    Too much politics. Mid-sized company that thinks it is a giant corporation

    I worked at A. Schulman

    Pros

    Their corporate values are "Open, Honest, Listen, and Accountable"

    Cons

    The upper management does not come close to following their corporate values. No vision or leadership from upper management. The company is adrift. They are just looking for someone to buy them out. Lot of management from Goodyear that think they are still at that size corp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro-managing everything, especially when none of you came up through the business and don't know what you are talking about half the time. Cut out the politics!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at A. Schulman in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went on 3 different interviews (2 in person and 1 phone). All of the interviews were very laid back and everyone was easy to talk to.
