I worked at International Flavors & Fragrances as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

- Got to work with numbers on a large, corporate scale
- Manager was very nice
- Pay was decent
- Worked when it was convenient for me
- Always smelled great

Cons

- Easy to get lost (because there are so many people and because the building is quite confusing)
- Instructions can be unclear
- Didn't like the atmosphere (lots of swearing in the office)

Advice to Management

Make sure managers are more than just nice.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Interesting industry
    Good 401K match
    Global, many interesting people to interface with.
    Where else can a chemist have a product on the market in 3 yrs?

    Cons

    No formal career path
    inconsistent salaries
    Senior managment loves ROI and misses the point of innovation.
    Little support for implementation of novel chemical technologies: still replying on 1950's chemistry.

    Advice to Management

    Be a chemical company that makes fragrances, not a fragrance house that makes chemicals. Take the time to listen to your in house experts instead of consultants.
