I worked at DSM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good management, strong strategic focus, good education and development opportunities, diverse portfolio of markets and businesses, room for development via project related work or business competitions is very rewarding.

Cons

Can sometimes suffer from Corporate Inertia, but not more than a lot of other big companies...
HR system can be very rigid, with promotions and rewards very much process- and rule based with limited room for deviation if necessary.

Advice to Management

Become a bit more agile both with high performers as well as performance laggards!

    Pros

    Great Place to work, work-life balance and compensation are all very attractive. Carrer advancement and mentoring is taken seriously and there is ample opportunity to get the training that you desire.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy associated with a large organization is a major hurdle in getting things done in a smooth fashion. Job titles may not be par with what you see in other companies.

    Pros

    Leaving, but don't get me wrong.... many years ago PTG was a great place to work... great management, and great owners. Thanks Bob, Bob and Kathy!

    Cons

    Poor HR, Poor Management, they manage by putting fear into employees.. one employee was so stressed that I believe it contributed to her death (Yes, HR went to her house to find her dead - maybe they should have been a bit more understanding of her complaints about the stress they were causing her.

    Advice to Management

    They need to terminate Executive Management and replace them with non-DSM employees.
