    Good place to work. Benefits are competitive, and living / working in West Palm Beach is not too shabby either.

    I have been working at Oxbow Carbon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation are competitive; bonus' are paid when possibe. Lot's of good people to work with. Low turnover allows for people to really know how things work and not be a revolving door. Senior managment are approachable and actually remember you / your name. This does not happen in companies with thousands and 10s of thousands+ unless you are part of the top 1-2%. Not being a public company allows for some sanity away from decisions to meet your quarterly earnings, sometimes at the expense of better decisions by public companies. As Oxbow is smaller in people than its industry peers (1,000 vs. 10,000+), it is surprisingly nimble and you can make an impact much easier than the oppostive = lot's of people but very little capital and profit per person.

    Cons

    Some offices / plant locations to work in can be a challenge, especially in the more industrial areas in the southern US and remote areas in Europe / Asia. The travel associated can be a bit tiresome getting to those remote locations. I would say an expected amount of 'how we do business' compared to other companies this size and capitalization. Coming from a 'small' company (<200), or a 'large' one (>5,000) does require getting used to the culture; especially if from a different industry or business sector.
