    I have been working at Akzo Nobel Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    An enjoyable company to work for, opportunities to move internally and work on overseas assignments. Great values and support of community causes across the globe. A proactive approach to flexible working for many roles and a genuine willingness to support its people . I genuinely enjoy working for Akzonobel.

    Cons

    Too high an overlap of pay within a graded system meaning potentially huge differences in pay for people undertaking the same work with the same expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap reference points in pay grades as they are inconsistent applied and causes employee dissatisfaction
