Chilled out and relaxed are words not often associated with RB (Reckitt Benckiser). This is one place where you need to be on your toes at all times and I kid you not, you’ll never get to see the day when you can say “Oh! There’s no work to do today!” A place not for the faint hearted or for anyone who’s looking for a vacation at work. If you have the drive, if you’re passionate about reaching great heights, then look no further, RB is the place to be.
What started off with a Pre Placement Offer while I was studying at Xavier Institute of Management, I am about to complete a very fruitful period of 3 years at RB. The fast pace at RB has kept me active and attentive towards my surroundings these past 3 years. I have truly learnt a lot and explored a lot of avenues when it comes to business. Having played multiple roles at RB has also contributed in a confidence boost for me as an employee.
A big advantage for me before I joined RB was that I had some previous work experience before my MBA programme. That gave me a larger perspective and helped me overcome the restrictive bookish knowledge we often receive in business schools. Being the cultural secretary at XIMB, I could swiftly adapt to work at RB and manage people in my team with ease when it was needed.
One of my most favourite parts about working at RB is the amount of travelling I have done over the years. I was posted in Andhra Pradesh for quite some time as the Area sales Manager and it was one amazing experience. I got to meet a lot of new people, experienced a new culture and the food was just great! I had to take care of everything, from scratch to the larger business picture. But on the other hand, it is great to work inDelhias it is my hometown. I get to stay home and I’m posted as an Assistant Brand Manager, which entails a much bigger role than as an Area Sales Manager.
Working at RB can also be fun in spite of being a goal and result oriented organisation. We have frequent parties that keep happening to keep the employees entertained and give them regular breaks from work. The general environment at work is not too strict either.
What counts most is the work. If that is being taken care of, things seem pretty chilled out. I can proudly say that I am a happy RB employee and I see myself here for a long time to come.
If you are looking for a challenge everyday, RB is the place to be!
