    I worked at Sun Chemical

    Pros

    Professional 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.

    Cons

    There 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.

    I have been working at Sun Chemical full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A 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.

    Cons

    A 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.

    I have been working at Sun Chemical

    Pros

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

    Cons

    compensation 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 ManagementAdvice

    Ask 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

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits and great co-workers

    Cons

    My 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 ManagementAdvice

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