401K Match - 4% + a minimum of 2% depending on your age
Flexibility - Most people are not micromanagers while still providing enough oversight to not allow an individual self-destruct or compromise the company

Due to the nature of the business there are minimal perquisites

    Pros

    great people to work with, great cultural mix of backgrounds, highly qualified chemists working in the trenches on a daily basis.

    Cons

    upper management is clueless about technology, people are promoted based on political agenda of the company as a whole, rather than qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for quality people, and the image of the company will improve. Have more clarity and consistency between all divisions.
