I have been working at PolyOne

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.

    Former Employee - Maintenance in Orangeville, ON (Canada)

    I worked at PolyOne full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits,

    some experienced long term employees. small manufacturing scale, know every one by name.

    Most workers all share there experiences and help out.

    Cons

    Systemic culture issues or lack of culture, management on a perpetual witch hunt, too lost in the ``point the finger`` etc... to see what is going on around them or to be effective good leadership.

    ``Honesty`` ,``Integrity`` ``Respect`` not here !

    Work flow up and downs, short notice use your holidays up first..... or there`s no work next shift.

    They can`t seem to get there own policies training and procedures straight, everything changes to suit the moment. `` Lack of integrity``

    I`ve never seen a management group that unorganized and unable plan work with some fore
    thought and insight considering the many years and experience with the same old equipment and set up. Fallow through or making any kind of meaning full decision for the future is a miss here. ``Dead wood``

    No ``Aspri De Corps`` every one just works there. The bottom dollar aditiude is killing what

    is soon to be dead equipment and resources. ``lack of respect``

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on the way your going and your problems will fix you.

    ``World Class`` is no were near what is going on here.

    A full time active HR person, better hire two.
