    I worked at LANXESS US as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great understanding from Management on work-life balance. Co-workers are like your second family and easy to get along with. Time-off was a little different because it's a German-based company some of your usual holidays aren't recognized. Lots of opportunities to grow within the company and many locations to possible work from.

    Cons

    Compensation could use some work, but otherwise a pleasant company to be a part of.

  2.

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

    Pros

    Varied international and professional career routes to adapt to employee skills and interest
    Ideas encouraged and listened to
    Great long-tenure collegues with wide experience and deep company roots
    Respect for family and health priorities

    Cons

    Increasingly centralized and bureaucratic cya decision making process
    Some issues with delegation of authority

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the strength and agility of the many businesses and sites through too much central HQ "expertise" redoing local work.

    Recommends
