I worked at OMNOVA Solutions full-time

Pros

There were some very good people who had worked their for many years.

Cons

The Columbus Mississippi plant was in the past one of the most profitable plants that Omnova had. But rather that applying sound business decisions, it chose to close the plant that could have handled all the business of 4 others and keep the others limping along until they can get around to closing them as well. Bottom line was that the company want to get rid of the Columbus plant and done so for just that sake. It had nothing to do with business decisions at all. As we were told, "We did not understand big business". They were right, we do not understand big businees when it is doing stupid things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You cannot shrink your self to profitablility. You have to learn to manage the business not butcher it.

    I worked at OMNOVA Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Omnova is no longer in Columbus, MS. It was a great place to work for the area.

    Cons

    It was a shame that the Columbus, MS plant was forced to close.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your customer service reps are the key to your business. They do far more than your outside sales reps/business development. You should show more value in your CSR's. They really do hold the key to repeat business. I was able to salvage a huge account-Peavey-just because I was upfront with them about product availability on custom material.
