    Pros

    The work itself is fairly easy, and the technical colour aspects are pretty simple. Flexible schedules are a great bonus, and the management try to keep you happy when they come in.

    Cons

    The pay isn't what it should be, especially when you have to deal with awful customers. If you need equipment to make the job easier, or sometimes safety equipment required by OSHA, it will take some time to get it in. The fumes can be pretty irritating as well. The biggest complaint by far is customers whom mess everything up then blame you. The benefits really aren't the greatest, and won't send you cards. HR is extremely slow at dealing with any issues, or processing paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    Consider making the benefits no-cost to employees.

    Pros

    Very low expectations, the current bar is the front doorstep.

    Cons

    Pay well below average, no advancement potential, no communication between groups, people with skills are ignored if they are in a lower position, Sr. management dictates but never listens

    Advice to Management

    Learn the skill sets of your employees, stop hiring outside when you can advance from within and learn to congratulate someone for doing something well.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Most of the people at Sun Chemical are fantastic. It is amazaing what people get done without support from management.

    Cons

    Upper management is completely dis-engaged from the employees. There is no sense of common goals. Most decisions appear to be reactionary, not proactive

    Advice to Management

    Share the company's vision; bring back the dropped benefits and holidays.
