    I have been working at OMNOVA Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)


    Strong middle management / director level / plant management. Dedicated, hard working employees.


    New HR destroyed culture quickly: HR leadership lack business savvy, are untrustworthy and incompetent. It can be argued that HR has created a hostile work environment in recent months.

    Lack of accountability: The CEO does not hold the executive level accountable including himself.

    The company has survived only due to the efforts of the director level and lower. These employees receive no leadership from the executive level.

    Retirements of president, Jim Hohman, and CFO, Mike Hicks, eliminated any accountability or leadership at the executive level.

    No work life balance: The employees work 60 plus hour weeks and continue to be squeezed to do more with less resources. It is never ending.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability needs to start from the type down. Try to reestablish the strong leadership and culture of accountability. Reevaluate leadership at executive level. The company was willing to risk an increase in turnover to move to Beechwood but a significant number of the 25% of employees that have left are your higher performers you should be trying to retain.
