I worked at Bostik full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The department I worked in had the team spirit and was a wonderful group to work with.

Unfortunately R&D was relocated and they lost very talented people.

Advice to Management

Upper management is where the positions were relocated and I have no nice words for them,

    I worked at Bostik full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A steady line of work making world changing adhesive formulas that potentially affect global markets and products. It's great to point to products being produced around the world that use our adhesives in innovative ways developed in a metal cup on a benchtop where I work. It will always be hard to outsource innovation to foreign companies. Usually adhesives can be replaced, but a few have a nice long run that brings in steady business.

    Cons

    Company has moved away from innovation toward mainstream product lines instead of holding fast to the one area that can't be transferred to cheaper labor pools, fast development and innovative technologies. The company has not made efforts to grow it's employees abilities or tap into it's strengths. Too much dependence on top down management that gets excited about people with advanced degrees.

    Advice to Management

    Dump the top down product development efforts. One failure after another. Get ideas on new markets from employees doing their shopping. Brainstorm new uses for products and stop chasing established markets. Instead of seeking presidential size markets grow new grassroots markets from scratch.
