    I have been working at Sensient Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Quick rewards for results, both financially and professionally.
    Great products.
    Action oriented, driven by high level of individual ownership and initiative.
    A persons results are more important then typical office politics.
    Truly global business, where pretty much everyone outside of production employees get to interact with multiple cultures.
    Well defined strategy.

    Cons

    It’s fast paced, not a place to ‘retire on the job’ but if you want to perform at your best and be recognized for your results there really aren’t any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on results and promoting from within.
