    I have been working at Evonik full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Talented global colleagues and competitive pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Multi-layered decision making and silo-ed thinking. Failure to automate processes prevents workers from being nimble and efficient.

    Advice to Management

    When you want to know how things are going talk to the men and women “in the trenches”. Do not rely on a middle layer “filter” of people who may be telling you only what they think you want to hear. Also, simplify processes for approvals and within systems. Decision making is multi-layered and many processes are over-complicated and/or manual and make for sluggish response time and make Evonik less efficient.
