Easy going production facility with high expectations
Raw Materials Planning Coordinator (Current Employee), Itasca, ILFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: wellness program, benefits package, laid back environment
Cons: below average compensation, no room for advancement without relocation
On a typical day I work with colleagues in nearly every department on site to understand our needs and any limitations (warehouse space, labor, etc.). I work with vendors worldwide and colleagues outside the facility to ensure materials arrive in a cost affective way just in time (JIT) for production.
I enjoy the fact that, although I run the same reports – more... on a daily basis, I never know what is going to happen or who I need to work with to reach my daily objectives. I like that Givaudan is a large international company and that I can work with people from all over the world on a daily basis. I also enjoy working with SAP, and appreciated the extensive training Givaudan provided. Givaudan is a very innovative company and they value the input of their employees regardless of their role. Givaudan also offers a great benefits package for its employees.
My on site managers are receptive to my communications with them and work to implement requests that my coworkers and I make. – less
