Indian Management spoiling the company
New management from outside the industry who does not know how to run a F&F business. IFF India living on past laurels.Does not retain talent and is not a people company and is evident by ex employees whom are now leaders with IFF's competition and IFF had to bring in an outsider.

Has a reputation of having the worst HR in the industry as no one from competition will ever join IFF. HR is weak as there is no leader and the HR head is inexperienced in dealing with people.


IFF has lost significant share over the last 5 years and has grown below the industry. The only way they grow the business is by price hikes in the distribution business and having legacy business in categories and key customers.


Global Customers have begun asking competition to match all of IFF legacy flavours as IFF has lost its competitive edge.
Cons
Under staffed, One employee is asked to do two people's job, evident form the down sizing of employees over the years.
