    I worked at Sensient as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I can only speak as an intern, but my time at Sentient was fantastic! I worked with some people who have been in the industry ranging from 7-20+ years and they all have so much great knowledge and experience to share. As for training, I just jumped right in and learned from experience, which is exactly how I like to learn. All my questions were answered and more - my coworkers made sure to show me things when they had the chance. I got a thorough view of how a major flavor house runs and made some great connections with the employees in R&D

    Cons

    Little interaction with the business side...Also, it is a little difficult if you are expecting a huge young crowd that likes to go out together since I didn't see as much of that happening. I heard a fair few complaints from full-time about a few top-down decisions, but I will not note that as my personal con since I was not there long enough to experience the repercussions of some of the executive decisions being made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have a more relaxed culture (everyone is in business professional), and maybe even an all-campus event during the summer when it's nice out. The Hoffman Estates campus is beautiful and when you keep the employees happy and engaged in a positive environment the productivity will definitely increase.
