I have been working at Spartech

Pros

Many experienced employees who understand the fundamentals of the business / The majority of the staff within the Spartech Corporation at all levels are easy to work with and always willing to assist (non-financially) employees at all levels

Cons

Established managerial workforce - Minimal potential for advancement / Annual compensation adjustments often insufficient / Due to a history of mimimal annual employee compensation adjustments, many employees at the plant level have lost their motivation to perform their tasks effectively and efficiently; in addition to losing their desire to assist the organization in its efforts to improve. Thus, the task for changing the organization, in order to be successful in the long run, can be difficult for managerial personnel at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too much to type; however, the senior management team is composed of an excellent group of individuals, who have the character necessary to take the organization to the next level.

    I have been working at Spartech full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    very unique manufacturing environment; great people who work hard; lots of potential to be a great company and supplier.

    Cons

    No training; sink-or-swim effect; management thinks they know what to do but wastes time on non-value added objectives; too many meetings; lack of direction for employees (both new and existing); very little room for advancement if any at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to ideas and be open; please stop saying that you want to listen and then wish to table it for a later conversation; please implement a training program to provide structure for any new/existing employees. Maybe PolyOne merger is a good idea afterall...
