    Pros

    If you are driven individual with a level head, then Roquette can offer a world of opportunities. The company as a whole (on a global level) is never content with sitting idle... because of this, opportuniites and career growth can be had, as well as international travel. A change in upper management and the board are prompting the company to make serious positive changes in the recent months. Gurnee plant and Geneva office have great locations being in the Chicagoland area with access to all that Chicago and the surrounding area have to offer.

    Cons

    Being a French-based company, decisions are not always made as fast as you might like and can be a source of frustration. If you can understand the cultural differences, then you could be a good fit. Keokuk plant and office locations are located in a town that has a dwindling population, and is about 1 hour from decent shopping and dining. Because of this, bringing external talent in is difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to the employees, and for management in Geneva... don't forget about Keokuk... visit, be seen. Push for some autonomy from France so that decsions can be made faster... this will allow for faster growth.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Roquette America.

    Interview Details

    It can take a while for HR to work their magic and contact you back. It's not unheard of for this process to take several weeks, or even months. Be patient if you can. Interview process consists of a presentation in front of a group of people that you will be interviewed by individually or in a panel type interview. It's a little intimidating, but it's a good way for the company to get a good picture of the potential candidate.
