Stagnant atmosphere discourages ambition and individuality

Lab Technician (Former Employee)
Lakeland, FL

I worked at Givaudan full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood benefits, nice facilities, all levels of employees are treated as part of the company (and encouraged to conform), fair pay

ConsEmployees are passive aggressive, because dissidence is highly undesirable. This leaves opportunities wide open for predisposed bullying personalities to dominate entire isolated departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet an actual HR department that honestly addresses employee concerns. Encourage employee input and allow for some disagreement. That is normal and healthy! Otherwise, Givaudan is a sound business, but that is a huge flaw.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
