I have been working at Brenntag full-time

Pros

Its great to be a part of the biggest distributor of chemicals in the world.

Cons

The company is too conservative and risk-averse.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pls try to take more risk in Indian operations. I am sure that Brenntag would be in the top 2 of chemical distribution in india very shortly.

    I worked at Brenntag full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent health insurance
    Some outstanding coworkers

    Cons

    Bully management, insufficient staffing, no diversity in management or attempt to diversify. Outdated computers and office equipment or lack of equipment. No vacation payout when leaving, but impossible to use vacation because of workload. No ethics policy. Don't see the value in change. It feels like a 1950s workplace mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to and show respect to all staff. High turnover in some locations reflects serious problems with management. Support work/life balance. Provide better working conditions for employees like breaks, heat, air conditioning, and clean warehouses. Do not tolerate unethical practices or bullying.

    Pros

    Good suppliers like DuPont, good products to offer to the market

    Cons

    a very negative boss, a management who doesn't have the spine to tell some of their employees of their negative ways

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    teach your management to respect the people under them. we are the frontliners to the clients. we bring in the cash. we deserve respect in the work place.
