I worked at Chemtura full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They pay pretty well. Challenging work environment.

Cons

Expected to be "on the clock" 24/7. Incompetent Sr Management. No loyalty to "the troops". Chrurn and Burn mentality.

Advice to Management

Sell the firm (if you get the opportunity). Ciba did it to the betterment of employees (BASF is a machine).

    I worked at Chemtura full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BioLab was a great "family" atmosphere company, Had great talent and folks respected one another. Leader in the market with a loyal following.

    Cons

    Corporate influence who really didn't understand the business. Subbusiness had to run everything through corporate, causing delay to action, improper decisions and loss of business.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the old executive team who was successful in contributing growth, loyalty in it customers and staff and gave the corporate strong bottom line performance even in bad times. Too much industrial influence in an consumer focused environment. Performance then.... and now...

    I worked at Chemtura full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good at Chemtura. The people I worked with were also great. Everyone had lively personalities and just tried to get all their work done everyday. They will happily accept new people and try to make you feel like part of the team. There are also some really smart people there too with a lot of ambition.

    Cons

    There very much exists an us v. them culture. No one approved of management as every person had an issue with the level above them. Employee reviews didn't make sense as regardless how well you did, you were never given the score (and thus raise) you deserved. There are a so many people at that company that go under-utilized and under-appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Your older employees have gone through a lot with the divestitures, layoffs, and acquisitions. Treat them with respect for staying around. Show some loyalty and try to make it so they can actually enjoy coming into work. You can not hire new, young talent, and expect them to develop and stay to replace the old herd if the company itself does not become a happier place to work at.
