    I worked at Unifrax full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    For 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It 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.

    I worked at Unifrax

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Unifrax

    Pros

    Openness 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.

    Cons

    Concern 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 ManagementAdvice

    Salary competitiveness nation wide is not promising for this company.

    Positive Outlook
