    I have been working at Henkel full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits including flexi time. Most people are very nice to work with.

    Cons

    Career advancement is not based on skill and/or expertise but rather on how you are perceived... very image driven. As long as you stroke your bosses ego and keep management happy, you will do well. Hard work and loyalty are not rewarded, resulting in a highly demotivated workforce. A lot of micro management and a lack of trust. Current employee review process is a joke and does nothing for morale, resulting in high turnover of staff. A lot of processes need improvement. It’s time management wakes up and start listening to their direct reports.

    Pros

    Used to be a great place in the Loctite years sadly no more, money and profits are their God and they will walk on anyone to get it. Good pay and conditions.

    Cons

    Management are an absolute disgrace and should be all sacked immediately, The senior managers are total BULLY'S and they hire people that will also do their bullying and harassing and hide behind the HR department which is led by a total clown controlled by one of the senior managers. DISGRACEFUL.
