High and dry at Winchester

Adjuster (Current Employee)
East Alton, IL

I have been working at Olin full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood pay and above average benefits, many employment locations available. Potential for increased profits and growth via improved leadership.

ConsPoor managerial approach from middle management and up. Very confrontational, little to no teamwork between salary and hourly personnel and union. Little to no accountability across all employees. Senior management places little to no value on employee well being, despite constant espousing of said values. Deep rooted mistrust between senior management and hourly employees has lead to a very antagonistic relationship and unpleasant work environment for everyone.

Advice to Senior ManagementMove into the 21st century, you treat your employees as an expense but they are really your biggest and best investment. Great employees are made with great leadership not found and great employees can become poor employees with mismanagement. Match your actions to your stated values.

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