I worked at Solutia

Pros

It is a large company, but it seems smaller because everyone communicates and seems to work together well. I learned so much during my time at Solutia.

Cons

The training process was intense, but overall it was very beneficial because I gained a lot of corporate working experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think management did a very good job of communicating with each other and relaying information to all of the employees.

    I worked at Solutia

    Pros

    Pay was excellent, benefits were really great and the company was pretty flexible with work home life. Management was supportive in work situations and out side of work situations as well.

    Cons

    You work a very hard swing shift, long hours and lots of overtime...the place is unionized which is positive but Solutia is very smart and know loopholes around union contract policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest to pay close attention to workforce during downtime, a lot can be accomplished during that time. Also bring back the Trenton, MI plant because A. we need jobs and B. the green energy boom is hitting here in Michigan so the photovoltaic product would bring profit and the shipping cost issue would pay for itself.

    I have been working at Solutia

    Pros

    The work schedule is very accommodating for young working families. Solutia also provides doors for people that want to pursue next level business opportunities for the future. Solutia is a very solid company to work for in today's job market.

    Cons

    The number one downside at my Solutia job site is that there are to many management - employee blood relationships, which causes management to make counter productive and unequal business decisions based on feelings rather than facts. This at many times creates an unsafe and hostile atmosphere on the job site between employees and some members of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wise man once said that true favoritism is earned not by favor but fitness (MLK JR.), in saying this I believe that each employee should be looked at by the content of their whole character plus their ability to perform a job safely with a high set of quality standards during the quantity of work hours permitted, not merely by just getting the job done with a quantity not quality job mentality.
