    Good people, working experience can vary

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are many nice helpful people in the company. Work life balance are usually good in most departments. However, like any company, it all depends on your supervisor. Global company with opportunity to promote across region.

    ConsWorking experience varies extremely in different department and location. Limited raise if you stay in the same position. Hence, not good for day-to-day jobs that have limited depth in career path. Favoritism in promotion are sometimes obvious. Outside the people on fast track, promotion frequency are low or non-existence . Pay doesn't always align with people's competency and importance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to retain talents. Give raise to talented employee and focus more on teamwork.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Satisfied with company until the acquisition Of National Starch

    Engineering (Former Employee)

    ProsGlobal exposure and ability to move through the company. There are opportunities to grow in the company and progress your career. This appears to be a good place to start your career to be able to move on to another company, as most of the more experienced employers have chosen as their option.

    ConsLack of respect for experience, detached upper management. The new company is being lead by the National Starch group and they have very little respect for experience and will opt to hire new unproven PhD's to fill needs. The new group in Bridgewater spends about 90% of their time internally selling projects, very little new ideas. The general opinion of the employees is to pad their resume so they can move on to something else.
    Very little industry experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany desperately needs an efficiency study. The new company has a lot of employees doing busy work focusing on internal sales of management ideas that have little impact on the company future. A lot of focus is on empire building with little focus understanding products.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Big company with small company feel

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) Bridgewater, NJ

    ProsOwnership - you have the ability to make decisions and changes to improve your work and the company performance. We can choose to change our career path if we have other interests and there is a need for the business.

    ConsNot having enough resources to meet our customer needs and priority changes. Starting and stopping work is inefficient and this leave work undone and upsetting customers.
