Good pay and benefits. Everything is approved by Germany.
Packaging Fellow (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZSeptember 28, 2018
They do take care of their employees, but speed to market is hampered by upper management in Germany that think they know the North American market better than the North Americans. You are either willing to relocate/move (mobility) or your raises/promotions will be limited.
Pros
Pay, Benefits
Cons
Red Tape

looks good from a distance
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Culver City, CASeptember 23, 2018
Huge disconnect with leadership, who seems to be a bit hands off with the exception of certain brands. A lot of the leadership team for the brands live remote. Culture doesn't really exist

Lot of hours
Operator (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYSeptember 23, 2018
Was told when i started they were only working overtime the last three months. After starting, employees said it had been this way for years.

10s 5 days a week plus saturday 4 to 8 hours. Inventory is a complete mess and the new computer system goes down at least once a week.

Management doesn't know what is going on on the floor. If they see you asking someone a question, they will assume you spend your whole day talking.

Very dirty
Pros
Benefits day one
Cons
10 min break, no local hr, hours, inventory

typical day
Line Operator/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYAugust 30, 2018
a typical day is standing on your feet for 11 out of 12 hours and making quality checks (checking the weight of the bottle and tightness of the cap, making sure the labels are on correctly with no blemishes in them) its not a hard job to do but does require you to lift quite a bit and be able to fix small mechanical issues.

Fun place to work
Packager (Former Employee) –  Seabrook, NH 03874August 24, 2018
If youve got good work ethic and are able to focus and do well at your job this is the perfect place. I loved working here despite some things that did not go so well. The people really make the place more freindly and make you feel welcome and want to work there. As long as you balance work community with good work its a perfect place to be.

Favoritism
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Salisbury NCAugust 19, 2018
Management has their favorites and if you don't fall in that group you're an outcast. If you're not a "yes man" and think for yourself or question things, you're also an outcast. That site is run by a select few people and everyone else are puppets. Upper management has married couples that overlap departments which is a big conflict of interest but the site manager continues to allow it. With a management change this site would be great to work at. Most management has no idea how good of a staff they have and EVERYONE is a number.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons

Average
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYAugust 16, 2018
Lack of advancement opportunities unless you are willing to work nights for a year minimum typically. Also seems nepotistic in that you need to be in with the right people and get very buddy buddy. Your work ethic or skill set will have little to do with advancement. Raises depend on who your boss is and again not at all work ethic or skill set. Don't even bother trying to learn new things for the sole purpose of pay advancement because you won't get it. You will just increase your work load. True skill or career advancement such as apprenticeships or education is either nonexistent or tremendously hard to acquire and complete. Pay is consistent and for most departments they rarely cut hours. Overtime is available only sometimes. PTO is done in a sketchy way as they primarily base it around an 8 hour work day, but all shifts are 12 hours. Most of the time production consists of just getting product out of the door instead of trying to run most efficiently or correctly and safely. They run things until they literally fall apart and can't be held together by duct tape or zip ties anymore. Can make certain lines a nightmare to run. This review is based off of years of experience at the plant in Bowling Green, KY.

Excelentes aprendizajes
Promotor (Former Employee) –  San Luis, COAugust 16, 2018
Se aprende demasiado, es un reto sacar adelante y mantener a la empresa en su estatus de venta.

Adquieres conocimiento en como tratar al personal a tu cargo, tanto como a los clientes para los cuales nos desempeñamos.

El ámbito laboral siempre debe estar bien establecido y con una grata calidad humana.

Siempre existen reglas las cuales debemos seguir, todas las empresas tienen sus lineamientos los cuales tienen un porqué.

En ocasiones de baja venta, solo hay que impulsar y desarrollar planes para atraer mayores ganancias.

Admirables los puestos Gerenciales.

Can't say anything good.
Packaging Operator (Former Employee) –  Seabrook, NHAugust 6, 2018
Was the worst place I've ever worked! It's very hot and we were not allowed to have bottled water or anything like that. All we had was house fans to keep us cool.The training was not good.

Pretty good place to work
FSS Operator (Former Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYAugust 2, 2018
I had heard that managers from other departments were a bit questionable but mine was great and I advanced in the company within my first year. I was treated very well and enjoyed working 12 hour shifts as it gives you more days off.
Pros

Cons
Mandatory overtime all the time

Excellent Work Environment, Technical Customer Service
Regional Application Engineer (Former Employee) –  Rocky Hill, CTJuly 26, 2018
Henkel has a corporate culture that is encourages a satisfied employee. It actively creates opportunity for career growth and is clear on its expectations are for day to day work and overall performance. It is a unique workplace that genuinely prioritizes customer satisfaction over immediate profit to cultivate long term relations. They are the ideal work smarter, not harder.
The culture is very not at all toxic, and hires are equally judged on how they'd fit in just as much as their performance.
However, from an engineering perspective, the work is not difficult. Most work done is record keeping and logging sales accounts across multiple platforms that are not in sync. Despite requiring ABET college graduates, most work can be achieved by a technically savy business major or someone with an STEM associates degree.
The higher ups have lost vision on trying to keep up with corporate trends instead of streamlining processes. Flashy Ipads are great but aren't very useful on a microsoft and SAP platform that don't bridge easily.
Sales force takes the weight of the company but doesn't get enough say in the direction.
Strong communication is demanded for this job as it is primarily managing accounts and relations by delivering expectations while balancing the supported sales representatives demands.
No one lasts longer than 3 years before transferring horizontally, promotion, or leaving limiting the tribal knowledge.
Pros
Benefits, Competitive Pay, Clear Expectations
Cons
Limited Advancement in Technical Path

KPI' is all site management cares about
Manager (Current Employee) –  Salisbury, NCJuly 16, 2018
Extremely high turnover. HR has their head in the sand and does nothing for the employees except to give them number to call if they need something. Site Manager does not care about anything but his own promotion.
Pros
always growing
Cons
only cares about its shareholders not the employees

No career advancement
Global Production Manager & Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 10, 2018
The company really doesn't offer advancement or a career path. Also, this particular brand mainly hires women in leadership roles, so as a long term male employee my career was stunted.
