Former Intern - Emulsions

I worked at Wacker Chemie for less than a year

Pros

I was hired as a chemist intern with a very specific goal that broadened exponentially the more I got into my research. I was mostly left to myself but I never felt alone, I always had resources at... my disposal; whether it be contacts within the company, chemicals supplied, technology or instruments I needed. I felt like what I was doing was being taken seriously by the higher ups and was always included in project groups. I was given my own office space in a shared trailer as well.

Cons

The long hours and repetitive testing seemed very monotonous, albeit important to a production facility.

Advice to Management

The only thing that I really needed was better training with the company intranet, although that would have most likely been included with actual employment and not just an internship.

I have been working at Süd Chemie

Pros

The compensation package is pretty good. The base pay is below national average, but we receive a bonus depending on how the business does. It's been good so far. They are also generous with PTO.

Cons

The commute. Belen is a pretty remote city. The majority of the management team lives in Albuquerque. I believe the average commute time is around 50 minutes. Not bad for bigger cities, but it's a... commute for New Mexico.

Advice to Management

Implement telecommuting even for just one day a week. It would raise employee morale and result in higher job satisfaction.
