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

    Pros

    Great pay and above average benefits kept me coming back each week. Olin offered educational assistance to its employees in East Alton which was an added benefit as well.

    Cons

    The forced overtime, poor management, and lack of respect towards dedicated and hard working employees has made working for Olin Winchester a miserable existence. If your in the click you got it made, but get on the other side of the fence and there is hell to pay whether your a responsible employee or not. A "hostile work environment" in a Machine Shop, what does that say for this company?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and value every employee in our organization.

    I have been working at Olin full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and above average benefits, many employment locations available. Potential for increased profits and growth via improved leadership.

    Cons

    Poor managerial approach from middle management and up. Very confrontational, little to no teamwork between salary and hourly personnel and union. Little to no accountability across all employees. Senior management places little to no value on employee well being, despite constant espousing of said values. Deep rooted mistrust between senior management and hourly employees has lead to a very antagonistic relationship and unpleasant work environment for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move into the 21st century, you treat your employees as an expense but they are really your biggest and best investment. Great employees are made with great leadership not found and great employees can become poor employees with mismanagement. Match your actions to your stated values.
