Company Culture

Highly competitive, heavy workload, low compensation, meager employee appreciation, high employee turn over.

Support from management

Management shows good support on projects as long as the customer is being served. Employee support for growth, merit increase and career advancement is not good.

Freedom to work independently

This is something that the company is very good at. They generally allowed engineers and techs to run their tasks and manage their time.

Internal Communication

Silo information, felt I was working on my own, poor feedback on performance. Newly hired managers have little understanding on research processes and only push for completion to meet customer expectation. Most managers are not hands on laboratory people.

Gender Equality

Trying to hire more women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I have seen older co-workers let go for "performance" related issues and it always happens when they are under newly hired managers.

Career Development

Very slow career growth. The only way to get a good pay increase is to move to another department or to another company altogether.

Overall compensation for your work

Very poor merit increase. Pay rate is a confidential issue and is not publicly discussed.

Office / Work Environment

Open office work was intended to increase corroboration, but it also increases distractions as some people are just louder.

Environmental Friendliness

the company prides itself as being environmentally friendly

Work-Life Balance

Heavy workload forces long work hours averaging more than 60 hours a week and sometimes coming on the weekends to complete a project.

Company Image

since company customers are well known there is some pride attached having worked for Henkel

Job Security

No job security. Felt threatened for being fired or laid off most of the time.

Handicapped Accessibility

Absolutely

Workplace Safety

Very serious on 5S and job safety analysis to reduce accidents

Challenging Work

Work definitely allows for some degree of creativity as you can plan your own T&E. The problem usually is the tight deadlines.

Inclusive / Diverse

Work force is very diverse

Suggestions for improvement

  • Performance review process is very problematic as it pits people against each other. Those that find themselves at the edges of the bell curve are generally in trouble of being removed. This is not conducive to a team atmosphere.

What I like about the company

They do provide good benefits and have some work scheduling flexibility.

What I dislike about the company

Management do not look out for their employees. They are very cold and detached.
