Pros

You get to work on iconic brands and with some very intelligent people. With a big global company, you have the opportunity to work abroad.

Cons

Unfortunately, much of the strategy is centrally-derived from Dusseldorf. Even if you're working on a U.S. brand like Dial, you still have most of the decisions coming from overseas. Career advancement is based more on timing than on skilled work.

    I have been working at Henkel full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good benefits and a solid reputation. They offer 401K matching, tuition reimbursement, flexible schedules and dependent care account matching.

    Cons

    Corporate culture has declined in the last two years, leaving organization fragmented and very siloed. Workload has also increased as jobs have been eliminated, forcing employees to do more at a lesser quality than before. Morale is extremely low for those that have been there long enough to witness the change in culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider whether Vision and Values really match reality. Performance results are not only as a result of market conditions, but of employee's morale.

    Age and gender discrimination, poor moral in the company, not an employer of choice , feeling you have a long term career is only for the few chosen
