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

Good experience, great name
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.

Laboratory Technician (Temp) (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NYAugust 10, 2017
Firmenich was warm and very welcoming. Everyone worked together to complete a project to keep the job afloat. I learned working there,it is never a wrong answer by asking a question, a wrong answer is not asking at all. management are understanding willing to work with you schedules, and very considerate. The part of the day was trying to meet a deadline but running out of material to complete your task. The enjoyable part of the day is when the perfumer is satisfied.
Pros
Learning different areas of compounding
Cons
You can make mistakes unknowingly
