Pros

Many good, smart people work at Chemtura. Unfortunately, the nature of the company's products, the bad economy and the inept leadership at all levels have led the company to Chapter 11. The company has gone through layoff after layoff to no avail, resulting in the departure of many good, hard-working people.

Cons

Lack of success, poor morale.

Advice to Management

Treat people with more dignity and respect.
