    Lack of Communication prohibts growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Adrian, MI

    ProsBenefits and flexibility of hours are great.

    Best fit for me of any of the companies I've worked for. I truly enjoy working there

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSome of the best people I have ever worked with. For me it's working with family than just work colleagues.

    ConsA lot of changes have occurred over the last year and I have seen a lot of good friends of mine leave the company. It goes with the territory.

    Medium size company with a small company feel

    Engineer (Current Employee) Middlebury, CT

    ProsGreat legacy in the past, long tradition of technology development. The smaller size give you a intimate feeling of the people you work with. Good work/life balance.

    ConsLower pay comparing to bigger chemical companies, decisions are constantly being changed. Company came back from bankcruptcy but still struggling to grow

    New lease on life in the AgroSolutions business

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Middlebury, CT

    ProsNew senior management in 2011 has made us profitable again. It feels like we are winners after a multi-year losing streak. Opportunities for advancement are reappearing. Non-contributors are being removed or leaving on their own. Management decisions are being made and actions taken after years of paralysis.

    ConsTop business managers are tough, sometimes too tough. We don't always understand what their motives are, but we are coming to trust their judgment based on the results. We are short staffed and corporate support roles in finance, legal and HR let us down too often.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not lose your courage. It will take a few more years to solve the problems created by the years of mismanagement leading to our 2009 bankruptcy. Use a few more carrots to go along with the sticks.
