Ambiente de Trabajo Agradable - Con Casino para el Almuerzo
ASISTENTE COMERCIAL (Former Employee) –  Bogotá, CUNJuly 29, 2015
Un día de trabajo normal es bajo mucha presión, los gerentes de cuenta solicitaban información todo el tiempo, grabación de pedidos de inmediato y respuestas a los clientes tenían que ser de inmediato. Igualmente, se debían de empacar rotular y enviar las muestras a los clientes para no quedar fuera de los proyectos, ya que el cliente daba fechas exactas de entrega.

Aprendí a trabajar bajo mucha presión, a trabajar en equipo, a comprender a que actividades se les da prioridad y a que actividades se pueden dejar en espera. Aprendí a liderar actividades cuando fue necesario.

La cordialidad y el respeto es una de las características relevantes de esta empresa. La relación e interacción de los gerentes y ejecutivos con sus subalternos y el personal de las áreas de servicios generales son llevados con mucho respeto y cordialidad.

Lo mas agradable de esta empresa es el calor humano, ya que allí se trabaja como si fuera una familia.
Pros
Medicina prepagada con muchos beneficios

Conditionnement, préparateur, cariste (Former Employee) –  Meyrin, GEMarch 27, 2015
La production passe avant la sécurité .
Les formations sont insuffisantes pour des manipulations de produits toxiques et dangereux.
Officellement, la sécurité et le respect de ses règles ont une place importante dans l'entreprise.
Mais, il vous faut vite choisir entre votre rentabilité et les protections individuels pour votre santé .
Les employés finissent par se protéger uniquement pour la manipulation de produits très dangereux...
Aussi, les dispositifs d'aspiration des gaz( important tout de même) sont insuffisant, voir parfois inexistant .
( et oui, ajouté de plus en plus de poste de travail et d'aspiration, sans changer ou ajouter de moteur , fini par provoquer une aspiration très faible...)

La sécurité dans l'entreprise doit protéger réellement les ouvriers , et ne doit en aucun cas être une mesure de prestige et de réputation.

lab assistance (Former Employee) –  Johannesburg, GPMarch 9, 2015
A wonderful place to work at the management is fair and reach out to the technical team, had wonderful and loving co workers who thought me a lot and were very kind and i have developed a good relationship with them. The hardest part about firmenich for me is that you always have to know how to work under pressure and you must be able to learn fast in determining different flavour profiles. I have enjoyed working there and i get another chance i will take it.
Pros
free lunch as an intern
Cons
normal working hours
