    Pros

    Site personnel are very easy to work with, knowledgable and hard working. Resources at the site, while being steadily downgraded by mismanagement, are still world class.

    Cons

    Micromanagement by corporate officers caused significant disruption in the business. This is a public company that is run like a private one by one individual. The top executives within the coporation and the subsidiary are too weak to be effective.

    I worked at FutureFuel full-time

    Pros

    High competency of employees with varied skills. Most employees have over ten years or more experience. Company offers up to 6 percent matching of 401k benefits and gives a bonus to employees on positive earnings.

    Cons

    Poorly managed, micro managed
    Public company basically privately owned
    Employees are not considered one of their major investments
    Safety and safe practices have declined
    Diversity of workforce is poor
    No retirement package except through matching of 401k benefits
    Employs too many family members outside normal hiring channels
    Senior management has very little interaction with community

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring only "like-minded" people will only carry you so far. Only short-term results will be realized.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
