    Stable company, spin-off from ExxonMobil

    I worked at Infineum

    Pros

    Old fashioned 70's atmosphere but great benefits. They really try to retain their employees and consultants. Major SAP environment and opportunities to go overseas for training. Even in a lay-off situation they try to place their employees in various positions. They have a Union that represents and fights for their employees. There is a Company picnic every summer, and opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    Nothing bad at all but can you add some interior design to the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing it's all good!

    I have been working at Infineum as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of Projects to work on, so u are not bored. If u run out of something to do, all you need to do is inform your supervisor and you will definitely be flooded with opportunities to learn. Work life balance is great at the technological center, cant say for the plant though.

    Cons

    No cons. calm atmosphere, laid back employees, friendly.

    I worked at Infineum as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fair pay, hard working and smart coworkers, company has been very successful and profitable in the last few years, opportunities to take initiative and demonstrate potential, quick advancement for people that stick with them.

    Cons

    Offices are old and outdated, management obsesses over safety to the point of absurdity (people will call you out for not using a handrail or not washing your hands).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remodel the office space!

    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.
