    Pros

    Global company that seeks to be the leader in the Flavor and Fragrance Industry. Pushes for innovation and "Best in Class" services for both Consumers and Customers.

    Sometimes it seems the needs for shareholder profits take away from allowing departments to grow and develop as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building on your greatest assets - the employees.

    I worked at Givaudan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Lots of time off, which you will need because you work a lot of overtime.

    Cons

    Very negative work environment and poor management. Too many rules to follow and keep up with and not consistent for all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make less rules and make consistent for all employees.

    I worked at Givaudan as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Great hands on project work, co-ops play a big role
    -Ability to work closely with production, working on the floor with operators, maintenance, other engineers, and management regularly
    -Excellent mentor-ship from senior engineers and project manager to guide interns in the right direction

    Cons

    -The overall culture at the site was not the best, but was improving as time went on

    Advice to Management

    -It felt like their was a certain disconnection from North American Regional Management and the production sites. More engagement from regional managers with the sites would be a plus in my opinion.
