    I have been working at Infineum as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    They really care about your safety. The company is committed to its employees. Everyone is very friendly. Compares to most American based companies this company operates very calmly and relaxed.

    Cons

    Some things are a little dates in terms of decor and perks.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the Curb Appeal of Linden site.

    Pros

    They took care of the employees I worked with very well, as retention is critical in their industry. Frequent fun "team-building" events. Big emphasis on safety. Soccer field, basketball court, and gym all on site. EXCELLENT corporate housing was provided to me and my co-op coworker at a fantastic discount.

    Cons

    The Linden area is a little boring but it is also a train ride away from New York.

    Pros

    -Excellent people to work with, everyone is accommodating, honest, and respectful.
    -Culture was very strong and employee morale was very high, which will keep you motivated and optimistic!
    -(LBTC) is a very calm and stress-free environment.
    -Projects are challenging but very rewarding, you get what you put in!

    Cons

    -There seemed to be variability in terms of getting a rewarding Co-Op project and being assigned to an adviser who would not be too busy to help out. While my project and adviser were both phenomenal, I could tell other Co-Op students got the short end of the stick with smaller, less demanding projects or managers who were always busy. But this was just an observation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, it was an absolute pleasure being a part of your Co-Op program!

    Pros

    Great mentorship and opportunities for young employees. Flexible schedule allowed for excellent work-life balance. Developed my leadership abilities. Fun and challenging from the beginning.

    Cons

    Tough industry with tight profit margins makes work a little stressful at times and does not allow for opportunity for big salary growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue offering great opportunities and mentorship of young employees. The opportunity to be involved in big projects early on is one of the biggest advantages to working at Infineum.

    I worked at Infineum full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company treats employees well. Benefits are excellent. Ethical organization that is stable but risk adverse. Considerable autonomy in role as assigned, and excellent work-life balance. Able to work from home in certain situations.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement: people tend to stay in their roles for years at a time (even if they have outgrown them). Company does not value employees who are not chemical engineers as highly or promote them as quickly....even if the role in question does not require a chemical engineer.
