    Pros

    Great company. Work life balance is great. Off holidays. You are able to buy an extra week vacation on top of the two you start out with. Great benefits and 401K. I love the managers and supervisors but things could go more smoothly.

    Cons

    Managers/Supervisors do not always handle issues in a timely manner or if at all. Turnover is horrible because the employees go unheard. Or you are told to resolve issues yourself between you and other coworkers which only creates a hostile environment not a productive one. Because you can work like the energizer bunny they expect it all of the time... it can be very exhausting and stressful...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and make sound judgements based on facts.

    Industry leading resources with great benefits and competitive wages based on a legacy of culture from Tastemaker , Fries & Fries, Givaudan-Roure with continued ambition to outgrow the market.

    Large enough that focus can be on the process over people . Largess contributes to a lack of training adequately.

    Advice to Management

    Offer of greater incentive to teams which collaborate and by weighting across industry categories by ease of growth , size of respective markets , and present share.

    Pros

    Benefits package, 401k match is excellent. Ability to purchase a weeks vacation.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen. You can complain on the same issue for weeks or months before anything gets done about it.
    Forget about moving up unless you are one of the chosen ones. Jobs are posted even though they already know who they are giving it to, it doesn't matter if your qualifications are the same or better. They take care of their buddies.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house at Devon
