They demand full support and cooperation, but give minimal feedback and provide no communication to employees.

Production Supervisor (Former Employee)

I worked at Olin

ProsSalary is average, but the overtime demands and overbearing. There is NO balance for work life and home life. If you wish to succeed you have to drink the kool-aid and devote yourself fully.

ConsThe only commitment Olin makes is to its shareholders, and short term balance sheets. Their is little to no respect for the employees. Upper management demands respect, but doesn't earn it or deserve it. The culture is best described as "straight out of the gulag".

Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees, and they will surprise you. They ARE YOUR BEST ASSETT. Don't preach values and ethics unless you are committed to them. Don't expect more from anyone else than you yourself are willing to give.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
