A company that needs fresh managrment
QSC Quick service clerk (Former Employee), Carrollton, TXJuly 5, 2015
Pros: It did nothing
Cons: management that only looked out for their own intres
No cooperation from management when it comes to new ideas, I learn that no matter how hard you work, no one will appreciated, you do the work by the honor that bounds you to do what's right, trying for better job environment with out management support, my co works made a great team, we got impossible tusk completed no matter how hard it was to achieve.

Its a place where you are able to share your point of view and be a part of something bigger. You will be given tasks that are difficult but then the company puts you in a position to learn quickly.

Communications Specialist (Current Employee), Norcross, GAJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: great culture - fun place to work
Cons: too much change
I have enjoyed working at AkzoNobel more than any other job I've ever had. I always feel like my skills and talents are valuable and useful, and that I'm making a meaningful difference. The down side is that the company has undergone radical structural changes, laid off a lot of people (including me in just a few days), and made some serious missteps along the way (moved a guy from Brazil to Holland and then eliminated his position the day his furniture was being delivered). All of this has had an impact on morale and no one is confident that they will have a job in 6 months.

Executive Assistant for Functional Chemicals (Current Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 24, 2014
Working at AkzoNobel has been a wonderful experience. I have the opportunity to work independently but also have great colleagues to rely on when necessary.

Management promotes the company values while allowing employees to work with little to no micro-management.

The team I work with is very interactive and we have a great focus on team building so we have come to know each other very well.

Very unstable work environment
Admin (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAMarch 25, 2014
Constant reorganization and restructuring, employees always feel their jobs are under threat. Consequently there is a lot of back-stabbing and lack of trust. Management is weak, indecisive and out of touch with employees. Most work processes are disorganized and IT support is literally a bad joke.
