    The best and worst place I've ever worked.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Tonawanda, NY

    ProsFor the area, the pay is great with lots of fringe benefits. The company needs a lot of improvement so there are a lot of opportunities to implement change.

    ConsUnifrax has the worst qualities of a family run business AND of a multinational corporation. A really flawed culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would do the company good to clean out management and replace with leaders who are committed to accountability at every level of employment. General bureaucracy, racism, sexism, and homophobia in the company culture are keeping some profitable ideas and exemplary people stuck at the bottom.

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

    Unifrax is a very profitable company.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Niagara Falls, NY

    ProsUnifrax is a very profitable company. It has smart Engineers who work hard to improve their products and find new uses for old products.

    ConsThe biggest Con about Unifrax is its workplace environment and politics. However, that is not uncommon to most companies. You need to have a thick skin and be careful about others backstabbing you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is doing a good job, however, I would suggest that the constant emphasis on new products is stifling innovation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good working environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOpenness between superiors and subordinates. This provides a good communication line and gives a feeling to express own opinions. Freedom to set own schedule in order to obtain the best performance for employees.

    ConsConcern over size of company and the ability for advancement. Even though there is an openness for communication there are times when it is hard to read situations in meetings, for example.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSalary competitiveness nation wide is not promising for this company.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
