    Excellent company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Linden, NJ

    ProsOffice culture is nice and company makes money so no haggling getting lot of things approved. Good bonuses and stable company.

    ConsSometimes, getting ahead in this company is difficult and it all depends on the management. Not much career path..

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing since the company is growing so something is being done right...

    Linden Chemical Plant Intern

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Linden, NJ

    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.

    Good company - with great benefits

    Finance Executive (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    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)

    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

    A very fair and successful company - treats its people well.

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

    ProsGlobal, highly ethical, respects those that work there, good degree of autonomy and trust, safe environment, variety in role, good development and high levels of professionalism, the Company is performing well.

    ConsBusiness to business - so doesn't have a visible brand. Could do things more quickly, but this is off-set by doing things right. A very stable organisaiton.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCould move the Company forward at a quicker pace. Continue to focus and respect those that work at Infineum. Keep the supportive culture.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
