    Pros

    Great people to work with. Everyone works hard but there is a lot of room for innovation in every job.

    Cons

    Work life balance is an issue. Kemira runs very lean which leaves little back up support. Sometigs the European senior managment does not fully grasp north American issues.


  2. "Get up stand-up"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    senoir management appears to have nagigated our company well through the most recent economic downturn. I am hopefull that this was a result of forsight and not dumb luck.

    Cons

    The relationship between effort and performance to reward appears not to exist. Most people operate as if this is true and put forth effort towards goals that ARE rewarded. These appear to be blind compliance to management directives even at the detriment of business objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Get some backbone. You express privately your disagreement with senior management, but are not willing to take a risk to express an improved path of action if it contradicts senior management. Long term this will strategy will not pay off for any of us.
