Last assignment was perfect fit; enjoyed colleagues and assignment
Global Senior Business Controller (Former Employee) – Plainsboro, NJ – June 28, 2018
My ideal assignment would be a business and/or innovation controller in a food/fragrance house. My typical day consisted of: (1) the generation of ad hoc revenue, gross margin, vitality, and general operating expense analysis. (2) the development, validation, risk assessment, and tracking of financial performance of global innovation and creation projects I essentially self-governed with a great deal of latitude. Projects were conducted by cross-functional teams, but tended to be more risk-averse than other companies with which I have worked. The most enjoyable part of the job was its multi-cultural and diverse focus, as well as its focus upon environmental sustainability. The most difficult part was global interaction with colleagues in many time zones.
Excellent 401K match, profit sharing, generous personal leave
Customer Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Plainsboro, NJ – August 2, 2018
I enjoyed the years I worked for this company. The manager was not always fair and did not treat everyone the same way. After I had my first child, my husband and I decided it was best for me to stay home and raise our daughter.
Good Pay with benefits. Plenty of overtime offered. It was a Very STRESSFUL work environment. Lack of space in Shipping & Receiving departments made it difficult to do your job effectively. poor Planning in production. This was still one of the best employers that I worked for.
I do like my job, but the management, and supervisors do not know how to manage the personnel as well as mentoring those who want to advance, and take every chance they get to discourage or try to block any advancement for their employees. They hold everyone to different standards. They do not know how to use or appreciate the human capitol. Many people have to leave, then come back after a few years to make advancement in their field.
Customer Service Rep (Current Employee) – Plainsboro, NJ – March 30, 2018
A typical day at work includes processing new orders; checking existing orders and speaking to customers regarding any issues. I've learned a lot of different things at Firmenich including SAP. The hardest part of the job is being micro-managed and lack of advancement opportunities, especially if you don't have a college degree. The most enjoyable part of the job are my relationships with my clients that I've had for 15+ years. The company also has events for employee appreciation that are very nice.
