    It is a decent company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Waukesha, WI

    ProsBenefits for full-time employees, large company, well known name in many industries, vacation sick and holiday paid time off is available.

    ConsInequality, preference to certain individuals, unfairly biased employees, benefits are not given to all employees equally, communication and work life balance is inadequate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent in order to allow open communication with ALL employees. This should includ the lower level employees and lower level managment, not just upper management.

    Danisco was a good place to work with great people and very good benefits and values.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New Century, KS

    ProsGood benefits and support, big on education and moving ahead, seem to care about the employees and environment. Team work was important and interdepartmental relations were very good. A good place to work.

    ConsWith Danisco being a Danish company many differences can be found between US ideas and Danish. Still a great place to work over all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTom Knutzen is doing a great job. He has brought Danisco through some hard times and they seem to be growing even in the economy downturn.

    Be wary of joining Danisco US; your experience very much depends on the department that you will join.

    Manager Business Systems (Current Employee) Palo Alto, CA

    ProsThe Genencor division was one of the best places to work in America. Since the aquisition of Genencor by Danisco, many of the old Genencor values are being destroyed. The benefits and perks and the superb co-workers are the best reason to work at Genencor division, Danisco.

    ConsThe culture clash between the top-down hierarchical, 'do as you are told' Danish management and the expectation that being a loyal supporter of the status quo is more important that innovation and risk taking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInnovation and growth comes from the bay area employees, embrace change!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
