    I have been working at Arkema US full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small enough that you aren't limited by bureaucracy but large enough that there are plenty of interesting projects and different chemistry to work with.

    Cons

    More of the basic research is in France, though there is still a large R&D group in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the plants to ensure they have the resources to keep running safely and well.

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Arkema US in January 2018.

    Interview

    Initially multiple phone interviews and then months lapse before next contact. Next phase multiple onsite interviews, pretty standard questions and discussions. Initial feedback was positive, but over six weeks before the next contact to relay that they wanted to move to the next phase, but no details. After another six weeks I contacted HR who indicated that they were no longer interested. Very poor communication with candidates and overall lack of respect. I turned down other opportunities based on the feedback I had been given from the company, obviously a mistake on my part.
