Former Employee - Business Controller, Vice President Finance in New York, NY
Former Employee - Business Controller, Vice President Finance in New York, NY

I worked at DSM full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good management, strong strategic focus, good education and development opportunities, diverse portfolio of markets and businesses, room for development via project related work or business competitions is very rewarding.

Cons

Can sometimes suffer from Corporate Inertia, but not more than a lot of other big companies...
HR system can be very rigid, with promotions and rewards very much process- and rule based with limited room for deviation if necessary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become a bit more agile both with high performers as well as performance laggards!

    Pros

    OK compensation and benefits. With good career oppotunities. Good work/ life balance. Providing reimbursement for tuition. Yes, would recommend to friends.

    Cons

    compensation and benefits could be a little bit better. A lot of Europeans in senior management level, which might be a cultural difference.

    Pros

    Leaving, but don't get me wrong.... many years ago PTG was a great place to work... great management, and great owners. Thanks Bob, Bob and Kathy!

    Cons

    Poor HR, Poor Management, they manage by putting fear into employees.. one employee was so stressed that I believe it contributed to her death (Yes, HR went to her house to find her dead - maybe they should have been a bit more understanding of her complaints about the stress they were causing her.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to terminate Executive Management and replace them with non-DSM employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
