    Pros

    Great products, little accountability ( from top to bottom), aging equipment that requires constant maintenance, run to fail mode ensuring chaos maintenance and OVERTIME-yay, knee-jerk reaction to equipment failures-yay more OT.

    Cons

    Cronyism, nepotism and politics are the order of the day. Stay in the "most-favored nation" status or a bad day is in your future.

    Advice to Management

    Any 1st line that hasn't progressed to 2nd line in 8 years please move on. Any 2nd line that won't enforce this-please move on. Any 3rd line that wont spend time on the floor-please move on.

    Pros

    For the most part the company is stable and strives to keeps its employees safe. Salaries are a little higher than national average and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    It is hard for minorities to move up here. There is a lot of nepotism at the plants and it makes it hard to work here if you are an outsider. The hiring and promotion practices are biased. Human resources makes up rules as they go. Too many conflicting policies.

    Advice to Management

    Please get a handle on your HR managers and resources. Every plant has a very different process. Make sure the people in these positions are proactive, trustworthy and knowledgeable.

    Pros

    Good camaraderie at my site. A lot of learning opportunities are presented though there isn't always time to fit them in. I believe in the science I'm doing. Recognition awards for employees who go out of their way to help someone out.

    Cons

    Easy to feel disconnected from the big picture in such a large organization. Too much bureaucracy. I feel like the core values are just paid lip service to but ignored for profits. Health benefits in the past few years have gotten significantly worse. Feels stuck in an old corporate mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Have better lines of communication, especially during turbulent times such as the spin of of Chemours.

    long hours at work sometimes

    Advice to Management

    continue to allow for mid career people to advance quicker, it seems as you get to mid level advancement starts to stale.
