    I have been working at Clariant full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, laid back, if coming from a larger organization you have a ton of low hanging fruit to capture on in terms of process development, standardization, etc.

    Cons

    Clariant is a perfect example of a Euro-centric company that has no accountability in any other regions. Large Supply Chain org in Europe (at least for my BU) and only one FTE in each region managing everything. They're moving towards moving operational/transactional roles to a service organization in India - Customer service, Master data, logistics support.

    In addition, there is zero accountability for anyone at Clariant. People go months and years without accomplishing anything and there is ZERO growth for anyone who desires to move quickly.

    Pay is below average.

    They will likely also shut the Charlotte NC office down with this new Huntsman Clariant merger.

    Advice to Management

    Create an organization that promotes growth, hold people accountable, support high driven employees and put more focus on opportunity capturing rather than reducing FTEs.

    Pros

    Salary / Benefits occasionally the work environment is good. Good co-workers for most part.

    Cons

    Way too much internal focus, not enough care of the customer. Senior Management flies around world and meets with each other, almost never with customers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Customer

    I worked at Clariant full-time

    Pros

    The pay was decent and the environment was great. Also, lots of free lunches.

    Cons

    Pay is ok but the more you do does not necessarily mean more pay. Very dirty job and hard work.

    Advice to Management

    More performance reviews and higher pay for those who do more work.

    I worked at Clariant (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for this company for 3 years. They have Decent benefits. They have fair equipment and a fair schedule.

    Cons

    You start out as a temporary employee. There is a lot of favoritism. The pay is low and the moral is low.

    Advice to Management

    Form opinions solely on performance and experience... Stop hiring individuals that are unprofessional and bias. Allow for more advancement within company before looking outside the company.
