Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Pretty good graduate scheme.
Good culture and values
Final salary pension

Cons

Very low payer and difficult to get a pay increase - no clarity.
A lot of managers show outright favoritism - very clique driven.
Management pay lip service to reforms, guidelines and process - they just do what they want.
HR seems to be there simply as a cover

    "The true Croda way bears little or no resemblance to the one the company wishes to project."

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Has a final salary pension scheme.

    Cons

    Management by stick rather than carrot. Virtually no opportunity for advancement for non graduates. Inflexible hours for below average pay.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to completely change how it treats it's low level employees. Try support and encouragement instead of blame and punish.
