    Pros

    Benefits, pay that's all that I can say anything else on the pros line will just get me stared on the Cons

    Cons

    All Brown nosers from top to bottom , if you are NOT in the drinking crowed or the bike riding , or golf crowed then forget it, looks like 90% of the reviews here are from the HR department. which has all the say so like someone posted here. our highest manager position in the company can not get rid of a person HR proved that they have full control, there is no room for advancement so forget that unless you in the buddy system, they will hire their buddies from the outside and then hire two more people to work harder covering for their lack of experience for less pay. It is true that HR forks out a lot of money to keep their reviews high and always brags about it. forget it if you need a pay increase I have been there 6 yrs and never once. if you are on the carpet life is grand. you can watch your slaves work for little money and no respect just as long as you yearly kpi can buy you a new car. HR controls every little thing Management from highest to lowest does not even have half a clue wtf is even going on cLean is a joke get rid of all the walls or just paint the walls with dry erase paint so you can write all over them. all employees will stab you in the back thinking that's going to get there somewhere in advancements but complain and cry when management go outside on a hire and pass them. if you are smarter then they are you are blacked balled. and to be honest I wouldn't even recommend working for this company to my worse enemy. I have seen the way they treat out maintenance techs you are not a tech you are an operator don't touch the machines you will get a write up you run them and operators will tell you what to do when to shut it down and when to work on the equipment, you are now the operators B__ch. ask HR
    and who runs this company Lars? never seen him or any other top Danish mangers on the floor maybe if you get them off their fishing trips or running around their drunken spurts with the uncle sam outfits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fire everyone of you HR and you Management team HIRE all new lets not leave out cLean you can cLean them right out the door as well

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Travel is paid for. Bonuses.

    Cons

    Hard work is not recognized. No respect from supervisors/managers. Be warned: you are fed to the sharks- no training provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire supervisors/managers who are neutral. Ensure that when you hire supervisors they are professional and willing to help.
