    I worked at Givaudan for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great company. Largest in the industry.

    Cons

    Don’t understand the management there. Why do you belittle the good employees? Not sure what kind of employees this place likes. If your a good worker,great attendance and willing to go a little extra to ensure a satisfied customer. Maybe you have a better chance elsewhere. This place is hard to satisfy.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the good employees better. If all your satisfied with is so so workers then don’t bother hiring the good ones.

    I worked at Givaudan

    Pros

    Nice non managerial staff, good amenities

    Cons

    Cutthroat boys club in BL NJ. Their way or the highway. Never have I heard so much promise on the way in, only after a week to find out it's all BS. Insecure little tyrants with small man's complex rule unchecked and not only unpunished, but continually promoted and rewarded. They work underlings to death. No lean, no process, no sense. Just threats, stupid buzz words that supposedly show progress, and no time to do it right once, but plenty of time to do it wrong multiple times. Untrained, undereducated, unprofessional blowhards rule the roost. Run. Run like you're on fire. No potential. No future. No way.

    Advice to Management

    None. Since you seem to support this behaviour, keep the bullying thugs you have until they die.
