    Great people but 'flavor of the day' management that lacks focus and creates constant churn.

    Assistant Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Fords, NJ

    ProsGood people, competitive pay, leadership position in some product areas. Life can be very good if you are in the Philadelphia headquarters.

    ConsUpper management that is addicted to consultants and hasn't had an original idea in 5 years. The combining of the Petroleum Additives and Urethanes businesses makes absolutely no sense. The Chemtura world is now divided between those that are in the Philadelphia office and the rest of company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand the businesses you are running and stand for something. Take note that every business divested by Chemtura has gone on to prosper once out from the chaos of Chemtura.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Middlebury, CT

    ProsGood benefits, good prospects for promotions and transferring within departments.

    ConsToo many middle managers, lack of talent and intelligence in the management pool, lack of encouraging workers to move ahead on the part of management. No telecommuting opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive employees more opportunities to grow and expand in their areas of interest and ability. Allow for and develop telecommuting opportunities for all employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall it was a good experience though could be quite stressfull with all ups/downs of the manufacturing industry.

    Management (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible Work Schedule
    Decent Benefits

    ConsShotgun approach (adds additional unnecessary stress)
    Last minute descisions without proper input to key players (see above)
    Corporate runs the show!
