    Pros

    Decent place to work . Work and life balance . Options to work from home some days which is a really good thing for someone with a family Excellent management culture

    I can't really tell about any cons currently but I guess every department has its own challenges however the work/management culture makes it bearable

    Advice to Management

    Bad budgeting and Henkel needs to focus on employees more than future goals.

    Pros

    Terrific benefits! The benefits are outstanding both for medical and for additional perks. Large company with a huge international presence, diverse portfolio and lots of growth potential. The company has been around for 100+ years and seems to have a strong leadership team.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be difficult to figure out how/where to get answers to questions because the company is so large.
