    Pros

    Great working environment at the West Lafayette site. Always seemed to have uncertainty in the company with where it was heading. Good working experience

    Cons

    Never seemed to have well defined goals or objectives that were also attainable for the future of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more definitive in future goals and relate better with all employees. Keep in mind even the lowest on the corporate ladder.

    Pros

    A great chance for Worldwide Organization Experience. Middlebury centric but worldwide locations.

    Cons

    Change is constant. You are either in or out. In the last few years most people have moved on.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a stable work environment for the employees. Constant change is high stress.


  8. Good people; tense, depressing environment

    Pros

    Many good, smart people work at Chemtura. Unfortunately, the nature of the company's products, the bad economy and the inept leadership at all levels have led the company to Chapter 11. The company has gone through layoff after layoff to no avail, resulting in the departure of many good, hard-working people.

    Cons

    Lack of success, poor morale.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with more dignity and respect.


  9. Good for somebody who likes hard, hot, heavy work , strict environment and lots of overtime

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Too 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 Management

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