Fast Pace but enjoyable

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The culture at Reckitt is very fast paced but enjoyable (if you like a fast paced environment). Lots of opportunity to learn and meet great people on the way.

Fantastic place to work

Fantastic teams, fantastic place to work, but if you're an FTC wanting to become permanent - be prepared for delays in communication about comtract extensions or permanent opportunities.


Culture, development, support


Poor HR, less priority given to FTC employees

Fast Pace and friendly company

Reckitt is a fast paced company without good working-life balance.Its possible to build your career in the company but you need to work hard on expanding internal net-working. Salary average/below average - Good Bonus!

Okay place to work

As per department., work environment is quite toxic. Pay isn't great as well. The Research and Development arm seems a lot better place to work though.

R&D Asisstent

Management were open and easy to reach, if other team members are off, your workload is adjusted accordingly and the work itself wasn't too challenging, just time consuming. The work place culture is clique, but people are usually friendly and fun to chat with, and open to help if not too busy.


Good work life balance


hours can be long and pay is low

Gone downhill

Due bad management decisions, it's gone downhill real quick in QC. Quite a toxic work environment lately. No care whatsoever about lower level employees and their well-being.

Great place to work, good pay

I was agency to begin with then was taken on but was a great place to work overall. The pay is good for the hours you do and you feel part of a team instead of just a number.

Generally a good place to work, with some caveats

I have worked for Reckitt for a number of years and find it generally a good place to work. Having had other roles in the pharmaceutical industry, I find the work here more suited to me, and the people are more approachable. There is a certain level of flexibility that is appreciated. However, I do find the company very jargon-heavy, with a lot of business talk that seems a bit 'overkill' at times and a little impersonal. For many roles, there is no defined career path. There is a lot of talk about future careers and objective-setting, but actually moving up in the company seems to be limited to a select few, which has been a source of great frustration. I have found myself previously in the same role for several years, with more responsibilities given to me but this has not been reflected in my pay or job title. There is much talk of diversity and inclusion, and mental health, but these seem almost like 'tickbox' exercises and seem to lack authenticity. However, despite these grumbles, Reckitt is a good company to work for and I enjoy my role and the culture in general.

Definitely a company that offers the world when hiring but doesn't appreciate its staff. The only thing that makes this company bearable is the money. But even still it's not enough. Reckitts used to be about the people.

Toxic work culture, unsupportive and dishonest management

Top level management won’t own up to anything or take timely decisions. The constant change in top management including the CEO and various heads of departments/functions proves that. Success is defined by how best you can blame other teams or your own teams and subordinates. Risk management is extremely poor with the new head of risk and assurance totally out of his depths. Overall, the typical career span is 1-2 years at best for most. AVOID!

Hard work

Great place to work thanks to the shopfloor teams and the conpany has great values- most not followed in Hull. Exhausting and unrewarding at times . Expectation at certain levels is to work a minimum of 1 hour of unpaid overtime per day.

Good company but really bad environment/management at Derby site

Great company values which are not adhered to at Derby site, unfortunately. But really good global career progression opportunities if you do as they say, so definitely not suitable for an individual who wants to be themselves. No work - life balance, expected to do extra hours without any compensation or acknowledgement. Very unprofessional HR!

Project Engineer

Poor Management, Favouritism, Toxic Culture, staff talking behind each other's back, no mentoring or development for young professionals/graduates. Bringing in personnel without the means to train them due to existing staff being overworked with too many projects.


Poor management and career development

Alright place

management is terrible. Everyone is climbing up the corporate ladder, getting there by standing on those below. Work is terrific if you never let the office/lab politics bother you.

Pays well, poor moral

Management and planning don’t communicate, management push production and volume and minimise maintenance. Poor at organising staff, low moral on site
