Oppressive work environment with every level of management turning a blind eye.

Network Engineer (Former Employee)
Fairlawn, OH

I worked at OMNOVA Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThere are some really great people that work at OMNOVA, especially at the plant level. I always had a great experience at any of the plants I visited.

ConsOld school fat cat mentality in corporate management. If you were promoted to manager or director, they would waste untold amounts of money moving walls, and infrastructure to ensure your office was larger than someone who had a lesser title. If you work in IT there is no work/life balance. You are expected to be available at a beckoning call. IT management all the way up the chain is very petty and self preserving, to the detriment of their direct reports.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo right by your direct reports and stop breeding a culture of sadism.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Multi-craft Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee)
Columbus, MS

I have been working at OMNOVA Solutions

Prosa pay check and some benifits there are some good people to work with and it was a great company to work for when i started in 1988 .

Consthe working conditions are very hot in the summer months i have seen it a hunderd and eight degrees in the building . its a plant that uses lot of chemicals so it bad on your health !!!

Advice to Senior Managementstop thinking about yourselfs and start thinking about the people who made you millions of dollars and gave up there lives and familys to fatten your wallet so your family could live on easy street !!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
