    Pros

    Great people and values throughout

    Cons

    centralisation, bureaucracy and fear of making mistakes prevented this company from making acquisitions that would have protected it against the type of transactions it is about to conclude with Dow. Good news is management has changed since, bad news is that this came too late

    Advice to Management

    Focus on revenue growth and not earnings growth

    Pros

    Coworkers were by far the best group I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    It was all about the pounds out the gate! No time for safety & making sure the technology was the latest. Why bother doing that when the products selling.

    Advice to Management

    Should have listened to the employees more instead of the investors
