    Wacker Chemical has many good points; some not so good

    I worked at Wacker Chemical

    Pros

    Wacker has very good pay and good benefits with reasonable hours of work per week. You need to get your work done but you do not need to spend huge numbers of hours to impress management

    Cons

    The culture is not too open to change in the way the business is run. Wacker has a particular way to run the business and new ideas are sometimes not given much consideration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to change in the way the business is run. Give more control to the local business teams and back off the control the local country execs (as opposed to the business team leaders) have.

    I have been working at Wacker Chemical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the middle managers and hourly workers are very competent.

    Cons

    Upper managers will not make decisions so they can blame the middle managers who do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blaming others for your failure to lead.

    The company is fairly small compared to other competitors.

    I think it's a great place to work. Everything is satisfying. Would be great if could increase the salary of the interns
