    I worked at Infineum full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company treats employees well. Benefits are excellent. Ethical organization that is stable but risk adverse. Considerable autonomy in role as assigned, and excellent work-life balance. Able to work from home in certain situations.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement: people tend to stay in their roles for years at a time (even if they have outgrown them). Company does not value employees who are not chemical engineers as highly or promote them as quickly....even if the role in question does not require a chemical engineer.

    Pros

    Great mentorship and opportunities for young employees. Flexible schedule allowed for excellent work-life balance. Developed my leadership abilities. Fun and challenging from the beginning.

    Cons

    Tough industry with tight profit margins makes work a little stressful at times and does not allow for opportunity for big salary growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue offering great opportunities and mentorship of young employees. The opportunity to be involved in big projects early on is one of the biggest advantages to working at Infineum.

    I have been working at Infineum full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been working in this company for more than 5 years . What I like most about this company is that it has a culture of mutual respect and there is plenty of opportunity to network with my fellow colleagues. To start, we have frequent tea breaks session at the canteen . I come in about 9 am , about 9.10 colleagues will go for tea breaks , great morning catch up for about 30-40 mins . Then lunch is at 11.30 . Well we don't come back at 12.30 , most of the time 1pm then we start work . Then around 3 ,we will gather colleagues for another round of tea break and networking session . Isn't this great . I love this company . Then some colleagues will leave at 4 , if they feel that they are done for the day ., doesn't matter what time we come in . Some colleagues know my tea break timing and I told them not to look for me during this timing. They listened and they respected my need to have tea breaks . Great mutual respect .

    Cons

    I hope the company don't put a stop to the tea break culture . This is one of the things I look forward to each day.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change anything . The culture here is great
