Pros

People are nice to work with and deadlines are manageable.

Cons

Management is heavily skewed toward the members of R&D. These people hold some sort of power over the heads of every department that prevents them from making their own decisions.
Even when tech support found that there was a clear mistake on the part of R&D when coding a printer driver. The mistake was ignored and chucked up to the "s**t happens" pile.
The mistake would have been easy to correct and even patch the software, but that would have required admission of the mistake. Instead they let Tech Support continue to deal with unhappy customers until the next development cycle (1 year).

Advice to Management

Listen to employees more frequently, especially if they have direct contact with your customers. People in these areas can tell you what the climate is in the outside world and provide insight on how to improve the experience for the customer.

    I have been working at MacDermid Printing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Those who are internally motivated can amass great amounts of responsibility just by asking for it and successfully implementing. Don't expect any formalized training or documented path to success -- you create the path.

    Cons

    Antiquated male-led culture that focuses on cost-cutting at the expense of growth.

    Pros

    MacDermid Printing has an Entrepreneurial culture.

    Cons

    Often far too much to do. Senior management are unpredictable, and create confrontation. Sales orientated approach leaves every other function to pick up the pieces. Pay increases and benefits not the greatest.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people, don't overstretch them, and leave them stressed out. Don't nitpick small details just to show how smart you are.
