I have been working at Mettler-Toledo Autochem, Inc. full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Good benefits, great people. The company is a leader in it's industries with innovative products. I felt valued and the company invested a lot in making sure I had the equipment and the training to excel.
The work environment is laid back and informal, everyone is willing to pitch in and help you on a project. People are approachable and nice even when deadlines are tight.
The relationship with the parent company (Mettler Toledo) is mostly positive. In the marketing department they provide you with a lot of tools that make your job easier (CMS, CRM, Design Guidelines, Email System).Cons
The senior and mid level management all have a background in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering. That means if you are in the Marketing department you will most likely be getting your orders from a Chemist who is not knowledgeable about Marketing. This also means that opportunities for advancement are very limited for people without a background in Chemistry.
AutoChem was formed by Mettler Toledo from a group of formerly independent companies. There is a fare amount of residual resentment around the formation and the continued attempts by the president to make them work more closely together. This mostly comes from the old guard leadership and the younger guys are much more cooperative.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Recognize that Marketing is a discipline of it's own and that a PhD in Chemistry does not qualify you to do it.
I think the leadership is already taking steps to better integrate the former companies (knows as Business Units).RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
