12 hour swing shifts, good pay
Rare Sugar Lab Tech (Former Employee) –  Thomson, ILDecember 29, 2016
12 hour swing shifts multiple times over two weeks. Horrible if you have young children, but okay for a single guy or adult children. Great pay, great job perks, but not so great if you prefer a regular sleep schedule.

Overall a pleasant place to work
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Terre Haute, INJuly 13, 2013
This company purchased the Food Science Division from Pfizer and all of us employed in that division became employees of Danisco. Not much changed from the Pfizer job. Compensation, benefits and responsibilities remained the same but then much of the quality work was outsourced to other companies and many employees lost their jobs, me included.
Pros
Good complensation
Cons
Outsourced too much work.

Compliant workers need only apply (helps if you are Danish)
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYJune 19, 2012
Granted this was a firm that took over the firm I loved working for so I'm bound to be a bit negative about it. Most of the good stuff happened in Denmark or US headquarters. You were supposed to just do things without questioning. The prior firm was one of those innovative places that valued doing things the best way possible so also valued creative suggestions and feedback. This place didn't.
Pros
copenhagen is a nice place to visit, people generally nice
Cons
imagination and creativity not highly valued

Safety Manager (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAMay 10, 2012
As a Safety Manager, my observance of safe work habits and safe environment was the key of keeping up with safety. Typical day would include a safety meeting and new hire orientation. When you build, the landscape changes drastically from day to day...so safety means everything to keep hazards down to a minimal.
Pros
good environment
Cons
none noted
