    I have been working at Akzo Nobel Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, great products, great support around the role.

    Cons

    Does feel a bit cloak and dagger at times and you never know what business changes are being planned and then sprung upon you without any notice.

    I worked at Akzo Nobel Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Well known brand that is recognised. Large organisation and only prospects for those that fit into a particular regime.

    Cons

    Terrible training and high expectations of new people including part time ( Full timers).I noticed that within my team there were people who were favoured high above others. Several staff would take 3 hour lunch breaks and not do much work. Learning the paint codes could take the average person at least 6 months to feel comfortable with. Female environment and not male friendly. Shocking attitude towards those who... have gone through difficult times. Worst company i've ever been employed by.Training is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    What can i say, you protect your own and your own little groups of friends. Your understanding of personal issues is null and void.

    I have been working at Akzo Nobel Worldwide

    Pros

    Brand value. Nothing else really

    Cons

    Extremely unreasonable working environment. Ask the employees to stay back even when there is no work to show the top bosses. The superiors are not helpful. No transparency and change the profile of candidates after promising them a decent profile. Employee welfare is something this organisation does not even know how to spell. They forcefully ask the employees to work for 12-14 hours and do not even think about... their food or refreshment. What a nice way to run the company!!

    Advice to Management

    Everybody will leave the organisation if you do not mend your ways and your firm will be left with few senior people who are undeserving and cannot get job elsewhere.

    I have been working at Akzo Nobel Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Dream racing team is a great distraction from the rest of the poorly managed company. Color of the year is another unique and oddly European distraction.

    Cons

    #RudeClouseau who "manages" worldwide projects - cracking fireproofing 2x too thick and epoxy phenolic that has the measles after 3 months in 3 different yards.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the superficial, the nonsense and the short-sightedness, and this could be a pretty good company.
