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

    Pros

    Great pay & benefits!!
    Great co-workers in my department

    Cons

    Management is not fair to employees, they operate on gossip.
     always talk about company culture change, very few changes occur.The main issues are ignored.
    Company has bad HR and Accounting departments, most people in these two departments are not very friendly, you have to think twice before you approach them.
    Very high turn over in these two departments.
    Work life balance is not so bad, it depends who you work for.
    You can get promoted only if you are friends with the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Should respect their employees regardless who they are.
    Should stop listening to gossip and discuss issues directly with employees in a professional manner.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I can only think of one or possibly two, good benefits and a semi-decent salary.

    Cons

    Very bad environment, co-workers were vicious and out for themselves, no matter who they had to step on to get ahead. Direct management was an incompetent leader and not fair in dealings with direct supports.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the top management team are gone now but other managers are still there who practice the same kinds of actions described above.
