    Sometimes, getting ahead in this company is difficult and it all depends on the management. Not much career path..

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Infineum full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company treats employees well. Benefits are excellent. Ethical organization that is stable but risk adverse. Considerable autonomy in role as assigned, and excellent work-life balance. Able to work from home in certain situations.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement: people tend to stay in their roles for years at a time (even if they have outgrown them). Company does not value employees who are not chemical engineers as highly or promote them as quickly....even if the role in question does not require a chemical engineer.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Linden, NJ

    I have been working at Infineum

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits, strong safety culture. Abiltiy to occasionally work from home for some jobs. Some leaders are so good you feel you would work for nothing (Sadly, this is the exception).

    Cons

    No career path for anyone with out Engineering Degree or PhD and many of them are not qualified to be "leaders" no matter how much training you give them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The career path brings unqualified people into new positions just long enough for them to mess things up, then sends them on to the next group to destroy morale.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Linden, NJ

    I have been working at Infineum

    Pros

    - excellent coop/internship program for undergraduate engineers
    - challenging projects
    - excellent support from more experienced engineers
    - relax and easy going environment
    - great culture among younger engineers
    - opportunity to learn and grow as a process engineer in a plant environment

    Cons

    - a lot of work to do leading to long hours (occasionally)
    - 24/7 continuous process demands a lot responsibility and creates some stress

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to allow young engineers to work in the plant and develop as future process engineers but try to establish a more balanced work/life ratio to relieve some stress for up and coming engineers.

    Former Employee - Process Contact Engineer in Linden, NJ

    I worked at Infineum

    Pros

    Great mentorship and opportunities for young employees. Flexible schedule allowed for excellent work-life balance. Developed my leadership abilities. Fun and challenging from the beginning.

    Cons

    Tough industry with tight profit margins makes work a little stressful at times and does not allow for opportunity for big salary growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue offering great opportunities and mentorship of young employees. The opportunity to be involved in big projects early on is one of the biggest advantages to working at Infineum.
