    Pros

    It's a great multinational company to work in, lots of challenges, which comes with lots of opportunities. Provides training, invests in people, and constantly improving processes to keep up with market needs.

    Cons

    Many projects get started, but enthusiasm fades out quickly. Room for improving allocation of internal resources for higher effectiveness.

    I worked at Henkel

    Pros

    Good health insurance, ok salaries. Some really great people work here.

    Cons

    No training opportunities, no management feedback, bickering between departments, megalomanic managers. Not a fun place to work. Hourly people sometimes asked to work without pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should pay more attention to people they are managing, less about the bottom line. People are unhappy, and will unionize if things don't improve.

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

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. The people are solid. Good brands. Been with the company over 10 years and the company is always downsizing to make the number

    Cons

    Too many personnel cuts to the sales force has eroded our abilities. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Moral is very low with intense pressure to make a number every month. No long term strategies.
