You are on your own in your career, no support or mentoring

Scientist (Current Employee)
Marysville, OH

ProsEarly dismissal some Fridays, company cafeteria not bad, compensation is above average for the area, pleasant outdoor surroundings, free parking

ConsNo mentoring or support from supervisors; you have to "make" your own career. Serious old-boys-club style of management and advancement. You are either in the club or out of it. Heavy travel requirements with bare-minimum regard to employee convenience or need for rest during/after either domestic or international trips. Company provides three (3) days sick leave per year.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide some personal front-line supervision, mentoring, and guidance at every level of the organization, and recognize the internal "old-boys club" network that excludes contributions from outstanding employees. Balance the power structure between marketing, supply chain, and other facets of the organization to obtain better productivity and input from all employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
