    I have been working at Arkema US full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company invests a lot in safety, provides good benefits and compensation, but work-life balance is sometimes off as reduced headcounts sometimes result in people having to handle more than they should. Very good opportunities for mobility within the company.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is sometimes a negative. Each business unit has its own unique culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider increasing headcount to improve work-life balance.
