I worked at Firmenich full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Loved Flavor & Fragrance industry - combination of art & science, family owned company provides for longer term horizon and provides a sense of stability despite challenging times, international company with lots of career opportunities if you know what you want & make it happen, good pay & benefits, good people to work with

Cons

Outside of core metiers (flavorist, perfumer, etc.) career progression is very much up to you and strength of your network, greater performance & development orientation would be good

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Harness the positive power of the company's distinctive culture to bring about the needed change, make empowerment happen and stay close to your people
