Please tell us what's great about working at Church & Dwight.
Church & Dwight is a successful company with strong brands and products that people value. It’s a professional environment where the work you do has a direct impact on what matters to the company, our customers, and shareholders. I have had a great experience here.
Please tell us what's great about working in your function or department.
Working in IT is great because it matters. Our company relies on technology not only to operate but as strategic lever to add value to our top and bottom line. My role is right in the middle of helping to define and ensure that this value is realized – and that’s exciting.
Please tell us about your on-boarding experience.
Three thoughts come to mind - comprehensive, effective, and an overall positive experience. It’s always a lot of information to consume but I think we do a good job. I believe the ‘Connections’ program is probably the most valuable aspect of our on-boarding program. Where each month all new hires are exposed to a different part of the organization and is able to see & hear directly from senior management in those department how each function works and its role in delivering results for the company.
What skills/competencies have you developed since working at C&D?
Many. Two that come to mind are priority setting and communication. Church & Dwight is a lean, fast-paced environment. There are is always more to do and say than time permits. So, success (and sanity) is dependent on knowing the most important things to do and say. So, I’ve really had to hone the competencies in my first two years here.
In your opinion, how would you describe the C&D culture?
It’s a culture of results. It’s about getting the job done. It’s a professional environment based on mutual respect and integrity. It’s also a place where ‘the grey’ is seen as an opportunity for creativity and action. If you want routine and slow pace – you won’t find it here.
