Autonomy and accountability yet minimal corporate thought processing disseminated through the ranks

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at OM Group

ProsHigh level of perceived autonomy. Compensation seemingly at or above corporate peer group. Bonus paid (and can be calculated) on objective (tangible) goals . . . rather than subjective whims.

ConsHigh level management walk in and close their office door for the remainder of the day. Too high of a percentage of time and effort required to report (and support) internal request. Primary customer is internal though bottomline is based on external customer

Good company, focusing on specialty chemical growth, away from commodity businesses

ProsMaking the right decisions on investment into high growth niche areas, away from commodity business

ConsHR was a revolving door, % of sales spent on R&D was below specialty chemical industry average, New Product Development success rate was low

Work Quality was great, Leadership needs restructing.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at OM Group

ProsGreat Compensation Package, VP of Sales is a great man to work for, overall good experience with most of the workers personalities.

ConsLimited potential for job growth and advancement. Bonus structure only applies to upper management, small workforce means you will be assigned the duties of 3 personal for the pay rate on 1.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to vendor Feedback, they hold the key to your potential.

People leaving becos

Operations (Current Employee)

I have been working at OM Group

ProsIt's just a place to work.Do your bit & don't expect too much.Wait for payday.Try to be positive & life will be just fine.

ConsIt's just a job not a career. The Executive & Manager rule everything. No respect for lower wage or ranking staff. Make other lower jobs sounds not important. Double standards. Executives sexist, unfair treatment to staffs. Manager & Senior Management can't be bothered, as long as the is no problem.

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople management skills are what keeps your underlings motivated,stay longer & happier! If you say it, do it! Don't just preach & don't practice. Have fairness all around! Mingle & understand your staff better.Not just for putting an act. People are leaving not because of pay or benifits! They are leaving becos your Executive or mid management is the problem.
