I worked at AMORIM CORK AMERICA full-time (More than 8 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
To work for Amorim, the world greatest company in manufacturing natural cork stoppers for wine closures, has been a great challenge in my life. At the same time it was rewarded by the social environment, health benefits and later on having access to company car. The research job as a chemist was realized in a dynamic team and the administration board always willingly to help financially, thrusting in us and investing when necessary. That is very important. I gratefully look back on that times when I was employed there and feel myself sorry not having served the company with greater emphasis.
Training time is very short. The tasks can very and change very soon. But that is the problem of our time. Even in the R & D world, you have to be flexible and work towards new ideas. We did many times, but the worst scene is "on the floor" - at factory level the bigger ideas of innovation couldn't always be implied because changes are expensive. The sensory problems with the mould flavour in corks is gone by now and almost "extinct". The ROSA system as patent is a very strong treatment - the first one and even the best one!
Advice to Management
Please, Amorim Cork folks in America, talk with your mother company in Portugal not to forget the "heroes" which once upon the history helped them to solve the biggest problems but ask them how they feel now ...
