    I have been working at Element Materials Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and large variety of work

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care about the people doing the work. No communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and help your employees to grow, take interest in knowing what your employees actually do. Communication is horrible and the managements new ideas about how to help the location are only half thought out and no good plans are ever made.

    I have been working at Element Materials Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Material experts. Good exposure to Aerospace, Automotive, Oil and gas sectors.
    Small Company?
    Management sends everyone to self development training.

    Cons

    New middle management almost yearly. Dissatisfied higher ups will drive overtime to achieve metrics but without adding additional resources- it hurts moral.
    Very loose corporate structure- everyone is spread out.
    Organization is reactive not proactive.
    Current outlook is on future cash flows and cash reserves (focus on penny pinching).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acquiring. Start with people- focus on your employees and your clients.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Element Materials Technology

    Pros

    Comparable pay with competitors. We all have to work to make a living and in this economy is it good to have a job.

    Cons

    The management seems to be disconnected with the people doing the actual work. The upper management is totally unaware of the dealings of the middle management.

    No opinion of CEO
