I worked at Clariant (Switzerland)

Pros

The best reasons to work at Clariant are they are really active in the community, especially in the Charlotte, NC area. They make a real effort to be apart of numerous fundraisers for marathons and schools. They also participate in a meals on wheels program which deliver meals to the elderly. The company has a great benefits package and its in a great location.

Cons

Pay needs to be more competitive. They need to value young talent and give everyone a fair chance. It is very much a good old boys club in which you are either a member or an outsider.

Need to show more compassion for employees that are knowingly under bad management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make more of an effort to retain young talent.

    I have been working at Clariant (Switzerland) full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pretty free and nothing much to do. Pay is not fantastic but looking at the amountof work I need to do. Its really a steal.

    Cons

    Other than my immediate boss, the rest of the upper management are terrible. Everyone only care about themsleves and how mich money can be saved. The performance review system is totally non-existant! You don't get paid for what you deliver. The bonus is the same throughout the whole company irregardless of how much you deliver and how hard you work. Just sleep on the job, nobody cares..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop dreaming... You cannot save you way out of trouble. You need to generate revenue to get yourself out of trouble. Stop flying business class, most of the travelling that you are doing is wasting money because there is NO conclusion!!!
