered around projects, every day you pick up where you left of and take on the latest project.

I learned about driving projects with management intervention only when failing to deliver.

Management strives to be the best and is hands off until project time lines slip, then they support as much as is required.

Co-workers can be helpful – more... for information but everyone is too busy working on their projects to work together.

The constant push for more and better can be overwhelming at times. Can consume your life if you let it.

There are some brilliant minds and good personalities to work with. – less

Very relax laid back always has something going on for their employees
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee), Parsippany, NJJune 26, 2014
Pros: freedom, nice cafe staff
Cons: to many new pple
Like the place but the managers leave so often not to many people know whats going on or really how to do things.
Come in no later then 10 am. Go through my e-mails, route and fix invoices, have meetings, lunch in the cafe, pay bills and wire money.
Management can be ok, the workers are polite and sometimes social.
Love the amount of freedom they give – more... as long as I do my 8 hours or more if needed the manager are happy.
Hardest part is not getting a response right away because there are so many people that do a small part of the company it can take a while to hear back especially if they are away and only one doing that part of the job. – less

Lost my job
Business Analyst III and Document Control Manager (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTMay 17, 2014
Pros: learning experiences and challenges
Cons: lack of corporate support and lay offs
I worked for Schiff Nutrition for almost 8 years prior to their purchase by Reckitt Benckiser. Once acquired I was told that most all of my department would be laid off and that if I stayed through the end of 2013 I would get a severance. My 9 months was spent watching people being laid off each month and having to pick up the slack left by their removal. – more... I was one of the last ones to go.
I enjoyed my position there, however, and found new challenges and learning experiences on a daily basis. – less

Productive, hands on, something different virtually everyday
Operator, Monitor (Former Employee), Saint Peters, MOApril 23, 2014
I would get arrive at the factory, enter through the side entrance, head to the team room to get the assignments for the production line, for example our line was always either line 10 or 13 whichever one was working and when both lines were down, we were on line 11. On 10, i was usually capping bottles at a fast pace, or tapping up boxes at the other – more... end; on 13, I was either packaging bottles, tapping boxes or stacking boxes for the people people who were packaging; and on line 11, I generally was placing bottles on the the conveyor belt or making the empty boxes at the other end. Then there are days when we do nothing but rework which is only when a previous shift got a batch packaged or filled incorrectly and we have to fix it. The most enjoyable time is when we have down time and I can just talk among my coworkers. The hardest part of the job is definitely when the line is going 100 bottles a minute and you only have 2 or 3 people packaging and the taper keeps jamming and the bottles keep flowing but one part of the line is not functioning. Management is really good, they work with us on the line and they have good knowledge and teaching skills and very approachable. – less

Overall not horrible
Material Handler (Former Employee), Salt Lake CityApril 11, 2014
Pros: easy work, laid-back work environment
Cons: hard to get hired on
The only position I could get in this company was on graveshift. The work itself in the Blending department was simple, although accuracy was crucial, which was hard to maintain during the night when your naturally tired. The people that worked there were generally happy and seemed to like the simplicity.

Depends on What You're Looking For
Finance Manager (Former Employee), Parsippany, NJMarch 25, 2014
Pros: compensation is decent
Cons: culture, management, top-heavy organization
Reckitt is a very unique company. Very rarely will you ever hear about an individual retiring from here, and there's a reason for that. The company culture is one that promotes fast-moving individualistic behavior. Successes are singular, which can be an issue.

Turnover has been an issue I have noticed more here than at any other place I've worked – more... and at this current juncture, with three years experience, I am considered a veteran. – less

Nice work environment but was only a temporary contract position.
Contract Technical Writer (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTFebruary 6, 2014
I liked working at Reckitt Benckiser. The management along with the co-workers were extremely nice people and easy to communicate to. The negative issues were this is just a temporary contract position which ended the last day of January 2014. Also, in this position I had no benefits and the pay was low - $21 per hour
