    I worked at Kemira Water Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Having water departments as customers makes the business recession-proof. We barely noticed the recession, and kept working, and getting raises the whole time. The company has vast resources, and goes first-class on equipment.

    Cons

    Corporate likes uniformity on everything. The corporation is run from "the top down." Local managers don't seem to have much authority to run things their way. There is a lot of bureaucracy. But, it's still a good place to have a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be good to get more input from local managers. Local managers should have authority to develop methods, and solutions specific to their location.

    Pros

    senoir management appears to have nagigated our company well through the most recent economic downturn. I am hopefull that this was a result of forsight and not dumb luck.

    Cons

    The relationship between effort and performance to reward appears not to exist. Most people operate as if this is true and put forth effort towards goals that ARE rewarded. These appear to be blind compliance to management directives even at the detriment of business objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some backbone. You express privately your disagreement with senior management, but are not willing to take a risk to express an improved path of action if it contradicts senior management. Long term this will strategy will not pay off for any of us.
