Management not interested in other views

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Job was mundane and management was not interested in different view points. They also didn't appreciate going above or beyond or working extra hours.

only ok

No raises since before covid, gender pay gap is real, no advancements and all departments needs more women in management positions. management plays favorites for raises and PTO days.

Great Experience

I remember with great fondness my days with Firmenich, from the exciting fast-paced environment in NYC to the warm welcome in Florida at the Citrus Center. I was fortunate enough to have great mentors who encouraged me and valued my efforts and ideas.

Horrible work environment

They lie to get you in the door and just tell you what you want to hear. Once in everything changes. Management is horrible. Especially in the maintenance department. They don't allow you to take your breaks half the time. Would not recommend. Avoid this company.

Pros

None

Cons

They make you feel like a slave more then an employee.

PSRA Specialist

For a Corporation that has over 7,000, it's amazing how they keep it to a Family atmosphere.I was only there for a 6 month contract as part of a merger, but was made to feel totally included as one of the Family. Unfortunately there were no open positions at the end of my contract.Supervisors were always encouraging and there for support.

Bad Just Bad

Management is a joke. They don't care for their employees. There really is no upside to working at Firmenich. They don't want you to have a life other than Firmenich. They don't tell you have to work weekends but if you don't there is a clear target painted on your back. Also they ask for their employees to be open with concerns but once you do you don't get raises or access to moving up and in no time you are out the door.

Don't work here

This place only cares about getting its product out nothing else. They don't care about you at all. Worst job I've ever had and will never go back to that place

Chemical Operator and or blender

I feel that the actual job was fine but the culture was not. And of course there was the pandemic needless to say,, This is all I have to say, today

Different than what I was expecting

I did a lot with physically building laboratory equipment and programming which wasn't really what I was expecting from a chemical engineering internship.

Great Place to work

Would highly recommend Firmenich as a place to work. This is a company with a purpose for good and responsible business practices. Family business that prioritizes all stakeholders

they expect 80 hours of work in a 40 hour week, and do not support you

It was like working with high school cliques, if you weren't in with the cool kids, it was impossible to feel safe and work well. Even if you did your job properly, you did not get help or support from anyone, even management. HR is useless. Hardest part of the job is supervisors and bosses being CONSISTENTLY inconsistent, and the best part of the day was leaving. For well over a YEAR, they enacted a MANDATORY 6 day work week, and demanded at least 8-12 hours of overtime a WEEK, otherwise write-ups were handed out.

Ok

Management in Saint Louis for this company is horrible. Truly a jacked up place to work. Run the other way if you see a job opportunity from this company listed in Saint Louis. Lots of gun fire also on a regular basis is the norm and should be expected as the Saint Louis location is in one of the worst areas of north Saint Louis. This company is garbage.

Not good

This place is run by a bunch of Amateurs. The eduction for exceeds the common sense. There's no planning in anything that happens at firmenich. Not a good environment at all. Management make the simplest task very stressful. The work is great! It's the management that is the down side . Don't say I didn't warn you!

Pros

Pay and benefits are ok.

Cons

Management

work environment sucks and plant manager don’t care about nobody but herself...

Managers don’t recognize good employees and leads sit on computer on YouTube or internet or just sit on cellnphones texting or Facebook, Work morale is at a low and a lot of employees are leaving due to this and pay sucks low raises and no advancement plant manager has taken all company perks away from employees...

Pros

Workers are cool to work with

Cons

Low to no raises and managers

Bad place to work

This was a great place to work but with recent management changes its horrible. It went from being a great group to work with to everyman for himself. The manager plays favorites and has teacher's pets mainly those who kiss her you know what. They do not trust anyone and there is no room for advancement unless you want to become an account manager and sell. Don't expect good raises 2-4% and that's if you're lucky because they will always find something.

Pros

subsidized lunch

Cons

everything else, horrible management

Bad place to work

Terrible terrible place to work. Dont expect to have a personal life while working there. FIRMENICH dont care if your mother passed away, they want you there at work. This company also tried NOT to give employees sick leave which is the law in New Jersey now. Used to be a good place to work but new management is running that place into the ground.

Pros

PTO days

Cons

Everything else os bad bad bad

Don’t work here

You are a number. A statistic. Worst job I have ever encountered. If your into doing more work and getting paid less, if your into no communication and low morale then maybe it’s for you. They treat you bad, they don’t pay good, they play many favorites over you no matter how good you work. No advancement just lies. Bait and switch effect. They ask you how they can improve and then they don’t do it. They set rules and regulations and management breaks them themselves over and over.

Pros

It’s a job

Cons

Everything. People quit all the time.
