Current Employee - Intern in Avon Lake, OH

Approves of CEO

Pros

Great pay and the people are genuinely nice and supportive.

Cons

The work can get very boring very fast. I mean, it's plastics. How exciting can that get? Something needs to be done to alleviate the monotony.

Advice to Management

Take a more vested interest in the mental and emotional health of your employees. Sometimes the mind cannot handle another minute of staring at a computer and that should be seen as normal and ok.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Avon Lake, OH

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Initiative is rewarded and encouraged
    -Definitely no feeling of excess in the company - they run a very lean operation
    -Good balance of managers and senior non-managers
    -Great place to learn how to cut costs

    Cons

    -treatment of and reliance upon contractors is appalling
    -VIP/non-VIP class division is disturbingly overt
    -If you would not fit into a desired mold as an employee, there is no hope of being hired permanently
    -corporate culture is very closed

    Advice to Management

    Hire some of your contractors, or at least pay them better. There will come a point at which cutting staff to the bone and maintaining a frozen corporate mentality will diminish morale and scare away talent.

    I worked at PolyOne full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Day shift, 8 hours, tools availability in the shop. Generally good guys around.

    Cons

    Workplace culture is terrible (unprofessional, untrained, unexperienced personnel run maintenance shop). Constant complains and wining, and negativity from workers. Dirty, hot and dusty environment. Pay is median but close to low end. A lot of turnovers of the maintenance guys. If you pro, and want to work for long, in good environment: stay away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    Positivity is the key.
