fermentation opperator (Current Employee) – Germantown, WI – March 27, 2014
DSM bought this plant in Germantown and didn't even have a plant manager for the first 8 months or so. They just let the management that Cargill left behind run the show. When they finally did get a plant mgr. he just supported and protected the regime already in place.
The culture on the floor has really gone downhill. It's really a shame. They have some great workers and really treat them terrible.
Pay is good with a great 401k match. About the only good thing there besides for co-workers.
The actual work is rather enjoyable. Not too hard, just a pain putting up with all the extra sideshow they put on you .
Under Cargill you felt like a part of the team under DSM you feel like they are trying to find a reason to fire you.
Many of their good workers have already left or got fired. Management just has an "I don't care" attitude towards all this.
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.
