    Pros

    The people, the industry itself. It is a company where everyone is willing to teach you what they do if you work hard and are accountable. I would go back anytime, had to leave due to geographical reasons.

    Cons

    The first year you don't have vacations, but its worth it as over the years you have a lot of days off.

    I worked at Givaudan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A great place to learn about the industry and decent pay. You get to work with some amazing people but beware of the ones who are not so genuine.

    Cons

    Favoritism was very obvious. Management picks and chooses who they want to invest in while leaving others on the back burner and completely taking advantage of their hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Give fair and equal opportunities to your employees that work hard and are dedicated. Stop playing favoritism and also, for upper management, change with the upcoming generation that will eventually take over. Too many old school mentalities.

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

    Pros

    This company has great systems ans structure

    Cons

    Worst company culture, they don’t have a clear and transparent career ladder. Everything seems to be favoritism and what school you went to. They don’t support or growth the next generation of professionals, they focused on the old school hierarchy. There is no entrepeneur spirit and they are not open to changes or suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    They should really look into their management team and change their old ways, they keep losing great talent because of few people that has been with the company for many years and make this company look really bad.

    I worked at Givaudan (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have great systems and advanced structure within their industry.

    Cons

    They have a bad company culture. They dont have a transparent and clear career ladder, it is more like favoritism and what school you went to. It seems like everyone has different steps to get to the next level so is very confusing and very frustrating. The Management creates a toxic and very competitive environment that is unnecesary and they dont invest in young professionals instead they continue focusing on their senior management that dont have the skills or training to manage the up and coming generation. The continue losing great talent because of this issue and even clients are aware of this.

    Advice to Management

    I think they need to stop and see what is happening. It has the potential to be a great company but just if they change the old ways of the current management and they listen to people. I believe that they are aware of the changes that they need to make.
