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

    Pros

    Employees are open and willing to help each other succeed. Monthly meeting keep organization up to date on financials, HR, product and safety information. Provides many of the perks most companies have eliminated - free coffee, holiday party, summer picnic, quarterly events, and a profit sharing bonus awarded if company goals are met.

    Cons

    Multitasking multiple projects is a constant. Fast growing company creates constant reorganization of personnel. International locations manufacturing ramp up requires the company to redefine processes that traditionally were all handled in USA and is not yet a cohesive process for all departments.

    Advice to Management

    When positions become open (for whatever reason) the shifting of workload to other departmental employees is difficult. Especially when it takes a long time to back fill or if the position has been eliminated. The workload off loaded on the existing department is often seen by the employee as unrecognized by management. Operating as an international organization with different time zones often makes work/life balance difficult.

    Pros

    Dymax is growing, and growing fast. You are able to work on a lot of large projects, and really expand your skill set

    Cons

    It is fast pace, not everyone can handle that. If you are self motivated and want the ability to learn and grow you will do fine there.

    Advice to Management

    There is often scope creep in people's job, just remember to recognize that once in a while.

    I have been working at Dymax full-time

    Pros

    Dymax is a small but dynamic company with a performance-driven but family-oriented culture. They are not afraid to reward high-performers or get rid of dead weight, which makes for a really efficient work environment where you can rely on everyone to do their jobs well. Company is growing which helps build confidence in the stability of jobs. Competitive pay, adequate benefits, and a friendly and supportive work environment are all pros. As a family-owned business, they still have several events per year (Summer work picnic, Christmas party, etc) to reward workers and build the culture. Good work/life balance expectations

    Cons

    Benefits are only adequate and in some areas sub-par; location in Torrington, CT is a bit out of the way and far from preferred housing; CT is expensive overall

    I worked at Dymax (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, employees are cared about, a good structure of work instructions and onboarding help employees understand how their role effects the process from beginning to end.

    Cons

    The only con is that I can no longer say they are my current employer, due to illness. 😞

    Advice to Management

    Always keep in mind that quality over quantity will keep you on top. Some fresh ideas in multimedia marketing are worth pursuing.

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

    Pros

    The products and technology are interesting
    There are nice people but they are outweighed by the negativity
    Personal pro: it is close to home

    Cons

    Zero team spirit, managers do not listen to their team and instead impose their will.
    There are co-workers who will rather see the ship go down than change their ways for the better. The environment is hostile and full of backstabbing. If you make a mistake you will hear it time after time and the good work goes by ignored. The high turn over rate is reflective of the revolving door of employees.

    Pros

    A lot of great growth potential at Dymax; they really invest in their employees and promote within.

    Cons

    It can be hard to keep up with the growth, it is a very fast paced environment.

    Get everyone on the same page going forward.

    Pros

    Growth oriented company that may bring great opportunity to the right people.

    Management team is bright and aggressive.

    Dymax treats the employees very well.

    Cons

    It seems there are groups or "clicks" of people who make observations and then report their view to senior management... it almost like being on an opposing team at times.

    It seems they are constantly looking to stir things up.

    Advice to Management

    Senior managers are stretched so much... literally managing activity around the world and in the same building... it seems too difficult to get a clear view on anything.
