Former Employee - Senior Accountant in Middlebury, CT
Former Employee - Senior Accountant in Middlebury, CT

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

Pros

Extremely proactive senior management group bent on turning a floundering company into a solid chemical company. In doing so setting up a core business of profitable portfolio groups.

Cons

Middle management very rigid for this most part creating an uncomfortable ease among employees. The fear of being laid off by a restructure to create better financials.

    I worked at Chemtura full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay pretty well. Challenging work environment.

    Cons

    Expected to be "on the clock" 24/7. Incompetent Sr Management. No loyalty to "the troops". Chrurn and Burn mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the firm (if you get the opportunity). Ciba did it to the betterment of employees (BASF is a machine).
