Does DSM offer parental leave?

Pros

decent pay, good benefits, big company resources

Cons

Poor leadership has driven out most of the good employees. Leadership is invisible and inaccessible both in the office and at customers and spend all of their time and energy on managing upwards. Plenty of time and expense spent on putting on a good power point story to the bosses while the organization and customers are left dissatisfied and disgruntled. The couple of good leaders we had are gone and replaced by junior managers who are inexperienced in people leadership and customer relationships. Sadly, the work environment and level of trust has diminished over the last few years and DSM is not the company it used to be. Typical corporate slow decision making, lots of process, siloed functions and no innovation for years. HR not attending to the employees and pushing off responsibilities to admins. No real HR leadership or accountability. HR seen as a cya function, not calling out the years of leadership issues or alerting the global leadership of the regional issues. No trust in HR. Employees are afraid to raise issues as they are labeled as high maintenance and serious infractions are not addressed if the employee is favored by the big bosses.

Advice to Management

Look under the hood. People are afraid to speak up anymore, but try to talk to the employees and customers about how they view DSM these days. If you speak to the right people you will see that both employees and customers do not believe that the leaders care about anything more than their egos, images and career movements.
