Happy and great learning facility
Laboratory Technician (Temp) (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NYAugust 10, 2017
Firmenich was warm and very welcoming. Everyone worked together to complete a project to keep the job afloat. I learned working there,it is never a wrong answer by asking a question, a wrong answer is not asking at all. management are understanding willing to work with you schedules, and very considerate. The part of the day was trying to meet a deadline but running out of material to complete your task. The enjoyable part of the day is when the perfumer is satisfied.
Pros
Learning different areas of compounding
Cons
You can make mistakes unknowingly

Flexarome Operations
Flexarome Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJ 08536January 15, 2017
I day consist of several different challenges ranging any where from trying to get a good quality and consistent product to run to running the entire run which consist of preparing batches for mixing, building the line up for startup, packing, then once run ended. Breakdown the line for CIP, and also in between run time. Trying to fit in time to order material for the next day. There was only one shift of run, so everything had to done within 8 hours. Safety was always on mind and Quality too. It was a three man job ran by only two of us. There was days to recover. But we got job done, with no issues from clients. I've become quiet proficient at multitasking, not to mention working along side engineers, electricians, and project managers I've picked up some problem solving skills. Its sort of second nature now. Would I recommend to another person, yes but with warning. If there not ready to work hard, fast and tirelessly. Its not for everyone

Toxic Culture
Scientist (Current Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJJuly 27, 2016
Toxic culture that breeds insecurity and fear. Management is there to protect themselves and not the company. I would think twice before working there.
