    Pros

    Good company to work for in the chemical industry. Very good products and good brand recognition helps you a lot when you are before customers.

    Cons

    Organizational changes every 2-3 years sometimes mess up the structure and give everyone hard times. The company hyas transformed very much in the past 5 years which deteriorated the business climate. So, long term career planning is not easy any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should adopt longer term strategies to maintain competitiveness and should focus less on short term financial return.

    Pros

    Good working environment; people are treated with decency.
    Offices are generally nice.
    Nice job of reshaping the company is generating great (unrealized?) potential.

    Cons

    Middle management is weak resulting in indecisiveness.
    Communication is also very weak.
    Career development is very poor, people apparently can only fill one role.
    Leadership is non-existent, survival mode management only.
    As with most large organizations, personal reputation management far exceeds management of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refinancing is important but it is too often the major corporate highlight. The business horizon has to be longer than 18 months. Focus on driving a dynamic vision through middle management to the rock face.
