    Learn a lot, develop practical skills, but watch out for office politics.

    Placement Engineer (Former Employee) Sunderland, North East England, England

    ProsIf you get in the right team, it's really rewarding - you can learn a lot from some very intelligent, experienced engineers. Development of practical skills is also emphasised which is something I enjoyed.

    ConsOften quite fractious relations between different teams, and between the engineering and production staff. Unrealistic SM targets also an issue - being compared to a brand new factory is not something you want to hear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication between engineering teams needs to be improved. Comparing a brand new factory to one that is being constantly updated is not helpful.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good work Environment, good benefits

    Brand Intelligence Officer (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsYou get very good benefits. It is an international work environment with more than 20 nationalities. Nice and friendly people to work with.

    ConsIt is in "Paris" but actually the offices are quite far from the city center. May take long until you get a promotion. Working with the headquarters is Japan is very challenging

    Well organised with positive 'can do' culture; pressure to perform but not much recognition.

    Engineer (Current Employee) Newcastle, England

    ProsPositive goal achievement culture, well organised, reasonable training opportunities - e.g. 80% sponsorship for higher education.

    ConsLimited career opportunities. Long working hours expected - seen as the 'norm' by management, therefore little appreciation shown. Pressure to perform, but little difference in reward between good performance and average performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOn a company level senior management are doing a fair job maintaining business competitiveness. On an individual level performance and reward (recognition/remuneration/career prospects) are poorly linked.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
