    Great company - agile, innovative, passionate (prior to Corn Products acquisition)

    (Former Employee)
    Bridgewater, NJ

    ProsYou won't find many companies with as much passion about what they do and how they do it as National Starch was. Truly a specialty company focused on providing its customers with solutions.

    ConsAfter Corn Products purchased National Starch, the focus was on migrating National Starch activities into the Corn Products structure. Not enough attention paid to maintaining the innovation, motivation, and passion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to foster an atmosphere in which all facts are surfaced, whether the news is good or not. Try to rebuild the the excitement and passion which was lost when the company was acquired.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    National Place

    Starch Process Operator (Current Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsNational Starch is a very good place to work for their pay and benefits. National is also really thorough on preventing job accidents (They are big on Safety!).

    ConsThere are alot of young engineers in management, and I personally think it is ruining management. Engineers must not be taught a whole lot of people skills in there college courses, and if so they all think they are better people than factory workers. These companies need to stop promoting so many unproven, unqualified, and arrogant Engineers until they can prove that they are management material. To manage is to succeed, to function, or to progress while taking control of or directing a situation or workplace. Succeed key word.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut yourself in nonmanagement shoes, forreal then and only then should you continue with that inbedded in your thoughts continue to manage.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
