    Pros

    Great culture
    Wonderful IT team members
    Ethical company and CEO

    Cons

    Too HR heavy; HR is micromanaging too many things and sometimes act like bullys
    Lots of talk about work-life balance, but no real action in this area
    Implemented "flex work" program, but continue to deny many requests for job sharing and flexible work arrangements
    Lack of proper planning to execute projects
    Understaffed IT Service Desk
    Poorly executed Nalco merger
    Very political environment

    Advice to Management

    Start staffing the IT group appropriately, or you will continue to lose very talented, competent people. Outsourcing is not always the answer... It has already led to high turnover and loss of productivity across the company.


  2. Not the best place for women to work

    Pros

    Company car, and credit card, autonomy

    Cons

    It's a very male driven corporate culture. Women in the field (institutional division) are treated like novelties. They tried to institute a more inclusive culture by hiring a consulting firm, but failed miserably in the process. The local management team was very clicky and petty.
