    I have been working at Elementis (more than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly work team for the most part. Excellent operators. Plant management is heading in the right direction under new leadership. Satisfying and difficult work.

    Cons

    No recognition for performance. Annual bonus gain sharing payout is essentially nonexistent. Callous global management team. "Everyone is Replaceable" culture. Subtle workplace hostility in the form of retaliatory emails CC to bosses to "throw people under the bus." High turnover due to poor compensation and culture. Salaries lower than industry average for engineers. Very low morale amongst the union employees. Stressful environment. Incredible pressure placed on operations team (production engineers, shift supervision, ops management) due to skeleton crew bare minimum staffing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. Get and retain engineers with better incentives. Make a realistic and achievable payout for yearly bonuses (5-12% is a standard range for successful production companies).

    I worked at Elementis

    Pros

    The ability to learn different aspects of various jobs. The exposure to understanding all phases of accounting / finance. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Senior Management did not respect its employees. Compensation is below market average. The location of the corporate headquarters in East St. Louis is an undesirable location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Mangement needs to be more cognizant of its employees. There needs to be equity sharing on all levels at Elementis Pigments.
