Skilled Tradesman (Current Employee) – Frankfort, IN – March 5, 2018
It is simple: do not work there. The maintenance manager is a joke, and the people there are a bunch of backstabbing losers. The work was easy, and fun at times, but I was set up to fail from day one. My direct manager might have spoke to me six times during the whole term of my employment, and I ended up getting set up by him. Needless to say, I wouldn't waste my time urinating on him if he was on fire. The saddest part of it all was the place was such an awesome facility to work and grow as a professional if it were not for the inadequate people.

Process Technician (Former Employee) – Belvidere, NJ – December 14, 2017
I was only three 4 years but I learned many things and had an eye opening experience on products, procedures, and implementation of their raw materials. I find it amazing with what we can do now days with technology and engineering. I made many friends and had a great time while employed there. I got involved with he ERT and safety department. I went to fire school and got involved with the volunteer fire department. This was a fun place to work. Good compensation and benefits.

Manager (Current Employee) – Parsippany, NJ – October 14, 2017
The company is small enough for employees to have impact and reach into multiple job functions. Large enough for customers and suppliers to recognize DSM as a market leader. The company has a well respected and clear vision and mission, but struggles to develop a culture to support it. There is a serious lack of training and knowledge management which has caused internal confusion and less than desired business development over the past few years. This is compounded by less and less HR staff as an employee resource. Therefore many new employees to the company feel lost and confused and lacking career direction. There are a lot of good people here, but many are under valued and under utilized as the company looks elsewhere to import a culture they have tried to develop over the past 5 years. The hardest part of the job is a lack of career advancement and visibility to what could be next if you want career growth. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you work with domestically & globally and the safe, pleasant work environment at most locations.
Safe working conditions, global network, market respect
Career development, base pay tends to be lower due to good benefits
Nice place to work. Good people, nice conditions, good pay. More training would be nice. Lots going on all the time, always something to do. Got to meet some of the smartest I've ever had the pleasure to work with.
Processing Purchase Orders Processing changes to Purchase orders based on supplier confirmations. Working with customer and supplier to have new suppliers setup in the database. Handling urgent requests
Workplace culture: Very team originated. Helping each other, working together as one team.
Hardest part of the job is to ensure every customer is happy.
Enjoyable part of the job is working with a great group of people who can laugh and work well together.
Healthcare, environment, opportunities, company gatherings
I learned a lot here and really enjoyed working with the people here. They are willing to teach you everything even if it is not in your job description. The more you know and are able to do the more valuable you are to the company and the smarter you get. You become more qualified than when you got there.
Laboratory (Current Employee) – California – April 10, 2017
The people at DSM/Ontario, are all very friendly and generally happy. The biggest sticking-point for me is the unfriendly, out-of-date software used and the network too. The network (PC) has it's home in New York, which makes things really slow in California. Also, the LIMS system used in the lab is severely antiquated. It was designed for Win95. It is terribly slow, and it is not user-friendly. One would think a large multi-national corporation wouldn't be using primitive software... so easy to make mistakes due to it's poor interface:-(
Pilot Plant Operator (Former Employee) – Winchester, KY – March 20, 2017
Easily the best job I've ever had in all respects. Pay and benefits were great, ample paid time off, generous medical leave policy with short and long term disability provided. I'd still work there if it weren't for a medical issue keeping me out for over six months.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Ontario, CA – March 15, 2017
the people there good for the most part management need a lot of work their is some good this like company party's. but there is no job security if i can give -stars i will, management talks down to employees and only promont people who kiss up to them. as we became more part of dsm management has no idea how to handle things, and if you want to talk to a hr person you have to call a 1800 number but the 1800 number only handles payroll the 1800 number gives you a email adders to contact.they was always on you to produce even if there was little to no jobs to do.
