This company has a very professional, but not strict environment. Everyone is friendly, competent and cares about their work. They are very open to change and offer excellent workshops to help you advance, not only in areas you directly work in, but other areas of the business as well. There is a great work-life balance, and there is a lot of oppotunity to advance, even if it can take some time. There are also several business units to be a part of, and they're very focused on sustainable chemicals and innovation.
There can occasionally be a disconnect between upper management and those lower on the totem pole, but for the most part everything is straight forward and there is ample communication. There are also some difficulties having similar business units in other countries, but they work hard to facilitate communication and allow for free-flowing work between each location.
