    Pros

    Sun Chemical was a good place to get a start on working with SAP, working with billing, invoicing and basic accounting.

    Cons

    Sun chemical offered very little room for advancement and the pay was not particularly good.

    Advice to Management

    Sun chemical management should provide greater room for advancement and offer better compensation packages.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. First line management seem to be in tune with employees.

    Cons

    Senior leadership are preparing for a mass exodus (judging by their ages) into retirement. There does not seem to be a proper preparation for that day. Also, there are no employee events held any longer, tuition reimbursement has been cut out, even during profitable years.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and prepare for the future.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits and great co-workers

    Cons

    My location has been part of the company for 10 years now and they still appear to be out of the loop and somewhat disorganized at times. I've been with them for two years.

    Advice to Management

    Make feeling proud to be a Sun Chemical employee a bigger part of the company culture at all of the plant sites.

    Very rewarding and valuable, but it lacked appreciation from upper management.

    Pros

    Those not in an upper management position are great and always helpful. Projects tend to get done quickly.

    Cons

    There was a lack of communication between upper management and those below. Even with the knowledge and experience of those not in the upper management positions, upper management tended to ignore many ideas and requests the rest had to offer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so narrow minded and self-righteous. Plenty of people have great ideas which could help many areas of Sun Chemical prosper and achieve new goals. Just be willing to listen more, collaborate on new ideas and stop thinking your way or the highway. It's a company that depends on new ideas and the production of those ideas, just listen.

    Pros

    People were friendly. Flexible hours and the pay wasn't too bad.

    Cons

    Incompetent management. Policies and procedures would change too frequently. Some backstabbing between employees and even management.

    Advice to Management

    Just be a little more receptive to employee feedback and suggestions. The employees are the cogs of the system, not the managers hiding away in their offices.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the flexibility in my schedule, especially working with me on continuing my education. Loved what I did and who I worked with. Clear performance goals for each year's review process. Ability to easily change safety and operating procedures to increase productivity and create a safer work environment.

    Cons

    Benefits were being decreased and removed, i.e. tuition reimbursement and retirement plan canceled. Promised promotion two years in a row and never received it. Very little encouragement of knowledge building and no exchange of information between departments to help share knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to advance their degrees and knowledge. Provide more opportunities to network and exchange ideas both internally and externally. Perform management evaluation from the employees perspective to know how the two interact.

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Fantastic People

    Company still has comparitively good benefits, namely medical and 401K programs.

    Cons

    Serious Morale Issues
    Senior Managment is Completely Out of Touch

    Round after round of cuts has done nothing but kill morale in all parts of the business. Meanwhile there was fairly widespread "knowledge" that Senior Leadership still got bonuses at the expense of the line staff!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people!
