It just gets worse and worse

Formulation Chemist (Current Employee)
Plymouth, MI

I have been working at Freudenberg-NOK full-time for more than a year

ProsGood equipment and location (Beck @ I 96).

ConsRemarkably inept and unprofessional management throughout - amateurs at best. Pay is just OK but benefits are the most pathetic I've ever seen. Advice to jobseekers -the place is easy to get into because they want to use and then dispose of you, so go ahead and start there and collect everything you can for your CV before 18 months (which is when they will replace you with another set of hands).

Advice to Senior ManagementNo point in adivising management, they wouldn't know what to do with it anyway.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
