Sr. Production Assistant (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, TXMay 22, 2017
A typical day at work started at 8:00 am I would do a walk through of all the plants and confirm all production into SAP, and collect any campaigns that were complete. Once campaigns were complete I would verify all production and close the orders. Inventory investigation, inventory corrections, planning, consumed most of my day.
Pros
gym
Cons
appreciation was limited

This place is horrible!
Grinder Operator (Current Employee) –  Reading, PAApril 27, 2017
Managed by morons who wouldn't know their ear from their elbow. Third shift supervisor is an inbred redneck that enjoys small woodland creatures in his spare time.
Pros

All management.

Conservative culture that values employees
Master Black Belt (Current Employee) –  USAApril 24, 2017
Conservative European company which is making an effort to modernize internal processes in order to be competitive with peers.

Akzo values work life balance and has reasonable expectations about workload. However, cost cutting and internal reorganizations put pressure on employees and expectations are changing.

Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 3, 2017
Use to care about employees not anymore. Changes in upper management led to employees not feeling valued. Pay raises very small if any, depending on who you knew or worked for.

Constant state of change
Manager (Current Employee) –  Strongsville, OHMarch 28, 2017
Management can't seem to get on track. They are constantly in a state of change. Outsourcing everything employee they can to the point that you have to open tickets for HR issues then wait weeks or months in some cases to get a response. Most training is composed of PPT slide packs and then very little follow up.

Part time work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Reading, PAMarch 23, 2017
Good place to gain experience and move on. Management feeds you false hope. And the supervisor micromanages you from across the room after they asked you to take care of it. Learned a great deal about moving freight as in scheduling delivers to customers as well as scheduling inbound supplies from other plants.

Easy to work for in terms of tasks completion but terrible management problems
Quality Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 22, 2017
The hardest part of the job is having to deal with bad turnaround times with management. Once in a while you will have a supervisor that knows what they are doing. Other times you have to deal with their incompetence. There is also little place for growth. Though if you are content with the job you applied for without room for growth, this is the place for you.
