Toxic Culture
Scientist (Current Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJJuly 27, 2016
Toxic culture that breeds insecurity and fear. Management is there to protect themselves and not the company. I would think twice before working there.

Fine Fragrance Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJJanuary 17, 2016
Firmenich was a very welcoming company that taught me a lot about the world of fine fragrance. There were a lot of opportunities I was given to excel that would not have been there in other companies.

Commercial Assistant (Current Employee) –  Midrand, GPOctober 26, 2015
+ 8 hour working day. You need a bar one!

I learnt about the importance of flavours and fragrances.

Management makes all the decisions ,is not easily approachable and KPI's and development plans are not discussed with employees.

The hardest part of my job is added responsibilities without a title and a salary to go with the responsibilities.

Learning new things.
