Pros

Depends in what position you have and who you brown nose with. If you play the game, then you are rewarded. If you are knowledgeable but you are critical of management and very out spoken, then you should look else where.

Cons

Upper Management has no clue what is going on.

Advice to Management

Realized that you don't need to act like big brother and recognize your employees. Stop creating an atmosphere for "yes men," and suck ups.

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people. The company is a leader in it's industries with innovative products. I felt valued and the company invested a lot in making sure I had the equipment and the training to excel.

    The work environment is laid back and informal, everyone is willing to pitch in and help you on a project. People are approachable and nice even when deadlines are tight.

    The relationship with the parent company (Mettler Toledo) is mostly positive. In the marketing department they provide you with a lot of tools that make your job easier (CMS, CRM, Design Guidelines, Email System).

    Cons

    The senior and mid level management all have a background in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering. That means if you are in the Marketing department you will most likely be getting your orders from a Chemist who is not knowledgeable about Marketing. This also means that opportunities for advancement are very limited for people without a background in Chemistry.

    AutoChem was formed by Mettler Toledo from a group of formerly independent companies. There is a fare amount of residual resentment around the formation and the continued attempts by the president to make them work more closely together. This mostly comes from the old guard leadership and the younger guys are much more cooperative.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that Marketing is a discipline of it's own and that a PhD in Chemistry does not qualify you to do it.

    I think the leadership is already taking steps to better integrate the former companies (knows as Business Units).

  2. Not a great place to work

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    If you work hard you get more work. If you are lazy and talk a lot they won't expect much and you can take it easy
