    I have been working at Arkema

    Pros

    Location, if you live near Philadelphia. International, chances for travel and global experience.

    Cons

    Talk of long-term vision and growth by senior management, but focus on short-term results, often at the expense of the future. Micro-management, lack of trust of subordinates to do jobs properly. Focus on numerical details rather than growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your managers to manage and don't redo their jobs for them.
