    Pros

    Retirement benefits were exceptional. Health benefits were excellent. Enjoyed my time at Cabot. Personal development opportunities available. I learned new skills and was a better researcher because I worked at Cabot.

    Limited growth. Typical disconnect/challenges if you don't work at HQ in MA. Salary on the lower side. Need a better way to connect various sites for collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend 360 reviews to obtain feedback on management at various sites outside of HQ.

    Pros

    Great company overall. Benefits and work life balance are excellent.

    Cons

    Management (or lack there of) could use some work. Good employees are overloaded while poor workers get away with doing nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your top performers and help poor performers grow.

    I worked at Cabot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great benefits, and peers are often welcoming.

    Cons

    Very few people are on the same page within Cabot's MA facilities. R&D in Bilericca MA is a great place to work at. However, Cabot's manufacturing facilities often operate at a grueling pace setting unreasonable, and inconsistent expectations from person to person with the same job title.

    Advice to Management

    Set consistent standards, and follow through with promises.
