I have been working at Spartech full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

very unique manufacturing environment; great people who work hard; lots of potential to be a great company and supplier.

Cons

No training; sink-or-swim effect; management thinks they know what to do but wastes time on non-value added objectives; too many meetings; lack of direction for employees (both new and existing); very little room for advancement if any at all.

Advice to Management

Listen to ideas and be open; please stop saying that you want to listen and then wish to table it for a later conversation; please implement a training program to provide structure for any new/existing employees. Maybe PolyOne merger is a good idea afterall...
