    I worked at Solvay full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Long history of innovative products. Stable management teams. Most employees have a true concern for environment. Global company with global product reach makes for interesting markets. People with good ideas can bring them forward.

    Cons

    Since the management is stable and the organization is flat, there is little upward mobility. Though there is a call for innovation, some middle managers prefer to maintain the staus quo to ride out until retirement, thus they can appear to be un-supportive of new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Find more creative ways to engage more inexperienced employees.
