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

Pros

The team I'm in is made up of some of the best people I have had the pleasure of working with. We've helped transform our area of the business and have been lucky to have management buy-in on some critical projects which has placed us at the forefront of what we do and how we do it. It's a unique environment and I'm grateful to have been part of it as we head towards a slightly uncertain future.

Cons

The manufacturing sector Spartech is placed in has taken a hit in recent years. Budgets have been slashed, workload has increased and moral has taken a bit of a dip. Immediate future is a little murky with the impending acquisition.

Advice to Management

Information is key in this kind of scenario and the information being made available to employees in the run up to the take over has been severely lacking. Not enough has been done to try and retain existing staff which is increasing the workload when people leave Spartech for one of the many other large corporations located in St. Louis.
