    I worked at Nexeo Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    From start to finish, my employment with Nexeo Solutions was chaotic, hectic, and disorganized. I had 5 different managers over a 2 year period. There were promises made and just as many promises were broken whether it be departmental realignments, process changes, promotions, etc.

    Cons

    This company has way too top heavy: too many senior leaders many of whom are disconnected from their employees, and not enough time and energy is invested in the people who actually make the company run: the Sales team members. While there are some leaders who deliver excellent lip service, there is a lot of talking the talk and not enough walking the walk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the walk! Stop creating solutions in a vacuum and get out in the field and see what your Sellers are going through before coming up with more non-functional corporate answers to real problems.

    Good salary. You will learn a lot from talented people.

    Cons

    Lousy executive leadership team with no experience in leading a chemical company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul the entire executive leadership team. Hire executives who have held similar positions in Chemical companies.

    I worked at Nexeo Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many different positions to give experience in a wide array of functions. Benefit package is comparable to other like sized companies. Personal time and vacation time are part of the benefit package.

    Cons

    Recent "down-sizing" or decision to not fill open positions has added more work to those with already heavy work loads.
    Not any opportunities for telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consideration for the work load assumed by many individuals in relation to salary
    A better work life balance could be achieved by allowing telecommuting opportunities
    Better understanding of desk level issues to retain longer term employees

    Pros

    Empowered to run it as your own business.
    Access to every person within the organization.
    Great people to work with.
    Excellent Core Values.
    Take your work seriously and not yourself while having FUN!

    Cons

    A lot of work to get through, but then, if it was easy, everyone would be working here.
    Excellent compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before making BIG decisions around market dynamics, please reach out to the Sales Team. We know the customers, the territory, and what it will take to win in this space.
    Theories are great on paper, but they don't always work where the rubber meets the road.

    Pros

    The great thing is that we can all come together as a company team and strongly dislike the CEO together. That is one thing we all agree on and enjoy a good laugh around the lunch table about.

    Cons

    Once we used to make money, not so much the case these days. One of our biggest customers used to buy package and bulk loads of product from us all the time, now we're lucky enough to deliver 5 drums a week to them. We're asked by our customers constantly, "Does anyone at Nexeo know what they're doing?" To be honest, no.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put a fork in this company. It's done.

    Pros

    The company has great people, even though they are not valued or appreciated. Other than a paycheck there is nothing positive to speak of.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is as close as you can get to being in North Korea. Here are some taglines used: "Obsessed", "Great is not good enough", "Take you Job seriously, not yourself" and "be transparent".
    They constantly add busy work that brings no value to customer or the company.
    Inept Management, they have destroyed a good company with endless misguided decisions. They concentrate on endless reports, they have lost touch with reality..
    This company has a Bleak future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO is the king without clothes, he surrounds himself with useless unqualified people who tell him what he wants to hear. Management needs to leave ASAP, issue an apology for performing at such a low standard.

    Pros

    Energetic, friendly employees who desire to contribute to and be part of something meaningful.

    Cons

    Leadership cannot commit to a strategy, and employees are burnt out from constant changes in direction. After 3 years of constant change in directions, key employees are leaving for better opportunities and HR is having difficulty recruiting for open positions. CEO takes no responsibility and had the nerve to blame employees for negative atmosphere at the last Town Hall Meeting. Leadership doesn't live the values or help establish a positive corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave and let an experienced leadership team take control.
