Respiratory Sales Specialist (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZNovember 18, 2013
Pros: company expenses, car, free lunches, felxibility
A typical day at work was out in the field calling on all types of physicians to sell all the RB upper respiratory products. I learned so much working at RB that it allowed me to advance in my sales skills, grow in management, and building long lasting relationships. The hardest part of the job is keeping your products above the competition. But the most enjoyable part is keeping up on the competition while building new accounts and keeping existing clients happy.

Long hours due to poor planing and management
Team Resource Manager (Supervisor) (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTAugust 26, 2013
Pros: good healthcare
Cons: pressure on employees to make improvements in areas outside their knowledge or training.
"Carrot and Stick motivation" the culture and values of the company are that machines are assets and people though needed are replaceable. The company has a huge turnover of employees.

There are more productive way to coach peole to want to give their highest leval of contribution to the company they work for.

Their Parsippany office is an absolutely horrible place to work
Systems Administrator (Former Employee), Parsippany, NJJune 25, 2013
Pros: company store
Cons: everything else
The Parsippany building is full of over privileged, self-important, pretentious people with absolutely no concept of respect. People constantly walk all over each other and throw each other under the bus. The environment reminds me a lot of an elementary school where people are constantly telling on each other and going to their managers when they don't get what they want. This company likes to come up with ideas to restructure departments without having any idea why they are doing it and they want it done immediately. This was truly the most miserable job I have ever had in my life. I've seen many people come into RB who are the happiest people and after a few months they are completely emotionally defeated. This place needs a serious attitude adjustment. There is a severe lack of structure and competence, but most of all the overall malicious and negative attitude makes it an unpleasant environment. I would not suggest working here if you value your happiness.

Fun place to work for, with excellent benefits and compensation
Training & Development Coordinator (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXApril 23, 2013
Pros: free exercises facility, free sodas, tea, water.
Cons: worked to many hours
The company over all was a fun place to work for; I worked processing the payroll and assisting in different aspect of the human resource functionality. My co-workers were the best; we always worked as a team. One of the hardest part of the job was seeing my co-worker in the manufacturing area worked to many mandated hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I was part of coordinated surprises for the employees.

Fast paced but intolerable work culture
Marketing (Current Employee), Parsippany, NJFebruary 3, 2013
Pros: fast pace and gain responsibilities from week one
Cons: culture, work hours, and senior management and some colleagues are unbearable
Reckitt is known as a fast based culture where you get significant responsibility from the start, which makes it great to learn many aspects of the business, but at a cost.

Work hours are longer than other CPGs and you're forced by management to meet their deadlines even if the project doesn't need to be accelerated, which means you're constantly changing direction and priorities everyday to the point where almost everything is late. And management in marketing and trade is demeaning. They like to say the culture is direct but there is a big difference between that and behaviors like: throwing people under the bus, talking down to people, and focusing on negative issues primarily. It's very much a top down culture and they bring in Europeans to fill in the top roles so US employees are generally shafted.

I would recommend not coming to work here. Don't be tempted by the salary and bonus.

Operations - BIG responsibility and HUGE pressure job
Operations Team Lead - Household Hygiene Segment (Current Employee), Brandon, MSJanuary 18, 2013
Pros: big mnc - job security and free lunches once you spend > 3 years with the company
Cons: npd/epd, squeeze, xtrim, lean initiatives is very weak when you compare it to big fmcgs like p&g
I would rate it 3/5 considering it a ideal launchpad for a fresh graduate who wants to understand FMCG - Operations business in and out. Gradually as the saturation hits (1-2 years), the company is pretty good in rotating you around in multiple roles and offers flexible "geography based" opportunities as well.
