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

    Pros

    Fringe benefits:
    Travel expense policy is lax (alcohol is OK)
    Lots of office parties & free food
    10% bonus potential for managers
    V.P.'s get ~$650/mo car lease

    Cons

    All my comments are regarding the USA division, other countries seem to be much better.

    Sales is king, if you make sales you are treated well, R&D is effectively part of sales so expect to be selling what you develop, but long term success will reward you.

    As a company based in Belgium Americans are treated as disposable until you prove useful for sales. The president, all the V.P.'s and many others are expats from Belgium who get free cars, fuel, insurances, rent and higher pay. As an american you will NEVER pierce the Belgium ceiling, maybe you get promoted to middle management, once I say an American VP, but watch you back there is someone in Belgium looking to take your spot. They dont think twice about letting people go, usually for no reason.

    Operations is treated horribly, Plant Managers and supervisors are a revolving door. Every year sales was asked to increase 10%+, spend budgets for everyone increased 3% EXCEPT production/engineering/operations which was expected to decrease total expenses 3% with that 10% volume increase, NOTE not an indexed 3% decrease, an overall 3% decrease.

    Advice to Management

    Get some American leadership, stop trying to build a little Belgium in America, all the Americans hate you due to the way they are treated

    Pros

    Collaborative environment, challenging and meaningful work, opportunities to lead and develop. These are all reasons I love working for this global, family owned food manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment, not for the meek or faint of heart. Definitely not the place to work if you need daily guidance and direction.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the Puratos Magic - it's what makes Puratos so unique and special

    Pros

    I really enjoy working at Puratos because of the people who are like an extended family. The company has brought me lots of different career opportunities across different countries, markets and roles. We all work hard, towards common goals and all live what we call the Puratos Magic daily!

    Cons

    In any job we are faced with daily challenges, but how we tackle those together are what makes working at Puratos so enjoyable. Puratos is an entrepreneurial company encouraging its employees to take the initiative and overcome hurdles rather than sit back and complain!
