    I worked at Infineum

    Pros

    Old fashioned 70's atmosphere but great benefits. They really try to retain their employees and consultants. Major SAP environment and opportunities to go overseas for training. Even in a lay-off situation they try to place their employees in various positions. They have a Union that represents and fights for their employees. There is a Company picnic every summer, and opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    Nothing bad at all but can you add some interior design to the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing it's all good!

    I have been working at Infineum as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of Projects to work on, so u are not bored. If u run out of something to do, all you need to do is inform your supervisor and you will definitely be flooded with opportunities to learn. Work life balance is great at the technological center, cant say for the plant though.

    Cons

    No cons. calm atmosphere, laid back employees, friendly.

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

    Pros

    Fair pay, hard working and smart coworkers, company has been very successful and profitable in the last few years, opportunities to take initiative and demonstrate potential, quick advancement for people that stick with them.

    Cons

    Offices are old and outdated, management obsesses over safety to the point of absurdity (people will call you out for not using a handrail or not washing your hands).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remodel the office space!

    Keep doing what you are doing since the company is growing so something is being done right...

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Linden, NJ
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in 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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue 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.

    I have been working at Infineum full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Informality, and a mostly friendly environment. Safety orientation. A certain integrity (although things are occasionally hidden). Amazing business results hence bonuses.

    Cons

    Dependence on selected few. Quiet tolerance of laziness and underperformers (check out that Singapore review about tea breaks!). Micro management by too many leaders. And it's true, unless you are a chemical graduate or chem. engineer, progression chances are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work further and seriously to apply consistent expectations about performance.

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

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