    Pros

    Novozymes gives employees a lot of individual responsibility. They let you "own" your work, which is challenging and exciting. Novozymes also allows for lots of travel opportunities if you are interested in such.

    Cons

    Work/life balance for the US colleagues could be better. I personally worked on vacations (was called, emailed, etc.) and it was expected. Danish colleagues cannot be bothered when they are on holiday.

    Advice to Management

    I would ask that management make the US culture more like the Danish culture or make the Danish culture more like the US. It causes low morale when US employees cannot take time off without interruption from the company. Vacation is supposed to be just that - a vacation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Novozymes.

    Interview

    There was a phone Interview followed by on site interview. Employees were very friendly and casual. Interviewed by multiple people within a large period of time. Seems like getting a position is very competitive.
