    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Consider everyone's potential and contributions, not just by nationality.

    Pros

    good people. good place to learn.

    Cons

    lack 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 Management

    focus 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.
