    Pros

    New company is taking over hoping things turn around.

    Cons

    Extremely lean on personnel that everyone is over worked with no time to focus on quality work. Since they downsized so much company has lost so much knowledge. Disorganized with a lot of manual work refuses to utilize their software systems. Depending on your manager, some are no where to be found for weeks.

    Advice to Management

    The company was recently sold hope the new company implements processes & procedures.

    Pros

    I love work here at Chemtura. I have learned so much and have been able to move rather fast to a Chemical Operator. I get along great with my boss. The pay is great and so are the beneifets.

    Cons

    There really haven't been any cons except for the fact the plant is getting ready to close for good. I wish that wasn'r happening.

    Advice to Management

    No secrets. Keeping things from employees are not good. Being upfront and honest is the best way to be with any thing in life.
