I have been working at PolyOne full-time (More than 3 years)

Excellent portfolio to offer customer base.

Tough to do business with as each unit functions independent of each other.

Break down silos for benefit of customers and to become more streamlined and efficient.

    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.


  2. "Lean and Mean."

    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.
