      Company in process to transform with uncertain outcome

      Dec 2, 2021 - Technologist 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits are decent but are now industry average at best (no longer big competitive advantage to hire). Work-from-home policy exists but it remains up to the line manager to decide who benefits from it or not (which makes it very subjective). Free coffee and tea in often nicely renovated break-out rooms.

      Cons

      Misalignment of vision and direction: company is stuck with cumbersome bureaucracy and overwhelming degree of policies to get work done and to be actually innovative. Nobody dares to tackle this white elephant in the room. Simplification strategies only shifted workload from one place to another. Compromised values and beliefs: mediocracy is often promoted which frustrates skilled colleagues who are stuck career-wise in the company but who do the actual work. Innovation in new technology outside the existing lubricant/oil business is not seriously considered mainly due to risk aversion and enforced alignment with shareholders. Culture change: constant fixed cost cutting leads to a significant frustration of colleagues and fear. Both can create a toxic work environment which is fully overlooked and ignored. Cumbersome interview process for external candidates which often selects the wrong people for the job needed. The process looks for leaders but most positions in reality don’t provide leadership opportunities. That’s why there is a high turn-around of new hires due to unfulfilled expectations from both sides.

      Specialty Chemical industry Safety leader

      Apr 19, 2021 - Consultant in Linden, NJ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Small enough and friendly enough to feel like you're making a difference. Not a super siloed organization. Safety culture is top notch. Very collaborative

      Cons

      Sometimes folks are not clear that they are operating on a 'different' page when collaborating. Sometimes individuals can play things too close to the vest. However, when teams are encouraged to be transparent, there is a commitment to get the job done.

      Great work/life balance with growing future as they transform

      Pros

      Very reputable company which offers advancement and great work/life balance! Historically an older school company which is becoming more progressive, going through a transformation from specialty additive company to special chemical company. CEO is fantastic guy, very personable and ensures he interacts with all employees and customers when possible.

      Cons

      Very structured, process oriented company to the fault some employees are concern to take action until all processes are complete and they confirm no other processes are applicable.
