Pros & Cons

  • Ownership over big projects! Continuously pushing me to be at my best through support and training. Being able to still add immense amounts of value to the team despite being in a junior role.
  • The working culture and the close-knit teams that do not operate on a hierarchy.
  • People - great culture that is fun and young
  • Love the fast-paced nature of the work, strong ownership, lots of opportunity, constantly learning, varied work, fun culture and team.
  • The rate of career progression is unparalleled in the industry. Managers are very motivating, work events are great and the business is very fast-paced.
  • Steep learning curve initially.
  • The hours - the nature of the business means that you are working relatively long hours, but the office is a fun place to be so time doesn't drag.
  • Being in control means there's no one else to blame when things go wrong.
  • The speed at which we work - exceptionally fast-paced.
  • Workload can be slightly overwhelming and the processes can definitely be a bit more streamlined.

Not afraid to promote people they see with good potential, even if they are young. Promote people who have worked hard and been with the business for a long time/started on the grad program.

Culture
Fostered a strong culture of high performance and achievement. Increasingly focused on the after work/ out of work culture; more initiatives built around purpose, sustainability, charity and social pillars which is greatly appreciated. Really encourages socializing amongst colleagues!

Diversity
Reckitt's commitment to diversity has really shown over the last couple of months with a panelist during Mardi Gras and a recent company call about Women in the Workplace where they encouraged open conversations about pay, leave, gender gaps in departments and overall how they are portrayed in the workplace. It's a Work In Progress but it's promising to see these conversations being held here at Reckitt.

Satisfaction
Get to manage the entire portfolio of our biggest brand. Massive variety in day-to-day; from financial reviews, discussing market research, new product development, advertising and comms development or pitching to our retailers, every day can be a new challenge

Management
Really satisfied with my manager. She's great and really supportive. Even my previous manager as an intern. They really ensure that you are able to complete the work given to you and if anything, they are always checking in to see how you're performing. Feedback is key, there's a check in session with my manager and the team manager at the end of every month to track my progress, exploring where I could potentially move next or what kind of projects I will be working on after my current one. Everyone is really accessible.

Office Work Environment

Office Work Environment
Modern renovated office in a central city location which is very appealing within the industry. "Dress for your day" dress code which is extremely liberating. Also helped accommodate WFH very well by providing lots of technology and vouchers to allow us to build an extremely productive WFH setup.

Recruitment
8.2
Recruitment
The first stage in the interview process involved online logical reasoning assessments, which if successful was followed by a video interview. This involved preparing and answering 5 questions with time limits of between 45-90 seconds. The phone interview followed, then the assessment centre and individual interview.

Not ideal at a graduate level but the quick progression makes much more appealing salaries attainable quite quickly

Training

Training
The majority of your training will happen on the job - you get thrown into the deep end so its sink or swim. Your colleagues that have been there before you will be a big support though and there are lots of training available to you if you need them.

Work Hours

Work Hours
Very flexible in terms of what hours you work and where you work them from. There are periods where you will need to work longer hours but usually off-set by quieter periods where you can steal some time back

Sustainability

Sustainability
Commitments to work with WWF and Rural Raid with our Finish Water Waste collaboration. Reckitt is really recommitted to reducing their environmental footprint through different initiatives ran through the year. I know that they're also actively trying to minimise plastic usage and turn to more recyclable and reusable packaging which is a great effort.
