Good workers, poor management
Worker (Current Employee) –  Hazleton, PANovember 20, 2018
Good: Lots of vacation, good 401k, stock purchase.

Bad: The company is burning furniture to meet profit goals.

Ugly: Plant management is poor. No leadership, and plant is getting worse each month.

Ambiente lavorativo stimolante, tuttavia non sempre flessibile, fortemente gerarchico
Manager (Former Employee) –  EMEA, America del Nord, AsiaNovember 16, 2018
Buone possibilita' di carriera e di apprendimento per juniors presso la casa madre e negli ufficio regionali. Non sempre per gli seniors e in generale non negli uffici locali.
Azienda fortemente gerarchica, standardizzata, non sempre flessibile, con processi strutturati, e purtroppo pertanto lenti. Poco spazio per la cultura dell'imprenditorialità' e iniziativa. Tuttavia, l' azienda ha fatto dell' innovazione e cambiamento una priorità'.
Equilibrio vita privata/lavorativa varia a seconda del dipartimento e località'. Molte ore in più' di lavoro dovute a processi non sempre efficienti e politiche aziendali. Vita lavorativa abbastanza flessibile presso la casa madre con iniziative di remote working, tuttavia per lo più e' lasciato alla discrezione del responsabile diretto.
Pros
Job rotations ogni 2/3 anni se aperti al trasferimento, ambiente internazionale, multiculturale, dinamico
Cons
Politiche aziendali, orari di lavoro, fortemente gerarchico

Henkel Trainee (Current Employee) –  MexicoNovember 8, 2018
It's a good place to develop and improve your skills, also it helps you to be proactive and work with different areas which gives you a bigger idea of the company and the business.

I believe it would be better if the management were open mind.

Great place to work, Great people
Production Team Manager (Former Employee) –  Hazleton, PAOctober 30, 2018
Working for a global leader was a great experience for me. I loved working for Henkel and what the company represents. I left for family reasons and regret it wholeheartedly. Henkel is a stable company who strives for excellence and performance. It allows employees to do their job and stresses teamwork.

Challenging yet enjoyable place to work.
Lean Engineer Manager (Former Employee) –  Prescott, WIOctober 17, 2018
Henkel purchased a group of companies that is not what they normally do...being an "acquisition" company provides many challenges in deploying Henkel culture. You acquire a culture when you purchase a company which has existed for over 20 years, this in itself presents it's own challenges.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Local leadership

Dedicated and Experienced Team
Material Planner (Former Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYOctober 15, 2018
The team I worked with at Henkel was very knowledgeable and eager to take on new challenges. Being hired in a contract role to help the team transition to a new SAP system opened my eyes to the dedication and loyalty the team has to each other. The team taught me quite a bit during my time there. I definitely learned a lot and gained more experience there.
Pros
Experience, Telecommuting
Cons
No paid time off (for contact position) or benefits

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.

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.
