    I have been working at Stepan full-time

    Pros

    Veteran staff is knowledgeable and for the most part, friendly and helpful. Some departments offer flexible hours.

    Cons

    The majority of veteran managers demonstrate little or no integrity and leadership skills. They are very poor communicators. Many of these managers claim they don't have the time to provide thorough instructions. Employees have to guess what they are supposed to do in relation to a given project and the outcome of the project suffers. When aspects of the project have not been completed correctly, managers will immediately blame the employee(s). These managers are unfamiliar with the number of duties for which their reports are responsible. They are not equitable in allocating duties/projects and exhibit blatant favoritism when doing so. Rather than address an issue, they ignore it, hoping it will go away. They are stubborn and will not listen to valuable employee input. Because of key veteran managers' refusal to listen to employees, the company recently lost 10+ million USD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mandatory management training for mid-level managers (15 or fewer years with the company). Offer a retirement package to those senior-level managers (annual salary of $150,000+) having more than 15 years with the company.
