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

Pros

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

Cons

Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

Move 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.

    Pros

    Good people, good work, good environment, benefits
    I've learned so much at OLIN. I really love my coworkers and believe that we are doing important work at OLIN. Everyone has room to grow and it's a dynamic and interesting place.

    Cons

    Occasional to consistent long hours, demanding expectations, and critical thinkers (if you want to consider those things as cons)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is not the appropriate place for this advice.
