    Good company, bad management

    Scientist (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe level of science and technology was good. This coupled with a very smart and friendly workforce was the highlight of working at Cytec.

    ConsThe management team was extremely poor. There was very little support of long range plans with many of the upper management more concerned about their own place in the pecking order. There was also a very strong Belgium bias.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider everyone's potential and contributions, not just by nationality.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    good learning, bad growth opportunities

    Research Engineer (Current Employee)
    Stamford, CT

    Prosgood people. good place to learn.

    Conslack of team work. management has no clue what it is doing or where it wants to go. management makes its own decision without consulting the key people involved.

    Advice to Senior Managementfocus on a few projects and make sure the key team members are in place. think about the immediate long term to ensure project can meet its completion. compensate and reward team members appropriately.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
