    I enjoyed working for this company and my experience was positive.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsProfessional organization and people, talented coworkers that make great teams. Even though the company is the largest ink manufacturer in the world, there is still a sense of family.
    Benefits are better than average for industry. I have no complaints, no regrets. I enjoyed my time with this company.

    ConsThere are no cons about the company, but the entire printing industry is in sharp decline. Unfortunately, that causes loss of business and necessary downsizing. I would not recommend the printing industry as a whole, but as far as ink manufacturers, Sun Chemical is great.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA positive sign is when many of the people have been with the company for 10 years or more. However, with that they are still looking for ways to remain relevant as the industry continues to change.

    ConsA challenge that still remains is altering peoples minds that the company needs to continue to evolve. Many people have been happy with remaining at the status quo and are reluctant to change however upper management is eager to move forward giving lots of credibility to newcomers into the organization.

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

    Review from a normal employee

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTraining is offered for professional and personal growth; work life/family balance is nice; fair vacation and benefit time off; younger people

    Conscompensation policy is horrible; no desire to get promoted because you won't get paid for the job you're doing; communication isn't that great

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk employees (the people doing the work) their opinion, include them in more projects, change compensation policy - someone getting hired from the outside should not get paid more to do the same job as an employee

    Lab Tech at Bushy Park

    Lab Tech (Current Employee)
    Charleston, SC

    ProsPretty good benefits and great co-workers

    ConsMy location has been part of the company for 10 years now and they still appear to be out of the loop and somewhat disorganized at times. I've been with them for two years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake feeling proud to be a Sun Chemical employee a bigger part of the company culture at all of the plant sites.

    Company was constantly progressing on national scale which offered opportunities, but stifled locally.

    Material Requirements Planner (Former Employee)
    San Leandro, CA

    ProsRoom to grow, always had tasks to complete, management was always helpful.

    ConsLocal shop was too lenient with employees who slacked off.

    What used to be a good place to work......The beginning of the end?

    Middle Management (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Benefits
    Fantastic People

    Company still has comparitively good benefits, namely medical and 401K programs.

    ConsSerious Morale Issues
    Senior Managment is Completely Out of Touch

    Round after round of cuts has done nothing but kill morale in all parts of the business. Meanwhile there was fairly widespread "knowledge" that Senior Leadership still got bonuses at the expense of the line staff!

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people!

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