    I have been working at Infineum

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits, strong safety culture. Abiltiy to occasionally work from home for some jobs. Some leaders are so good you feel you would work for nothing (Sadly, this is the exception).

    Cons

    No career path for anyone with out Engineering Degree or PhD and many of them are not qualified to be "leaders" no matter how much training you give them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The career path brings unqualified people into new positions just long enough for them to mess things up, then sends them on to the next group to destroy morale.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Infineum as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    A lot of exposure to different aspects of the company throughout the variety of the projects assigned. .

    Cons

    You might get stuck with projects that are useless in terms of gaining valuable experience, matter of luck. You are valued for your personality rather than the quality of your work.

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Small enough to not feel lost. Good opportunity to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    Cronyism, lack of leadership in certain areas (some areas are fine), mature industry, flat organization = little room for growth. Little or no flex time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management out of touch with front-line.
