Ok people no accountability
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHMay 16, 2018
Management is spineless. The most senior workers there think they are above everyone else. No training or matrix in place to show workers what is needed to progress. The benefits are good and so is the pay. Overall not a bad place to work but the lack of real management could prove detrimental.

Sales Assistant / Administrator (Former Employee) –  City Deep, GautengFebruary 16, 2018
The sales department personnel needs you to put in extra hours due to the work load.

Training is provided at the HQ in Duebendorf / Switzerland. I was trained to be a systems Key User and it proved to be very beneficial for me and my colleagues.

Due to the work pressure the workplace culture is ...work and no play!

Givaudan Summary
Quality Control Technician (Former Employee) –  Carol Stream, ILOctober 5, 2017
I believe I just was with the company at the wrong time due to our business being acquired by Givaudan. SAP transition led to a very poor work environment.
