    Everyone seems to be working 3 jobs at once!

    Director (Former Employee) Saint Louis, MO

    ProsPassionate people about the products and their jobs. Lost of opportunity for global work. Pay is at or above market when they want you.

    ConsLong hours, and huge reduction if workforce means everyone is working 3 jobs at once. People are not given a chance to succeed. HR does not compare to what exists in world class organizations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer some hope for the loyal people. A lot of good and loyal people just need to be given a chance to succeed and satisfaction will follow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Used to be a great place to work.

    Engineer (Current Employee) Pontiac, MI

    ProsDid not like the direction the company was going in. Was a mutual decision by both parties to part ways. Upper management often ignored what the lower level employees had to say. the arrogance in the way of doing business is a downfall.

    ConsPromotions are hard to come by. Upper managements goals and lower employees goals are not consistent with each other. Need to improve relations with employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen and stop the arrogance. Make goals clear and concise.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Cronyism is rampant

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood opportunities for those in the circle. Lots of great projects are coming up for engineers

    ConsCronyism is taken to a new level. Lots of politics. People who are part of the inner circle are promoted regularly or "saved" from firing due to incompetence. Unusually large presense in Belguim.....

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop robbing the company. Take a look at the bonus-to-revenue ratio at Solutia for top execs. Compare to a Fortune 50 company. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Achieving profit at all cost by upper management

    Manager (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsDecent starting pay. Office used to be in good location.

    ConsPoor communication from upper management. Try to achieve profit at all cost, thus sacrificing employees. Poor job evaluation - telling you you are doing good, but when comes to appraisel, they give you poor rank due to their system. Slow pay increment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
