Pros

Very supportive culture. Strong emphasis on employee satisfaction. Great company to retire from. Growing emphasis on professional growth. Great business processes as recognized across the industry.

Cons

The culture was not very conducive for aggressive and fast-tracked growth. The high percentage of long-term employees meant a newcomer (especially a fresh graduate) felt like they had a long way to go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage aggressive and risk-taking behavior. Continue to recognize and pay attention to the "voice of the employee" even post-acquisition. Highlight the positive aspects of Rohm and Haas' culture in the new company.

    Pros

    Historically, it has been a great place to work. The work was challenging and interesting. The compensation package is good.

    Cons

    They have handled downsizing poorly. Rather than make a quick surgical strike, they dribbled out layoffs over time. Perhaps it is because Dow acquired Rohm and Haas early in 2009.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have to do reduce the workforce, do it quickly, in a single day. Do not drag it out.

    Pros

    nice location, good science, rich history, experienced empolyees, a safe place to work, nice campus, good benefit, flexible working hours

    Cons

    It was brought by Dow on April 1, 2009. There are a lot of changes happening, including the way it was run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell Rohm and Haas to Dow did make a lot of money for share holder, but many managers and empolyee are losing their jobs.
