Buena empresa, los peores mandos, jefes
Customer care (Former Employee) –  Barcelona, EspañaOctober 29, 2017
Es in empresa que está muy desordenada, la desmotivacion continúa de los mandos hace que los empleados no estén a gusto. No cumplen la ley ya q por pedir reducción de jornada por maternidad lo más amable q responden es cuidado q ahí está la puerta. Hay mucha falta de respeto y las contrataciones no son de profesionales si no a ojo

FRAGRANCE DEVELOPMENT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJOctober 2, 2017
As one of the industry leaders, Firmenich is a great place to start and build a career. However, just like any job, cultural fit is key.

Pros - Amazing creativity. Some of the best people in the industry to work with and learn from. Global/travel opportunities. Exposure to the largest CPG companies in the world. Can have some great team members and project experiences.

Improvement Areas - Career development and communication are ongoing challenges. A bit of a "chosen clique" culture does persist, but is evolving.
