Interesting company in Flavors and Fragrance Business

Finance (Former Employee)
Princeton, NJ

I worked at Firmenich full-time for more than 5 years

ProsInteresting company in the Flavors and Fragrance business that you have never heard of that may touch your life every day. Us is largest outfit outside Geneva.

ConsPrivately held company with HQ in Geneva. All decision top down with no inclusion Little career opportunities for growth and development for the future outside Geneva except for a chosen few.

In US once you reach 5 years and are vested in the pension they look to get rid of you and replace with the next fellow. The HR group is a little fiefdom started by the VP who also once he joined fired the former staff. the company was better when the department heads ran the business.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with employees about the company. The are interested and want to participate in the good fortunes of the company. Everyone counts not just the B building.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
