    I worked at DSM full-time for more than 5 years


    very customer focused, work life balance, compensation, talent management programs, very high integrity and code of ethics.


    decision making is not as quick as it should be, office culture can be too formal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add leaders from different regions to key decision making process because this is the only way to have a truly global perspective.

    Negotiation Details
    It was a very simple offer/negotiation process. I believe they came out with the best offer straight out of the gate. From a total compensation perspective (base, bonus, benefits) it was more generous than I expected. Even if just from the base and bonus, it was very competitive.
