    Though disappointing thus far, I am optomistic- provided an openness for change happens.

    Pros

    Hexion pays well. Also, there is a chance for a major merger in the near future which should provide for some more opportunites for advancement. Also, Hexion is bringing in younger and "hipper" associates which should influence the current "old school" culture.

    Cons

    Hexion is facing tough market conditions right now, like its parent company. Also, a failed merger with Huntsman has proven painful. Additonally, the culture is currently "old school", with an unwillingness to change or move to the modern age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be open to change. Even if things have worked in the past, there is usually room for improvement. In today's market/business environment you have to be dynamic. Shed your old ways and be open to change.

    I worked at Momentive full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly employees and plenty of time for birthday events on site to get to know people. The employee benefits were ok.

    Cons

    Strong revolving door company with high employee turnover. People with expertise or professionals do not seem to last long at this company. People with little expertise or willingness to develop knowledge found in some management positions. Finance professionals should steer clear of this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
