    Pros

    Some of the best people I have ever worked with. For me it's working with family than just work colleagues.

    Cons

    A lot of changes have occurred over the last year and I have seen a lot of good friends of mine leave the company. It goes with the territory.

    I worked at Chemtura full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Extremely proactive senior management group bent on turning a floundering company into a solid chemical company. In doing so setting up a core business of profitable portfolio groups.

    Cons

    Middle management very rigid for this most part creating an uncomfortable ease among employees. The fear of being laid off by a restructure to create better financials.

    Great legacy in the past, long tradition of technology development. The smaller size give you a intimate feeling of the people you work with. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lower pay comparing to bigger chemical companies, decisions are constantly being changed. Company came back from bankcruptcy but still struggling to grow

    Pros

    Interesting, ever changing work!!!
    Great people to work with making it a pleasure to come to work.
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Not impressed with the way upper management runs the company. Way to top heavy. Location leaves something to be desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out upper middle management, reduce upper management bonuses and reinvest back into the company and your employees!!

    I have been working at Chemtura full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    New senior management in 2011 has made us profitable again. It feels like we are winners after a multi-year losing streak. Opportunities for advancement are reappearing. Non-contributors are being removed or leaving on their own. Management decisions are being made and actions taken after years of paralysis.

    Cons

    Top business managers are tough, sometimes too tough. We don't always understand what their motives are, but we are coming to trust their judgment based on the results. We are short staffed and corporate support roles in finance, legal and HR let us down too often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not lose your courage. It will take a few more years to solve the problems created by the years of mismanagement leading to our 2009 bankruptcy. Use a few more carrots to go along with the sticks.
