    I worked at LANXESS Global


    They were very accepting and understanding of a fresh graduate.


    The business unit was going through reductions and layoffs as I was hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management was great. She had a great understanding of what each team member was contributing and how the business needed to change to keep pace with the market. Middle management was embedded in their old way of thinking and doing business.

    Interview Details

    Very short and up to the point. I was interviewed directly by the manager with whom I worked with for 4 successful years together. But normally the process is much more difficult and involves several stages and hours of preparation!
