    I have been working at MEMC Electronic Materials full-time

    Pros

    Intelligent, motivated workforce. Global company, multiple learning opportunities, reasonable work-life balance.

    Cons

    People work in Silos, inter-departmental incentives are not aligned. No proper people management systems. Company has been unable to truly integrate its divisions and realize synergies. There isn't a united culture across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Repurchase shares and take the company private, put in place a long-range turnaround plan across 5-6 qtrs. Align incentives and set a unified culture of innovation, respect and performance across the company.
