Don't do it!!
Management is a gong show! Not friendly, hits on employees, power trip. Bullying staff with no clear direction. Horrible experience!!! Find somewhere else to work.

Great team members and management.
Required a strong written and verbal communication skills with the ability to partner across departments to meet the company's needs. I learned a lot and was able to grow my skills and prepare to advance my career.
Worked with dedicated and enthusiastic professional. Management consistently gives outstanding feedback on jobs done. Henkel offers workshops and courses. Proven expertise in establishing rapport and building trust with peers and vendor is encouraged. A variety of backgrounds, including first generation college students works here..

Good company to work for
Gained a lot of experience in customer service, communicating with internal and external customers to resolve problems, organized fun events, etc.

Very professional and fair management. Enjoyed working there. Great benefits, fair bonuses, free lunches during meetings, sports events, etc.


Customer Service department was fast paced, stressful at times, but manageable. Customers appreciated how I handled things. Employees were well appreciated by the management.


If there is an opportunity, I will definitely go back and work there again!
Pros
Flexibility with personal time off for emergencies, doctor's appts, etc.
Cons
None I can think of

Worked on contract for one year-reporting to Credit Manager who sat in US
Was contracted for I year to help resolve old past due debts and relieve Credit analyst on vacation.

Reporting to a Manager who sat in US - work was delegated so a typical day was predetermined.

A well set organisation with advanced and modern processes and procedures. Learnt collection system called Get paid and SAP.

Large stable German company - Good place to start your career and learn
Used to be a work hard, play hard kind of place. Management and culture has changed over the last years. Focus is now mostly internal and overwhelmingly driven by "wall street" forces.
Pros
Good people, great products, very diverse portfolio
Cons

Pros
Salary and benefits
Cons
No work life balance no advancement opportunities

Great company to work for. I was employed by Henkel, in various roles for 26 years
Have worked at Henkel for 26 yeas. This week my position was eliminated.
Great company to work for. Extremely fast paced work environment. Which I enjoy.

The majority of my career was in operational management, however I also had sales responsibility several years.I really enjoyed the sales role as it help me develop into an effective Manager who could accept several different points of view, when dealing with an issue.

Most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with people.

Hardest part was in 2008, when Henkel underwent an extensive re-organization. During this time I was responsible for terminating several staff members that I had worked with for a long time
Pros
Allowed to work independently
Cons
Nothing significant. Canadian operation was not current with certain corporate initiatives
