PolyOne has great image externally. Internally operates more like PolyEight.

    PolyOne was a great experience, but the work can get monotonous and boring very quickly.

    Pros

    Great pay and the people are genuinely nice and supportive.

    Cons

    The work can get very boring very fast. I mean, it's plastics. How exciting can that get? Something needs to be done to alleviate the monotony.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more vested interest in the mental and emotional health of your employees. Sometimes the mind cannot handle another minute of staring at a computer and that should be seen as normal and ok.

    Pros

    -Initiative is rewarded and encouraged
    -Definitely no feeling of excess in the company - they run a very lean operation
    -Good balance of managers and senior non-managers
    -Great place to learn how to cut costs

    Cons

    -treatment of and reliance upon contractors is appalling
    -VIP/non-VIP class division is disturbingly overt
    -If you would not fit into a desired mold as an employee, there is no hope of being hired permanently
    -corporate culture is very closed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some of your contractors, or at least pay them better. There will come a point at which cutting staff to the bone and maintaining a frozen corporate mentality will diminish morale and scare away talent.
