Great people with great company values.
A lot has changed in the last two years with market dynamics shifting for a part of the business that HSC serves. HSC has been in the polysilicon market for 50+ years and I don't see them exiting the business anytime soon. Due to the market dynamics for solar the company needed to make extremely hard decisions with cutting its work force in order to stay competitive in the market. These are decisions that every company has to make when market dynamics change. From what I hear HSC executed the layoffs with respect and dignity with offering long time employees excellent packages.
With Dow Corning being a majority stake holder in HSC there are so many opportunities for employees at both companies. It's very common for people to move back and forth between for HSC and Dow Corning. Career development is top notch and managers are always working for you and not against you.Cons
Not a lot of communication from upper management as things were happening over the last couple years. However, this has gotten a lot better over the last couple months.Advice to ManagementAdvice
