    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Solvay full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good people to work with, (fairly) recession-proof segment of the economy

    Cons

    Management at site sets personal vendettas against disliked employees, no fairness in treatment, no training program whatsoever- whatever job you have, expect to have it forever, company has had no clue how to handle a production facility this diverse or this in need of infrastructure improvement and uses spaghetti marketing in it's attempts to maintain/improve processes, weak-sauce union representation- if you make... a mistake, don't expect the union to be able to help you keep your job, poor safety policies and follow through on said policies

    Advice to Management

    From a corporate standpoint, move the current crop of managers and engineers on to other locations and start fresh here. The corporate culture at this location is one of distrust and inability to follow through. There is no defined direction except to expect to be walked out the front gate if you make any mistake. Listen to employee suggestions that would improve the processes and process safety at the location.... We're all in this together and we all want to make a decent living- there is no need to have such an adversarial relationship with the skilled employees.
