Should Have Been a Great Place for a Career

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Columbus, MS

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
