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

    Pros

    Many technical employees of the company and administrations are Ivy League colleges graduates. Many such graduates are especially among the Management/Administration including the CEO.

    Cons

    Not enough managers! More Managers! More Global managers! Employees with the longest possible titles which should include words: Principal, Lead, New Products, Senior, Head of, etc.

    Former Employee - Middle Manager

    I worked at Dymax full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good products, some good people work there.

    Cons

    President has given up his citizenship to the U.S., management practices (do as i say not as i do). if you don't agree, with management your days are numbered. Some safety practices are non compliant. Spend money carelessly on rearranging interior of building with very little benefit to efficiency or productivity, company has created a culture of fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave, bring in new people that will gain the respect of the employees or sell the company.

    I have been working at Dymax full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced, investing for growth, growing company, global expansion, R&D investments, US manufacturing, hard working leadership team, location is good.

    Cons

    Very political environment, pointing fingers is very common practice (against CEO's efforts to minimize blame games), disconnection between sales and research teams, insufficient communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New research manager just talks and does nothing

    I have been working at Dymax full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being a member of the Dymax family means being part of a great team. I appreciate the supportive and open atmosphere – there is always someone willing to help if needed. The personal contact with colleagues of other locations becomes easier and better with every single call or email as we´re getting more familiar over the time and the team is growing closer together globally. One has the chance to take over responsibility for tasks outside of the actual job description, which is very motivating and you always give more than just 100%.

    Cons

    I´m looking forward to an optimisitc future, no cons at this point of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay open-minded and enable open and regular communication throughout the company.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Torrington, CT
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Torrington, CT

    I have been working at Dymax full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dymax is a growing company, it has what I would imagine to be a "Start Up" feel. Dymax is expanding internationally at a rapid pace. This is a great place to work if you want to make an impact. It is a fast paced high energy environment. Management is investing in the company greatly, and are very good to their employees, i.e. tuition reimbursement, flexible schedules, company picnics, holiday parties, etc...

    Cons

    With all of this change going on sometimes people get nervous. There are new managers in place and they are holding people accountable for more, and some people who have been sitting back and comfortable for years are not liking it. There is a culture clash of Old Vs. New.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course, the company is growing. We are moving in the right direction.

    I worked at Dymax full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Okay pay, some good people, some of the departments are really good

    Cons

    Managers feed into department drama, people given more authority then others at the same level, people in management positions that have absolutely NO management experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try showing and actual interest in the department you are running and the things said department does, instead of trying to get the "popular" vote
