Linden Chemical Plant Intern

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Linden, NJ

I have been working at Infineum

Pros- excellent coop/internship program for undergraduate engineers
- challenging projects
- excellent support from more experienced engineers
- relax and easy going environment
- great culture among younger engineers
- opportunity to learn and grow as a process engineer in a plant environment

Cons- a lot of work to do leading to long hours (occasionally)
- 24/7 continuous process demands a lot responsibility and creates some stress

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to allow young engineers to work in the plant and develop as future process engineers but try to establish a more balanced work/life ratio to relieve some stress for up and coming engineers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good company - with great benefits

Finance Executive (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at Infineum full-time for less than a year

ProsI enjoyed the people I worked with. It was a friendly and fun atmosphere and I actually enjoyed going into work each morning. Staff get to travel together to other countries as part of team building. There seems to be a strong brand identity within the company.

ConsLimited room for growth, many staff have been working in the same position for many years

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pleasant company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Oxford, England (UK)

I have been working at Infineum

ProsGlobal, mid size scale allows you to work on different things if you want to, generally cares for its employees, pays well, good job security

ConsSmall size and long tenure of existing people can limit/slow opportunities for progression. Cost containment is becoming a pain in the neck, salami-slicing small things all the time when they shoudl be investing in growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou're doing most of the right things, hearts are in the right place, and there are a lot worse out there... get the balance between cost-shaving and investment right

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
