Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I worked at Givaudan

Pros

Generous salary and friendly co-workers

Cons

Need more automated database

Current Contractor - IS Manager

I have been working at Firmenich for more than a year

Pros

Wonderful team spirit, great place to work, really try to take care of their employees for example with a conciergerie service for employees, great lunch facilities (healthy food menu). Everyone at... Firmenich is willing to help and the spirit is more collaborative than it is competitive.

Cons

Compley and ineffective organizational structure. The company hires many consultants and contractors who act as permanent employees in to avoid increasing headcount, some who have been there for... years. There are many benefits, internal processes etc only geared towards permanent staff. In fact at any given point in time they do not know who is truly working for them. It is a false economy and a very costly way to add resources. Getting to the right person to do anything is very cumbersome.

Advice to Management

Make it one Firmenich, and simplify the organizational structure in order to grow.
